Simplicity isn’t just a design principle at Apple - it’s a value that permeates every level of the organization. The obsession with Simplicity is what separates Apple from other technology companies. It’s what helped Apple recover from near death in 1997 to become the most valuable company on Earth in 2011. Thanks to Steve Jobs’s uncompromising ways, you can see Simplicity in everything Apple does: the way it’s structured, the way it innovates, and the way it speaks to its customers.

This book reflects upon one of the greatest brands in history, Apple, and the creator of that brand, Steve Jobs. But personally I found it boring and finally bailed about half way through. It just didnt tell enough about the personalities behind the story...it was more factual about the work itself. I work in advertising so one would think I would find it interesting but all he did was express the creative process.

I was not crazy about the audio. The narrator's male voices were somewhat annoying.
However the story itself was nice. I liked that the beginning was very in depth. She built up the characters nicely and set a good stage for the rest of the book. I did feel the ending was rushed though. For all that build up and suspense, it went very quickly. While it was predictable the reality is that I enjoy a happy ending. I dont want to read about dark and gloom and evil winning out. I want to finish a book and feel like the characters overcame the adversity.
