it was amazing
bookshelves: 2016-br-challenge, best-of-2016

This books gets 5 stars from me for several reasons, one of which is that I was captivated for all 571 pages. Steve Jobs was a total and complete a-hole, but he was also a genius. I would like to think he could have been as successful while being more kind and less demeaning, though. It was fascinating to read about all the technology he had a hand in creating or inspiring, from helping Pixar become the best creator of animated films to developing the iPod, iPad and iPhone. He'll definitely go down as one of the best innovators.
