I am not a big Steve Jobs fan, but I did enjoy this book. I happen to listen to the audiobook format while driving cross country and found the time passing with great stories. Many of the topics covered in the book I was aware of, but had no idea of the first hand experience of Steve. I give any man credit that raises to the status of Steve even if I disagree with the man. This is my only Jobs book so I have nothing else to compare, but this book is very much worth the read or listen.
Great book. Anyone who is inspired to become an entrepreneur, or anything in the business world should read The Steve Jobs Ways.
