It was a bit early for me when I first had this book in my hands. Don’t think I really understood it at that time as I was just beginning to read and learn about entrepreneurship and to be honest Steve isn’t the nicest guy as a leader, but is definitely one of the best there is/was.
Apple lost it’s leader along with it’s advantage in the gadget “war” that is happening right now. Probably he was not the mastermind behind all products but he was surely the visionary man that made Apple so successful.
In the book you get the perspective of Jay Elliot, former senior vice president at Apple, who worked along Steve for a quite a while and saw the company and Steve both growing and struggling.
If there is one thing I would have to recall after reading this book is that Apple’s No 1 was: stubborned (in a good way), very convincing, visionary and detailed oriented, all of which make him probably one of a kind.
So, yes…definitely deserves a read.
