Success is a mystery; why it finds some and eludes others. Steve Jobs has enjoyed more success than all but a few are fortunate to experience. This book gives a wonderful insight into his character, and leads you through the times that follow his departure from Apple. You glimpse at those aspect of his personality that were responsible for his great success, and those which make him his own worst enemy. Undeniably there is a strong streak of luck and "being in the right place at the right time" in his life. But you also find the brilliance and experience the driven side that makes him and his success so magnificent.
I was particularly enthused with the history of PIXAR and its role in the development of popular culture computer animation. Jobs hung in there well beyond reason and again his success seems to be half inspiration and the other half a mixture of obstinacy, luck, good timing, and other people's work.
There is never a dull moment in this book and I was sorry to see it end.
