Superb modern biography of a flawed genius. Warts and all story of the emergence of Apple the organisation, and the evolution of Jobs the man.
The life of this man change the world
That it True
It make me stay awake some nights just listening
The best resent biografi book that I read / listen
More interested in serious conversations that most writers fail to discuss. Would find unsubstantiated theories and comments a bore
In the top half
His rilvary with Bill Gates
When Jobs was ousted from Apple
Strongly recommend for anyone interested in facts about greatness
I've only listened to George R.R. Martin's
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.
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.
If you ever had doubts about your passion in life then listen to this book... you will never doubt yourself again
If you believe in something stick with it
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.
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..
Steve Jobs, the man accomplished so much in his life and the way he lived it is amazing. But it is not all sunshine that he lived
The narrator is ok but the audio quality isn't that great i.m.o
We are not fond by rules
Audio version is far better than print one, because you can walk while listening... just like Steve Jobs would do.
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.
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.
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!
You could hate Steve Jobs in some ways but I think you'll end up admiring and respecting what he achieved.
"Stick with it"
very fascinating if not a little amercianised but a very interesting story to listen to.
Over 20 hours and I still wanted more. I realy did enjoy every minuet of it.
Its a must buy.
"Inside the head of a genius..."
This is only the third biography I have ever read and I really did not want it to end. fascinating story fascinating times and a fascinating man. Read this book.
This audiobook is well worth a listen for any Apple fans who admire the work of Steve Jobs and his achievements.
"Amazing and inspiring story"
I loved it the story was good and well told . It really shows you how much of your life is depending and thank to people like Jobs . Certainly pushes you to greatness .
"Really enjoyed this"
im not a bug technology geek but jsut had a passing interest in apple products. this is a grwat story. well written and seems like an honest insight into the man behind apple
"Not bad at all"
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.
Great listen really allows you to understand jobs complex character and the genius he was. Very sad to Finnish it will have to start all over again
