Yes this is extremely funny in places, it's Michael McIntyre, that comes with the territory. It is also an inspiring story of a man who literally worked his way to the top. I couldn't put it down...no wait that's not it.... but I did take the very long way home and became the worlds most courteous driver, to hear the end of this audio book. It was beautifully told by the man himself. It was an emotional journey which I truely enjoyed!
This was in some ways better than his DVD's as this is not a performance but a window into the humour of the man himslef.
It was as if they ran out of time or inspiration toward the end of the book. There wasn't the usual Patterson magic. It felt rushed and predictable. I remember thinking, "Really, is that it??"
It was an enjoyable story, but not one I would bother listening to again.
Steve Jobs proves that imperfect people can still change the world. As a man he was flawed, but as a visionary he was a genius! I enjoyed the technological trip down memory lane as well as the background to the products we see today. I think the book is informative and honest and I moved from feelings of inspiration to anger. For example had he listended to medical advice earlier instead of arrogantly dismissing them, would he still be with us today?
I would recommend that anyone with a passion for design, computers or technology listen to this book. Steve Jobs was obsessed with producing the best product possible. I wonder whether we will ever see another Steve Jobs in this disposable, money driven world?
He insisted that the engineers design the memory chips inside the Macintosh match the rest of the computer, even though no customers would ever see inside. That is commitment to design.
