it was amazing

I was late to the apple party and only arrived thru the iPod. I remember getting the nano for Xmas and telling my husband you are not going to believe this but you just plug this into your computer and it works. I loved the iPod and that lead it iMac, iPhones, and iPads for me and my family. Mr Jobs was not wrong that if the truth of the product is there and not surface and it's executed in everything you do you will win with customers as they get you.

This book was fascinating, scary, and thought provoking on so many levels and layers. Have you have ever worked for/with someone who has vision for what they want? I have and it's passion, complex, and soul crushing sometimes but if you win it also one if the best work experiences you can have.

I don't know if I could have worked for Steve Jobs but based on this book I think I would have wanted to try. Excellent read on fascinating person who changed the way we interact and demanded more.
