Having bought e-book version which I have to say was a much better book then I expected I decided to get the audio book. I often take a trip in the car for a few hours at a time and it can get tedious just listening to music. Knowing the book was good I opted for this.

Isaacson's biography is hard to fault he doesn't pull his punches and gives a very broad but at times detailed view on Jobs his personal life, ambition and obsession/talent with technology. Very enjoyable and this really did need to be a "gloves off" type book no point landing soft blows Jobs clearly was a gifted but at times self centred/awkward individual even ignoring medical advice which would later prove to be ill advised. It explores the good and bad side leaving the reader/listener to come to their own conclusions exactly what a good biography should be.

Normally I am supportive of authors doing their own narration, but in this case Isaacson whilst competent, doesn't have the audible punch that some audio book masters do (Leonard Nimoy would have been ideal) It doesn't ruin the book though I found it hard to concentrate at times the tonal variations are not there good audio book readers can read the book as if they are talking to you, here he's reading the book to you which isn't the same. With an established actor behind this it would have been perfect.

This is a great book. Steve Jobs is a fascinating character, but the book is not just about him. It's about his company, his personality, his friendships and affiliations, and his genius that is still changing his world after his death. It doesn't hurt that the book reads like a novel, either! Highly recommended even if you are not an Apple fan. It's not about a brand name, but about a personality that revolutionized the way we live, work, and communicate.

I bought it in French as many others users. The language of the book should be clearer. Not happy at all, I wasted my money.
