really liked it

Beautifully written. The narrative somehow allows the reader to connect with the character, though it is quite obvious that beneath the genius lied a psychopath. Could he have done things differently (as I used to believe before I read the book)? Could he have been a better person, especially towards other human beings? I strongly doubt it. I'm fascinated by how that bloke could, on the one hand, strive to make the world a better place and to empower human kind, and the other totally lack humaneness. He did make the world a better place: I can't imagine how dull a world without Apple products. I suppose that's why everybody is so passionate about him. You can't totally love him. You can't totally hate him either. In any case you can't remain indifferent. I couldn't let go of the book until the very last page.
