Prasad GR’s review of Steve Jobs

In terms of his family, it seemed as if his attention to them was given only when it was not required or demanded elsewhere. Having not read this book yet, I took for granted nearly all of what he accomplished.

Funnily, some of his temper tantrums recounted by Isaacson reminded me of an array of people I have met and it steeve quite clear that these folks were completely mistaken in thinking that a quirky or nasty aspect in their demeanour alone could make them Steve Jobs, while in fact Jobs was revered despite these quirks, only because of his intelligence and an unwavering faith in his vision.


There was a problem filtering reviews right now. He had some regrets, which he expressed in his interviews. He impressed upon me the value of honesty, rather than trying to whitewash things.

Steve Jobs

My son left this book on my coffee table. Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family An American Life Walter Isaacson 4. His legacy is transforming jobz industries: Six Friends and the World They Made.

His tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values. Without his exact personality would the tech world have been turned on its ear and eventually controlled by Apple?
