it was amazing

Don't let the size of the book fool you - this is a well-written, extremely interesting portrayal of a complex visionary: abrasive, unpredictable, but able to push people to create the 'impossible'. Steve Jobs had a hand in creating so many things we take for granted. By the end of the book, it began to feel like a bit of an Apple commercial, and hero worship of Jobs - but then again, the reality is that Apple created a lot of fine products (including the phone on which I'm writing this review) and the design, insight, practicality of the products was largely due to Jobs' relentless pursuit of perfection.

I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a dynamic read, entrepreneurship, technology, creativity, design, art, or intriguing individuals.
