This review is from: Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography (Kindle Edition)I bought this immediately on release as I both love biographies and was keen to read about one of the most influencial people of today's digital age.
I was not dissapointed. The book really opened my eyes and completely changed my opinion of Steve Jobs and of Apple. Sadly it has changed my opinion for the worst. I was fascinated to read about his drug use and strict diets and it was a real eye opener to read about how he treated people.
Though I do agree in a way with his closed system as it has allowed him and Apple to create amazing devices I feel that this book has soo profoundly changed my way of thinking about Apple that once the rest of the industry catches up I cannot see myself remainign with Apple for my mobile and tablet.
It will also be interesting to see whetehr Apple experiences another contraction back to mediocraty with Jobs at the helm to innovate, or rather take an idea and it better.
All in all a good read, and though others have cited the authors use of a lot of quotes, I feel to do otherwise would not have conveyed Jobs correctly. And though far from excellent grammer etc it was still an easy read.
