Great story with very much personalized by Steve Jobs telling a quick story of the beginning and history of Apple from its beginnings f till his death in 2011. In fact, it shares couple of snapshots on Job's life during the early years before he founded Apple in 1976.
This book is written in a direct and simple style and has the potential to carry you over Jobs's 27 life changing lessons. When I read the notes referent to Jobs death in 2011 due to his cancer, I wanted to cry for I thought I had lost a American friend.
What strikes me most is that it is clear that Steve passion for Apple was all about competition and the desire to build something great. It had absolutely nothing to do with money but solely his passion encompassed with his great vision.
Besides hard work and talent on Steve Jobs, this book shows that Job's key to success was his "always on" researching of the competition and the fact that he was never afraid to borrow other's best ideas and make it better.
Passionately commit, share, encouragement, communication, appreciation, celebration, listening to customer, exceed the expectation, tight control on expenses while swimming against the competition. Apple and her leaders are real people in a free market to improve quality of American life by a focus on what people need and want, measured through performance.
Ultimately, Success is mainly about hustling it out consistently over long periods of time and Steve Jobs truly embodies that.
Highly recommended reading especially if you like American business and are a devoted Capitalist or a serial entrepreneur like me.

If you've ever wondered what late Steve Jobs was really like and what we can learn from him since the birth of Apple to a multi billion technology company CEO, this book/Audiobook is definitely for you.
I came out of it admiring him as a visionary and a very successful business leader in the tech arena and his greatest achievements; iPod, iPad, iPhone, Macbook, iOS, Apple watch and his animation investment,Pixar -- were all revolutionary creation, literally creating something new out of nothing. What would be the state of portable consumer devices today without Jobs?
Like many Apple fans, I have been fascinating with Steve Jobs and read a number of books about him since his death in 2011 however there's too many version out in the market. This book just deliver a quick and summarized version of the key lessons we can learn from Steve Jobs
Whether you are a casual fan of Jobs, or a die hard Apple like me, this book/audiobook is a must read!
