Somewhat interesting, but seemingly rushed...
It was good that this book was pretty short, because, while there were some interesting tidbits within, it was saturated with typos, repeated/back-to-back phrasing (i.e, “going into the into the...”) and a few inconsistencies in facts. If it weren’t for the excessive grammatical errors, I’d probably give it a 3.5 or 4-star rating.
Motivating & Thought Provoking. But otherwise a history lesson.
It's ok. I felt like I was watching yet another fan made video of Steve's awesomeness, which isn't a bad thing. The biggest issue I take with this book is that the over-glorifying of Apple products and Steve's "intuition" does get it but full from the middle onward and it seems to take away from the main pint at times. However, if you can get past all the sucking up the author shamelessly displays, this book can take you inside the mind of a genius and perhaps provide a bit of motivation for aspiring entrepreneurs, particularly within the tech community. But for me this was little more than history lesson.
It hurt to read
Typos! And what's up with the 5th page?

Appreciated the approach to this book and the lessons we can glean from Steve's life and legacy. I would recommend it.
This had all the information for my BIG project thanks

Poorly written, no focus, words are missing or used incorrectly, overly fawning, the format is full of spelling and punctuation errors. Poor quality all around.
Disclaimer, I am only on page 13. But so far the book seems relatively uninspired, reads like a school report, and has a lot of spelling and grammatical errors. So far, I very much prefer the biography written by Isaacson. I'll write a new review if I feel differently after reading more
Amazing night with steve
Due to work load this time of the year , i usually spend all my day working , documenting , studying ... Etc.
That eventually leeds to a mind over stressed attitude . Which made me hate getting up in the morning .
So i decided i need a vacation to continue working and providing my best as i always love to do.
But one night ....................
I opened my IPad , clicked on IBooks App , went to the store and downloaded that amazing book
From the first 2 pages i was fascinated with steve and his work in apple , i couldn't stop until i finished the book and purchased Steve jobs Biography to read after .
The most amazing thing happened , Steve inspired me in all ways.
I walked up every morning , put on Celine dion music load on my speakers , prepared my breakfast , drank my Coffee , i even started exercising ( push ups ) every morning .... And went to work
And here it comes really awesome :
I was like an art student who is just have given some new set of brushes and a pack of painting colors
I re-wrote alot of my documents , changed my desktop wallpaper , prepared templates for every thing , re organized my PC , Send a punch of emails to inspire my work team ,......
So as a conclusion : that book changed my day
I find it really annoying that most free ebooks are not properly formatted. Case in point is that none of the paragraphs in this book are indented. This may not be a big deal to most people but I find it highly annoying and takes away from the reading experience. This is the primary reason why I personally cannot completely jump on board the ebook revolution and why many independent authors hoping to make their fortune in the ebook publishing business fail, because they either don't know or don't care that their book is not properly formatted making it seem very unprofessional.
This is an ebook, not a blog post -- it needs to resemble one.
It's for those ardent steve jobs fans, also a good read.
