    "Short, snappy, to the point."

    Great to get some insight into the land of Apple.
    Done very well in such a concise audible book.

    "Nice little summary"

    These stories can be found in the Isaacson biography or elsewhere, but are nicely presented in this short book for easy reference or introduction to the legacy of Steve Jobs.

    "Loved this"

    As an Apple fan I had to download this, but given all the items out there about Steve Jobs and his "methods" - this is by far the most concise summary of how he applied his reality distortion field. I have listened to this multiple times and have downloaded other books by this narrator and by Isaacson too.

    "Informative"

    Written by a man who actually spoke to Steve Jobs. Gives a broad perspective of this man's genius.

    "What a man...❗️"

    Insight into the legendary Steve Jobs.
    Relatively short, accurate and to the point style means you get the condensed version of the book with no faffing that you can listen too several times without inducing boredom.
    Highly recommend for all leaders and anybody with their own business however small or large.

    "Short and Succinct"

    I enjoyed this. The stories were interesting and it is something I would happily pass on to others to listen to.

    "nothing new here"
