In this encore to his classic 1987 unauthorized biography of Steve Jobs (Steve Jobs: The Journey is the Reward), Jeffrey Young examines Jobs' remarkable resurgence, one of the most amazing business comeback stories in years.

Lightning never strikes twice, but Steve Jobs has. Transforming modern culture first with the Macintosh and now the iPod, he's also dazzled and delighted audiences with his Pixar movies. And along the way, he's bedeviled, destroyed, and demoralized hundreds of people. Ten years after the leading maverick of the computer age and the king of digital cool crashed from the height of Apple's meteoric rise, Steve Jobs rose from the ashes in a Machiavellian coup, and has now become more famous than ever.

    " Didn't learned anything new from it, seems to be written by a third class tabloid journalist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 2/14/2014

    " Still reading/listening to this audiobook. So far it's been just ok and it leaves out some major details from some reason... (Apple's Lisa did not exist?) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Onur | 2/2/2014

    " I learned many things about Steve coz of that book. But, the things that i learned about him, made me less respect to steve. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon | 1/23/2014

    " A very interesting book on Steve Jobs and the rise, fall, and rise of Apple. Steve Jobs is a punk. He's a slave driver, but has found obvious success in Apple (though he stole most of it from his colleagues and took credit). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph Kumar | 1/21/2014

    " An inside peek into the the life of a man I admire a lot. "

    " Nice, but many rumors "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon Kempenich | 12/31/2013

    " This is one of my favorite books about one of my favorite business leaders of all time. This book is about Steve Jobs following his heart. Anyone can walk in his footsteps just by doing what they've always wanted to do in their life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Tolley | 12/29/2013

    " fun hijinks "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Azmir Ismail | 12/17/2013

    " The book is a good introduction about who Steve Jobs is, before the arrival of his official biography. It portrays Steve as he generally known, genius and tyrant :) also involved is the stories of Next and Pixar and how he was involved in their history. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chad | 5/13/2013

    " So far it's a real page turner. Assuming that even half of the stuff about Jobs is true, I'm amazed, appalled, and disgusted. For a mac head, this definitely complicates one's faith. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shagun Gupta | 5/10/2013

    " a pretty factual book... but that was understandable as it was not an official biography "

    " A riveting read, I literally could not put the book down. Recommended for anyone interested in business, boardroom psychology, aesthetics, zen and leadership. Also a great overview of the tech industry from the mid-70s until now. "

    " Amazingly complex web of innovation and "success"......while the purely bussiness aspect is fun to read, the personal traits of the "i Con" left me with mixed feelings "

    " Steve Jobs, what a brilliant brilliant asshole! Gotta love him. Never thought I would find the story of building a company so fascinating, what is even more incredible, is since this has been written this would only be ACT 1! This book should be expanded "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim | 2/5/2011

    " Excellent history of Steve Jobs two terms at Apple (and of course the time in between at Pixar and Next) - if, like me, you are interested like in the personal stories behind business then it is well worth the read. "
