it was amazing

What a fantastic read — it literally kept me up past 2am on several nights. And you know what? This may be the first 600 page book that actually felt too short. With so many accomplishments linked to one individual, you can't help feeling that another 200 pages would still leave you wanting more. That said, the book is incredibly well done, sketching a portrait of THE iconic CEO of our times. Complex, driven and, many times, a total prick, you cannot argue the impact he's had on our world. If you've somehow escaped being touched in someway by his Pixar films or Apple products, then color me stunned. Regardless, everyone should read this book to understand how a giant corporation like Apple can still bet the company on revolutionary products that make life better. It's an amazing story of a life that shone incredibly bright, but was extinguished far too soon.
