Ever go to a movie because everyone else said how great it was? Then when you go you are disappointed because your expectations were so high? That's what I thought was going to happen with this book. Several people told me to read this and there is so much business news about Apple all the time that I thought that my high expectations would lead me to be to be disappointed. Instead this book far surpassed my expectations even with high expectations going in.
It really explains why Steve Jobs was and is so highly regarded in the business world for his genius. There are all sorts of lessons on what it takes to create a great product and to be innovative. On the other hand, a clear example that business success and success in other aspects of life don't always go hand in hand.
I also really enjoyed getting a overview of birth of the tech industry in the U.S. The research done for this biography is outstanding.
I thought the narration was excellent and enjoyed listening to the narrator.
