In this book review of Steve Jobs I summarize my key takeaways from Walter Isaacsons fantastic biography of the infamous Apple founder. In this video I talk about Steve Jobs demanding personality, how he bent reality, and Steve’s incredible ability to focus.
Steve Jobs in a fascinating character and if you want to read a biography about his you should consider reading Walter Isaacson’s biography.
What’s your favorite biography you read these last couple of years???
For me, it’s this gripping biography of one of the most prominent innovator of our time.
——- WHY THIS BOOK? ———
The first reason this book is one of my favorites is because Walter Isaacson managed to pull of the incredible feat of writing a 600 page book without any slow parts or low points, and second reason being Steve himself—for being such an interesting fella! It an excellent biography!
————— IMPACT —————
There is something fascinating with the intensity and focus with which Steve engaged with the world. That’s what I’m taking away from this book: engage fully in what you do!
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”
⁃ Steve Jobs
