As a computer hobbyist and an avid Mac user, I found this fascinating. It was somewhat biased, but I expected that. It was one of the most enjoyable audiobooks I've 'read".
The book was excellent. It quickly covered Steve Jobs career. It would be nice if it could be updated to include the iphone, etc in the future. But book was interesting, insightful and well done. I liked it a lot.
I learned quite a bit from this book and I am still thinking about it! Although I lived through all of the events described in this book, I am not a "news hound" and was unaware of all that Steve Jobs was involved in. He is truly an amazing human being who has changed the course of our culture and perhaps the world. My only disappointment was that the author focused on his business relationships in great detail, but gave his personal life short shrift. He outlined emotional drama at work many times, but then said: "Oh, yeah, he got married." Writen by a man...
An enjoyable listen, but I found the content and narration a little to puffy and PR-ish. Any biography of Jobs must recognize his genius and his fatal character flaws. This work gushed enthusiastically about the former, and quickly glossed over the latter.
