really liked it

this book gave a deep insight about Jobs and i would also say the evolving of the personal computer business or digitizing of consumer products and experience since late 1970s. in certain sections one might feel that the egoistic nature of Jobs was very negative and he was too bad as a individual but when you later proceed in through the book you will feel that its just a small part of his life. the larger part of his life was the way he pushed everybody to their excellency, he wanted the product to feel great or should have a "impute" as quoted in the book. he had a deep insight on what customers may like in the future and there was a great quote in the book about from Henry Ford that Steve quoted “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” He preferred his work more than any thing else and was never ready to compromise on the quality of hardware, software or design the product he produced be it the apple store, ipods,iphone etc. his work in field of mobile, apps, music, books has brought the digital experience to the customers like no one ever did before.another part i liked about the book was a chapter on Jonathan Ive and how insightful he was in putting out design's.
One most important thing is that i inferred is jobs was highly humble person as though he became rich at 22years and had lots of money but still he grew his career be it in Pixar Animations or return at apple he always wanted to form great products and i am amazed by his will to work.
Just because of his nature that work is everything in life he in the end told the author that he did every thing in his life and could not have done anything and that is very good as he died as a satisfied individual. that i think is great :).
