So Much Hostility
May 1, 2012
Some of the insider stories and descriptions of Apple's internal workings are fascinating. And if the author had stuck to that (or even mostly to that), this would have been an enjoyable book. Unfortunately, for every sentence of interesting fact, there are two ranting about how terrible Apple and Steve Jobs are/were. I don't know what injustice the author was done by Apple to be so bitter (that would have been an interesting story no doubt) but his hostility keeps seeping though and ruins the book.
I'm sure the author feels like he's justified his rants but I wish he would have trusted his stories to stand for themselves and let readers form their own opinions. As it is, half the book reads like a 10-year-old calling another kid a jerk on the playground.
