When I purchased this audiobook, I didn't realize that it was first published in 2000. For those interested in learning about Steve Jobs impact on the music industry with his fee-per-song service and the iPod, you will not find it in this book. However, if you would like to hear about the rebirth of Apple and his involvement with Pixar, this will provide for interesting listening. Depending upon your interest level in Steve Jobs and your tolerance for typical biographical criticism of a subject, you may need to tune out certain parts where the author dishes out his negative views of Steve's character. Also, if you are interested in an evaluation of the technology that changed Apple and led to its rebirth, you will not find it in this book. The author brushes over the redesign of the Mac, spending more time on Steve's personality than the product.
I disagree with the other reviews. Perhaps it is because I heard an excerpt of Po's book on NPR and knew it to be what it is. It not a self-help book, but a personal journal of his experiences with people as they make life decisions. I found it rather interesting and enjoyable. One additional note: I began my career in public accounting and found Po's narration on his first job at a litigation consulting firm to be eerily similar to my experience.
