    More interested in serious conversations that most writers fail to discuss. Would find unsubstantiated theories and comments a bore

    "Great, really enjoyable"
    Where does Steve Jobs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've only listened to George R.R. Martin's


    Did Dylan Baker and Walter Isaacson (introduction) do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    This is where the book falls down, Walter was good, but Dylan Baker needs more voices, Steve's quotes were a little differentiated from Baker's own voice, but the other characters, Woz, Hertzfield, Gates, etc... were the same as Baker's own voice.

    "Excellent book, indifferently read"

    An excellent biography which provides a sympathetic and convincing portrayal of Jobs, while not disguising his faults. Unfortunately, the reader appears not to have rehearsed sufficiently. When he comes across a new name he pauses momentarily as though unsure how to pronounce it, putting odd verbal quotes around names.

    "Brilliant"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you ever had doubts about your passion in life then listen to this book... you will never doubt yourself again


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Steve Jobs?

    If you believe in something stick with it


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The narration and the story was well put together so full credit to both Walter Isaacson and Dylan Baker in his delivery of an outstanding story.


    Any additional comments?

    For all those that worked with him, for him or knew him they would have their own version of Steve Jobs, but for the rest of us we will form our own thoughts based on what your heard or have read... but one thing none of us can change Steve Jobs has truly changed the way many in this world communicate..

    Story
    "Awesome book about uncommon man"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Steve Jobs to be better than the print version?

    Audio version is far better than print one, because you can walk while listening... just like Steve Jobs would do.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The one, when Steve Jobs says that he is an ordinary middle-class man. And he just does what he think is the best he could do.


    Any additional comments?

    Even if you hate Steve Jobs as a person, you must agree, that his influence was far and wide. And it would be good to know his motives. In any case, this book was written so anyone may have learn a little more about him.

    "inspirational"

    I've never been an apple fan, I own an ipod and that is it. however this book has made me appreciate them and Steve Jobs much much more. The biography comes across as balanced and there is plenty I dislike about him, but I also found him very inspirational. I'm gutted the book has finished!

    A thorough examination of the life and times of Steve jobs. Maybe not the most exciting of takes, but full of details and testimony from the man himself, as well as the key personnel in his life and the Apple story. Definitely worth a listen.
