I really enjoyed this book, but I kinda felt mislead. I thought that this was going to be more of a leadership book, but it turned out it was more biographical about the Steve Jobs at Apple. It was good, but not what I was expecting.
I really enjoyed listened to this audiobook. I've been listening to a couple of different biographies and stories about the early days of silicon valley and I heard a recommendation to listen to this one, so I gave it a try. It was a little convoluted how the story would bounce back and forth between the present (present for when the book was written) to the past. You do get a sense of all the people who helped start Apple and get it going. The worst part of this book, though, is the epilogue. This was added on about a year or two ago (the iPhone4 was referenced). The author tells how he is an investor in Apple and then launches into a praise-a-thon for all that Apple has done since the return of Steve Jobs. It was a little too gushing with praise for me. He did point out Apple's missteps for about a minute, but the other hour of the epilogue kept the theme of Apple's infallibility.
Other than that, I found that this was a great listen. Try it and enjoy!
