Surprisingly touching and soulful. and even more surprising, Emelio is a better reader than Martin!
I was looking forward to this biography, since so many people I know had read it. But it is the exulted story of a truly awful person, and I'm not at all sure I can make it through to the end, to see if it gets better and if Jobs is EVER able to gain a glimmer of compassion for another human.
Sure, its obviously well research and greatly detailed, if boringly, written. I can see why Jobs chose this author to be his biographer. He accepts Jobs' view point, excusing his obvious narcissistic personality disorder and beguilingly reports things he was told...like that Jobs was interested in enlightenment, when nothing in his life suggests he had ANY spiritual interest, unless it was to understand his own greatness or to see if he could exploit it for profit.
Now I'm sorry I have so many apple products, since Bill Gates is CLEARLY a better human being.
Monotone narrator does not help either.
Very entertaining and surprisingly touching as well. Have always enjoyed his performances, but now admire him as a man as well. Bravo, Bill
Michael's humor and optimism shine thru, as does his honesty and growth over the time frame of the story. truly inspirational. and made me start re-watching Family Ties on Netflix.
excessive verbiage praising the wonderfulness of Hilary Clinton, but no stories that actually demonstrate that she's wonderful. having a hard time getting thru it. there's a great story in there somewhere, but it is dragged down by the heavy, boring attention praising Hilary. but there is NO proof that she deserves all the accolades
less glowing adjectives about Hilary, more facts
