I loved this biography about this brilliant man. Before reading it, I always thought Steve Jobs seemed to be someone everyone either loved or hated. I figured this would just be a glowing tale of how great he was. It was surprisingly honest about his flaws as business man, friend, and family man.
I also don't get why many people were bashing the narrator. I thought he did very well. I've listened to many audiobooks with both good and bad narrators, and I thought the bashing was totally unwarranted.
This was a biography, not an autobiography. Even if had been written by Steve Jobs, it would be silly to have someone try and read it AS Steve Jobs.
I highly recommend it
This story takes a while to get going, but the characters are pretty interesting and complex. I like that no one is pure good or evil.
I know it's a series, but I didn't like the way the book just ended. It just seemed like a big set up for the next book. I'm used to stories having more of an ending, even if there are larger overall story arcs that span multiple books. I enjoyed the story and will probably go on to the next one, but I felt like the author kind of left me hanging.
I thought the narrator did a great job. Any one that can do that many characters, with that great of age differences has fantastic range.
If you know before starting that this first book doesn't really complete a story arc, then you'll enjoy it quite a bit.
I'm a big Adam Carolla fan, I've listened to his radioshow and podcast for years and I watched his movie and shows. He's really funny, but there is nothing new in this book. It's his same material that he does over and over again.
Bottom line, don't expect anything new. If Adam Carolla is new to you, you should definitely get this book. If you listen to his free podcasts you've heard it all before.
