Publisher's Summary

Steve Jobs was a remarkable man who wanted to unify the world through technology. For him, the point was to set people free with tools to explore their own unique creativity. Chrisann Brennan knows this better than anyone. She met him in high school, at a time when Jobs was passionately aware that there was something much bigger to be had out of life, and that new kinds of revelations were within reach.

The Bite in the Apple is the very human tale of Jobs's ascent and the toll it took, told from the author's unique perspective as his first girlfriend, co-parent, friend, and - like many others - object of his cruelty. Brennan writes with depth and breadth, and she doesn't buy into all the hype. She talks with passion about an idealistic young man who was driven to change the world, about a young father who denied his own child, and about a man who mistook power for love. Chrisann Brennan's intimate memoir provides the listener with a human dimension to Jobs's myth. Finally, an audiobook that reveals a more real Steve Jobs.

    "Beautiful! Well written and performed!"

    Doing the right thing around the collateral damage produced by a megalomaniac, narcissistic, emotionally retarded, destructive, sadistic, and self centered ass hole is not easy. Many lives are wasted or destroyed in their path, Chrisann Brennan does admirably to keep it together, sadly eventually she continued to be hypnotized by Jobs until the end. What is a slight to Tina (telling her that Chrisann is one of the most creative people Jobs has ever met) is seen by Chrissann as a compliment ("why didn't he ever tell me!"), but Jobs only ever says so to Tina to make her feel less of herself in comparison to Chrissann! Normal people, around crazy people, always have had a very hard time around them, doing so around an empowered one, Jobs (a vampire of the energy, emotions, and ideas of all around him) is much harder, but Chrissann takes the right measure of Jobs and does admirably so in knowing him and his effect all around him, surviving and eventually thriving!

    "Incredible Book!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chrisann was my favorite character, because she writes from her heart! I was so surprised to hear all the other "side" of the story! I was fascinated with everything and specially her beautiful way of writing.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book! Chrisann Brennan tells everything so nicely!
