If you have any interest in the computer industry at all, you will love this audio book. I was fascinated by the details that were given throughout the book. I was especially fascinated by the history it gave about Pixar, and the early years of computer animation. And if you have even the slightest interest in Steve Jobs or Apple, you will love it.
Some reviewers said the book was mean spirited, but I didn't get that at all. It seemed blatantly honest. Sometimes that was a good thing, sometimes not, And the use of profanity was few and far between, and was only when it applied to the story. Some people need to loosen up a little.
All in all, it was hands down my best audible purchase yet. I couldn't stand to have to pause my iPod when I got to work, and couldn't wait to pick up with the story when I left.

An interesting account of the later career of Apple's co-founder. It is not hagiography; it strives to give a coherent account of a very eccentric personality, and some of the traits and incidents described are fairly disquieting. You catch a glimpse, I think, of how compelling a presence the man must be.
He once double-dated with Bill Gates!

This is the first audiobook I have listened to and definitely not the last. I recommend this book for all who are interested in Steve Jobs, Apple, Pixar or technology. It is very interesting and the narration is very good - I highly recommend this title.
