Maybe I've listened to too many books about Steve Jobs, but this one seems to be a high-level overview of things covered in all the other books I've listened to. So it's a good summary/review, although some of the statements are contridicted in The official bio that was just released. The one thing about this book that drives me crazy are all the mis-pronunciations. It's difficult for me to listen to the content with so many obvious errors.
The overall message in this book is that "all the rules you've been told about business no longer apply", which I like. They've gone against traditional approaches to business and have been very successful. It's an inspiring listen, but it does have a bit of an angry overtone, so you really have to be in the right frame of mind to listen to it.
