simply the best,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Steve Jobs (English Edition) (Kindle Edition)
I have to admit in advance that I am Apple fan. I saw my first Mac (Mac SE twin floppy drives no HD) in 1986 when I got a job selling them to printers, design studios etc for an Apple Dealer in the UK. I taught myself how to use it in a few days and never looked back. I went through all the Apple ups and downs over the next 20+ years so I also have a pretty good idea of Apple with and without Steve Jobs. I have also read a great deal about him and the company including books from John Sculley et al.
This book misses some of the goods things that came out of Apple in the post Jobs era such as the FX, LC and System 7. All of these plus a few other things were pretty good and System 7 was ahead of its time and offered many great features. But this is not the main idea behind the book and many other books cover these subjects much better. Also these things are of course a matter of taste and the same applies to current Apple products too. I liked the FX, LC and System 7. That simple.
Back to the book! It is great and it really goes behind the scenes to give a human face to the founder and head of Apple. It is not always kind to Steve Jobs and I often found myself thinking that here is a truly horrible and nasty person who has some serious issues! But you still can't help liking him and what he created. The fact that he died so young (relatively speaking) it some way goes to show how right he was about his passion and desire to get things done properly. Things may have been different if he thought he had more time or if he was more forgiving.
I cannot guarantee that you will like its main character as at times he is not very likeable. But it gives a fascinating insight to him, Apple and many other people (many of them unsung heroes of the IT age) and what they created.
A warts and all book showing the human side of a man looking back on his life while facing death. Moving and insightful.
