    "When I was listening I didn't want to multitask..."

    Mesmerizing writing combined with a profound narration put you right in the middle of the action and transition all of the emotions that was happening: excitement, happiness, sadness, and at times I could barely hold my tears.
    The author grabbed my attention so diligently that I didn't want to divide it and at times I was just laying down and listening for hours!
    Before the book finished I wanted to listen to it again! Which I will definitely do multiple times!

    "Very good content, some annoying narration."

    The book itself is interesting, if a bit repetitive (I don't mind being reminded about previous concepts, but I don't know how many times Isaacson explains integrated design).

    The narration is alright, and Dylan Baker's voice is inoffensive, but his cadence is very noticeable and distracting.

    "I am not an Apple enthusiast"

    Even though I would not buy apple products I would recommend this book to everybody. Well written and narrated, gives an insight on the genius of Steve Jobs.

    "Nobody is perfect, but....he is a legend."

    This book was quite inspirational. With great clarity, it allows us to get inside the skin of a flawed man, somebody with a chip on his shoulder; and at same time, a man with determination and with an incredible vision.

    There was no many people like him, a guy with a profound sense of rejection, weird eating habits, and sometimes even with a dubious philosophy of life. But he always carried the special sense that he was born to fulfil a mission, which was a bit more than just to become a millionaire. It was not easy and it is like he needed the emotional turmoil that guided him through his life; and is that internal struggle that made him somebody who can beat adversity, somebody who sticks to his ideas and battles furiously for his beliefs, to finally become a legend on his own right.

    His legacy will still be present for many years to come, the careful creation of a world-wide brand like Apple will still shape our future for many generations... and his life, as this book shows us, will remind us that not even a "perfect" man; could achieved a "near-genius" status... You just have to put your mind and soul into whatever you are doing.

    It has been one of my favourite books of this summer and the narration was clear and enjoyable. I truly recommend it.

    "What a story"

    Great book, great life story, great narrative. You learn how to love and hate the guy and the narration makes for a even greater experience without over acting the characters.

    "Truly Excellent Book!!!"

    After watching Steve Jobs movie I was always reluctant to read this book despite having seen many positive reviews. But now after having listened to it I feel it was a very good decision. The book is genuinely written without any sugar coating. Just like an iPod, iPad, iPhone or MacBook😊.

    "Really good, enjoying it a lot :)"

    Been listening to this as the radio is broke in my car, and have found that my road rage has actually been cured!
    Content is interesting for someone who knew very little about Jobs, so really enjoying it as would never read it!
    Jobs was indeed an amazing person who I have a great deal of respect for now having listened to this :)

    "An amazing life, a huge book, made accessible"

    This would have taken me months to read. I was glad an audio version came out so soon after the book was released.

    It's all true, Jobs really did change the world. If you are interested in people, business or technology, there is something for you here.

    There is more business than engineering in here, but it is still fascinating. If you are in the least bit interested, buy it now. You want be disappointed.

    I would never have read this if I didn't belong to a book club - it was excellent. Steve was a brilliant guy albeit difficult. Recommended.

    "Excellent"

    I purchased this audio to listen to while driving to France. Even though it was quite long it was very interesting.

    It was also quite good to start listening to it again when it finished as you can forget the details of his earlier life as it seemed so long ago you heard it.

    I would recommend this audio even if like me, you are not a gadget person.
