He was not perfect. He was not philanthropic. He was erratic in his demeanor. He was pricky. He was many a times rude in his opinion. He was bipolar in his judgements. You were either a genius or a bozo.

He was all that you would NOT want to be and all that you would really want to be.

A book that does not pass a judgement. A book that does not eulogize him. A perfect "One more thing..." by the best CEO the world has seen in the recent times.

A must read !! You got to know why & how the ol...

Here's to the crazy ones.

I was looking forward to this book with Harry potter-esque excitement, before I begin this review I think I should mention that I am the kind of person who watches Steve Jobs' keynote addresses repeatedly for FUN! Me and my brother r the kind of people who find his product launches more fun than watching iron man, so I am definitely not as objective as a reviewer should be but still I will do my best.

The book has three acts, Act one when he started apple in a garage, Act 2 when he was oust...

A Peek into a Genius's Mind! Read slowly and you will understand the depth of his passion for Perfection!

What makes Steve Jobs so good? That's one Big reason why I wanted this Book! (Long before Mr. Job's death). You see I have this small magical thing called "iPod" which makes me go bonkers over and over again.... The sexy Android in bag wouldn't have been a reality without iPhone (I don't think Mobile Giants would have even dared to go this BIG with Touch without Apple's giant leap!) and don't even get me started over "Mac n iPad". One common factor in all these is the perfection he never comp...

Tells a lot, shows little.

The biography of a man who changed the way the world thought about computers, changed them from industrial devices to an indispensable part of our lives, Walter Isaacson's account of Jobs's life is hallucinatory in parts, and illuminating in others.

Having been a Steve Jobs fanboy (but not Apple's, since I'm Indian and cheap), large parts of the biography appear heard about to me. Isaacson draws upon large volumes of material from Jobs's legendary MacWorld presentations, and stories from in...

The MAN

One of the best i have read. The way Walter wrote about Jobs life right from his birth shows a balance.While reading the book its as if the entire story took place right in front of you. Beautifully written without taking a side.
Coming to Jobs i can just say that after reading the book it gives me immense pleasure to even say i was there when he was there. The person with the most complicated emotions yet he showed the world what he can do. A visionary who believed he can do anything and has...

BUY IT !

This book doesn't need a review. Its a biography.
And it shows how a great visionary and genius like Steve Jobs was only human, with all its failings.

Its worth your time if you love the work Steve did, OR even if you are a computer or technology enthusiast or even if you dont support Apple.
Just be open minded when you read this!

Remarkable biography of the man as the man himself is

Very few people had imagined the way PC and smartphones would change the world until Steve Jobs did it actually, with his undaunted leadership and ability to simplify everything from user interface to the hardware design which had led to the creation of astonishing and brilliant devices which always challenged and raised the status quo in every market segment it ever entered.

This book goes through all the ups and downs of his social and professional life, covering all the intricacies involv...
