This is not a Tech book, it is an insight into the person, and history of twenty-first century inovations. It does not get into the minutia of technology, but tells the story of a man who lived and changed the way we live day to day. There will surely be many more books written about Steve Jobs and Apple. But, none more timely and with the cooperation of Steve Jobs the man, who lived and changed the world around us. This is a great starting place for all future authors. I just hope the the author will make the hundreds of hours of taped interviews available for historians, and people who want to hear it as primary source material. Steve Jobs did not live long enough to read this book. But, wanted to help document his legacy, and for a man who gave few interviews and demanded his privacy, added to his legacy. His cooperation added the color and human side of who he was, both good and bad. It is too early to truly evaluate his legacy. Only time will allow us to decide what his contribution to the world is, but the hundreds of hours of recorded conversations will aid future historians. Not many individuals have offered this insight into their lives. I just wonder how different we might view other individuals in history, if we only had the ability to listen to their own version of their lives. This is a great listen and I enjoyed spending the time learning about this very private and secretive person.
I took my time and read other books along the way. Being close to the same age as Steve Jobs, I wanted to digest and recall what else was going on in the world at the same time. I will admit that i re-listened to many parts, and recalled a large segment of my own life, but it was hard at times to hit the stop button.
I hope you too enjoy reliving this history, and geting a little glimpse behind the headlines, and innovations that changed how we communicate and interact with each other, as I did.
