I think a lot of the Apple related stuff tapered off towards the end not only because of the upcoming apple products that weren't to be mentioned, but I think at some point Jobs had a lot less to do with a lot of those types of things, especially after he started having to take medical leaves ... I think he was primarily the "heavy hitter" for the last couple of years and he only kept on top of the things closest to him (like the ongoing product design stuff) and left a lot of the other details to his minions so he didn't have a lot of say about those types of things. His whole attitude of it's great or it sucked kinda shines through there, if it didn't suck then he had nothing to complain about and just happily did the things he wanted to or had to do to make things not suck

I am a third into it on iPad and iPhone. Like others I find the writing style a bit unpolished, but because I resisted going Apple all those decades, unlike some friends who did start and stay Apple, I was not as aware of the real details behind those early years. I'm fascinated with learning how personality, culture and philosophy wove together to produce Apple. Its like the book is filling in missing detail on my own early life too. Steve was so fully immersed in the culture of the time, and Apple's development reflects those forces.
Brutal, as in brutal to be forced to listen to. I grabbed a few minutes in the middle to get a sample, and all I heard was two guys rather full of themselves talking about screen resolution and how they prefer books on various devices. Boring. Not one word about the actual book they're supposed to be reviewing in the few minutes I subjected myself to. I guess that's why Isaacson will make a bundle forom writing Steve Jobs' biography and these guys…won't.

I regret my first impression about "unpolished" writing style when I was starting into the book. I couldn't put it down once I got further in. Finished it last week. Powerful story, well told. Historians will of course come out with different spins in time, but this author lived some of the story and got it first hand. I think it's a masterpiece. I'm still feeling the effects, even as I type this on the Mac I've come to appreciate even more. A life taken too soon.
