"Not for me"
I would not recommend this book to a friend unless they were extremely interested in the history and minutiae of the rise of computers for everyone. Actually they'd have to be just as interested in Jobs very private life.
Yes. It felt more like a tretease by an academic rather than a popular easy to read book. There was so much detail about Jobs hygiene, what he ate and generally what an unpleasant man he was. That didn't tally with how some people seemed to like him so much. Basically it was boring.
Yes it did. The narration was fine.
Please no. I only managed to get to him being chucked out of his own company ...and I could not have cared less.
I'm Sure it could have been half the length at least without going into detail about his breakfasts!
"A definitive biography of a legend in his time"
Love him or hate him, Steve Jobs is an absolute titan of the computer world. He was responsible, or heavily involved in, some of the biggest and best innovations in the industry. This book outlines his meteoric rise from building computers in his garage (with his buddy Steve Wozniak) to becoming CEO of the most valuable company in the world.
The book is extremely well written by an author who was given full access to all parties involved as well as total control over the narrative and content. When you're finished, you'll understand how unusual such a move was for Steve Jobs. But it has resulted in the absolute definitive story of a legend in his own time.
I would highly recommend this audio book. I finished it in under 2 weeks as I couldn't stop listening at every chance possible.
simply loved it.. a true inspiration and an extremely honest approach by Walter.. As he rightly put in the end, Jobs is not really smart but a true genius..
I would define jobs as a person with a astute eye for secondary products and knows how to really get things done right.. learned a lot from this book..
"Respect great Innovator"
Well written good insights
What a journey one of the original pioneers who followed through!
Sad ending but much more respect than how media portrays. God Bless
"The journey is the reward."
Fantastic biography of the late Steve Jobs that doesn't gloss over the dark side, but paints a portrait of the multifaceted artist who built the world's most valuable company the second time around.
I don't really like biographies usually but I was drawn to this because of my fascination with technology and Apple in general. It was a fascinating story of a complex and quite brilliant business leader, whom frequently was a pretty odious indict usual but whose enduring legacy will be how he has changed how we interact with each other and the world around us.
Nicely narrated, shows both sides for Job's personality. It's a long book but it's worth the time. It shows how the world around us build by people no different all of us. Would definitely recommend. A lot can be learned fom it.
"Jobs the magician"
Not a perfect human but the perfect magician. Not for money but to create a legacy
I really love the narrative of the story. It inspires me to think, act, and imagine differently.
its a great story read in an exellent voice and tone
it is a modern story that we all think we know and then there's the book!
compulsion to keep going
