** spoiler alert ** “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” was mentioned by Steve Jobs, who was described in this book. At the age of 20, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak established the Apple Company. They worked roughly until the company grew into a large one, having a total of 4000 employees in a decade’s time. Its total value was 20 billion dollars. This company became an icon for many Americans. However, the advancement of Apple Company was also fraught with numerous challenges. Steve Jobs was next expelled from Apple Company. As a result, Steve Jobs was hounded by creditors. Unfazed, he developed PIXAR in order to recover his losses. Upon the release of the film “Toy Story” which PIXAR produced, made Steve Jobs once again successful as the movie became a box office hit. Apple Company later invited Steve Jobs to be its CEO, which he chaired until the year 2011. This book enabled me to fully understand the importance of determination in reaching one’s dreams and aspirations.
