Really Enjoyed This Book
Steve Jobs Unabridged by Walter Isaacon is very well written. I thought the narrator Dylan Baker was above average despite some of the poor reviews I read on him. I am a tech- enthusiast and theologian. Steve Job's was a complex man and Isaacson captured his very essence in this book. Having read (listened) to his so close after the passing of Job’s his book takes Steve off the high devine pedestal that we put people shortly after they have past and brings us smack back into the humanity of Jobs.
What I loved most about this book is how Issacson not only displayed Job's journey in developing business & technology but also in his spirituality & personal relationship and how each part of the journey intertwined with all aspects of his life. What I thought would be a dry tech book turned out to be both a very inspirational book about the advancement of humanity and leaves the reader to self-reflection about one’s own identity and personal growth. Jobs’ innovations and legacy will live on for many generations to come. This is a must read.
