This was a fantastic and detailed account of the trip thorugh the journey of Apple and the impact that Steve Jobs had on influencing its path. However, I felt there was very little about the personal life of Jobs. For example, how a man this unstable was able to maintain his marraige remains a mystery. How this man was able to forge and maintain any friendships is completely baffling. I am a huge fan of apple products and it didn'e escape me that I was reading the book whilt my 2 children played on their iPods and my husband played on his iPhone whilst my iPhone and my iPad sat next to me. Our mini mac at home is the preferred tool at home and despite having 2 dell laptops, I covet the Powerbook. I am massively disappointed that the man behind the machines felt he could achieve greatness only through being a horrible person to other people. Perfection is not attainable. We are human beings. He was fatally flawed to the end but the book is very well written and I couldn't put it down.
