Steve Jobs

From time to time I like to read about great personalities and how their handling and decisions changed the world. I’m not an Apple fan and I do have something against Apple’s closed platform approach. I also don’t obsessively admire Mr. Jobs and its products, but this book gives you a very good impression how it feeled to work with and for Steve Jobs. Although this is the only book I’ve read about him, I think Mr. Jobs had a really huge impact on what we define nowadays a well designed product. I also admire his intention to combine arts and technology and give people the right tools to express their creativity. I highly recommend this book for those who want to learn more about how this whole PC thing started and why Microsoft and Xerox have missed the chance to revolutionize the world.
