Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Steve Job’s] story calls for a book that is clear, elegant, and concise enough to qualify as an iBio. Mr. Isaacson’s “Steve Jobs” does its solid best to hit that target.”  New York Times
“This is a timely and complete portrait that pulls no punches and gives insight into a man whose contradictions were in many ways his greatest strength.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“A must read.” Sunday Times (London)
“Exemplary.” Independent (London)
“Richly entertaining.” Mail on Sunday (London)
“Astounding.” Evening Standard (London)
“Isaacson’s exhaustively researched but well-paced, candid, and gripping narrative gives us a great warts-and-all portrait of an entrepreneurial spirit—and one of the best accounts yet of the human side of the computer biz.”  Publishers Weekly
“Dylan Baker’s narration is straightforward and precise, and maintains listener interest throughout—even during sections of text that detail the dryer aspects of the industry.”  Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“Jobs was an American original, and Isaacson’s impeccably researched, vibrant biography—fully endorsed by his subject—does his legacy proud.”  Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

AWESOME

Jobs might have been a bit of an ass but he was a GENIUS. We have him to thank for where technology is today. Absolutely brilliant. The Einstein of the computer age. Great auto biography. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great book, wish it could have be read by Steve

Great book, but unfortunately all I could think about was wanting to hear Steve Jobs voice. The story is interesting and compelling, but the reading is just lacking that spark which made Steve great.
