“. . . a wonderfully robust biography that not only tracks Jobs’ life but also serves as a history of digital technology. What makes the book come alive, though, is Isaacson’s ability to shape the story as a kind of archetypal fantasy: the flawed hero, the noble quest, the holy grail, the death of the king.” — starred, Booklist “Isaacson’s exhaustively researched but well-paced, candid and gripping narrative gives us a great warts-and-all portrait of an entrepreneurial spirit – and one of the best accounts yet of the human side of the computer biz.” — Publishers Weekly --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

I believe this book should be read by anyone really, to learn from it in many ways and experience the good sides of Steve Jobs instead of just the bad things that were constantly said about him. He is someone who had a big impact on the 21st century and brought our society into a more advanced technological world. Thank you, Steve Jobs, and for all you contributed to our world, your legacy will live on forever!
Be careful! It might give you this urge to start being an entrepreneur!
Good service and was delivered on time.
The only cons might be the price of the book that is a bit expensive but again, this is a great real
