The Man Who Thought Different 1. September 2012
Von S. Yoshida - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book resembles a parable for young readers. The author used the three stories from Steve Jobs' Stanford commencement address as themes. These themes were then fleshed-out with details of his life, from the interesting and inspiring, to the less-than-admirable aspects of his personality. Throughout, she used language and descriptions appropriate for a young audience. The Man Who Thought Different is a story of a life of searching, striving, resilience, and maturation.

I found the following especially interesting:

Jobs respected Akio Morita of Sony for his appreciation of beauty, and Edward Land of Polaroid, for wanting his company to be at the intersection of art and science.

The production of computer-animated movies requires algebra, geometry, and integral calculus. Pixar has several staff PhDs, including a physicist that specializes in air and water.

"Reed's tuition and fees for the 1972-73 year were $3,950 (about $21,400 in today's dollars)." I recall this figure as correct. I was invited by Reed College to consider studying there, to start in the same school year as Jobs. But, coming from a Hawaiian sugar plantation, I couldn't afford the cost. I attended the University of Hawaii for about $400 a year.

HTML, HTTP, and the first browser were created on a NeXT computer. Jobs believed that his machine was for interpersonal computing.

Perhaps this book could become a classic for future generations of young readers, and the young-at-heart.

Too Much the Same 20. Dezember 2013
Von PAULINE M. fALSTROM - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I didn't learn anything new. I had just finished reading Walter Isaacson's biography, which I thoroughly enjoyed and I was looking for a different slant, or new material.

A must read for our times 27. April 2012
Von anonymous - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book surprised me because I could not put it down. Typically a biography of this nature is not my usual pick for reading, however I found the book to be fascinating. The book flows and keeps your attention, it kept me up late reading it. Steve Jobs certainly is an important man of our times to understand and this book lays out all aspects of him, the genius, the jerk and the quirky!

A wonderful book! 28. Februar 2012
Von Eileen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is informative, well organized and thought provoking. Karen's writing in this book, as in all her other books, is a joy to read. While the book is written for students, I found there was plenty of interesting information for an adult - especially one who does not want to read the 656 pages of Isaacson's book.

A Great Biography for the General Public 2. Mai 2014
Von Brady Snedden - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different, by Karen Blumenthal, is a biography about the charming life of Steve Jobs. This biography delivers a pressing tale of a quirky young boy who becomes one of the most influential and successful men in the world, and shows that not everyone is a perfect person. Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different is a great book for someone who wants to get a good idea of Jobs' life, without getting too bogged down by the deeper details.

For someone who did not know much more about Steve Jobs than he was the CEO and founder of Apple, this biography was very informational. The book sets itself up on the three points which Jobs based his 2005 Stanford graduation speech: connecting the dots of life, love and loss, and death. Each told a general area of his life which was conveniently in chronological order. Connecting the dots focuses on Jobs' early life and how events just connected up until he was fired from Apple. Love and loss details how Jobs moved on afterwards, realizing he could still follow what he loved to do. This section also detailed on Jobs development of personal relationships and his family life. Death reflected on Jobs' final years, describing his battle with cancer, and his roles in the development of the iPhone and iPad.

The author describes Jobs in both good and bad light, which gives Jobs a humanistic feel. By showing his bad side, Jobs becomes less of an idol and more of someone a reader can relate to. Jobs was an innovative man, but his crave for innovation and perfection made him hard to work with, as he would often nitpick the smallest details of a design. But his push created products few would have ever imagined.

This book is great for the general Apple fan who wants to know the story of the man behind their company. However, this biography does not go any deeper in details than necessary to continue the story, making this book not as ideal for the Steve Jobs fanatics. A biography that is better for these readers (which is often referred to in the book) is the official biography Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson. Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different came out in response to the international attention brought to Jobs following his death. Though this book tells of an innovative man, the format of the book does not stray too far from the normal setup of a biography. For those who do want an extra detail, the end of each chapter provides a snippet of information about a specific part of Jobs' life, fittingly in a Safari-like window.

Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different provides a quick look into the innovative life of Steve Jobs. It shows the high and low points of Jobs' life, and creates a feeling that he was as human as anyone else. It gives just enough detail to understand who he was, which is perfect for a target audience of the general public. This book is fantastic for anyone who is curious about one of the most innovative companies in technology, and those who want to "Think Different".
