really liked it

This book was very enjoyable. Being in the IT industry having watched Jobs' products come of age, both at Apple and at Pixar, I really enjoyed the insider's perspective to the creation process behind these products. Jobs' management style could best be described as "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, Except for Those Who Somehow Think You're the Second Coming". I'm certain I would not have liked him as a person, but I feel this book does a good job trying to get into Jobs' head and describe why he does the things he does. He was a neurotic narcissist, but he had an undeniable vision and the will to enforce this vision on others to see it through to (mostly) successful products. Very well written and a good read.
