's review

it was amazing

As a straightforward telling of Jobs' life, the book is very good and is by no means meant to simply flatter the subject matter. It is rather an unflinching look at a visionary and reveals his many faults such as his questionable hygiene, odd eating habits and his infamous way of dealing with people. What I enjoyed most is that it can be a great case study into modern business management.

The Apple of Steve Jobs makes a compelling argument about the pitfalls of management by committee and shows what a singular vision can accomplish. His ability to combine technology with the humanities was simply brilliant and consumers continue to see that shadow cast long over today's technology industry, Apple and its current CEO, Tim Cook.
