4 & 1/2 stars really. I mean, my life isn't totally changed to never be the same again, but it was awwwwwsome (said in a singing tone)!!!!!! Let's start with #1. Great writing! I don't know how Isaacson did such a good job, no, a great job with keeping on task with his time line. Not easy! #2. I love, love, love that Steve Jobs told Isaacson that there was no skeleton in his closet that he couldn't drag out. That allowed us to have a clear, honest perspective of his life. #3. This book played games with my mind, games I tell ya. I hate him, I like him, he disgusts me, he inspires me, he shocks me, he bores me, his selfishness is astounding, his desire to deliver the best possible product delights me. I would think he's evil, then I would think, "Thank heavens Steve Jobs has brought almost any possibility to our fingertips. I would definitely recommend this book to almost anyone. There are ABSOLUTELY lessons to be learned! Narcissism, very unattractive. Power, needs to be handled carefully. Temper tantrums, should be left to 2,3 or four year old's, very repulsive from grown men. Etc, etc. I could talk about this book for 3.27 hours nonstop. I was disappointed that he didn't tie up loose ends with regards to his father, sister (adopted), Chrisanne and a few others. But all in all, I really enjoyed this book but, then again, I really like getting into what makes people tick & there was absolutely no figuring this nut out!
