Steve Jobs, one of the men who brought computers into your home wasn’t always the successful CEO of Apple Inc., the company that produced the very popular iPhone, iPod, and iMac. Starting from very humble beginnings, Steve Jobs brought the company to life, through ups and downs. He dealt with so many problems, even being fired from the company he cofounded. But ultimately, everything pulled together.
Any reader interested in Steve Jobs or looking to learn more about him would really enjoy this, as would readers who are interested in the beginnings of computers. I believe that all ages, as well as boys and girls, would like this, but I think it is aimed more at teens in general. Anyone who also likes nonfiction or biographies about influential people in history would like this.
Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different was very good. I don’t usually enjoy reading biographies or nonfiction, but this was amazing. I learned a lot about Steve Jobs and Apple Inc. I really liked that in this book, the author didn’t just throw facts, dates, and names at you, but instead gently introduced them to you. As a user of an iPod touch, and Apple computers, it was very interesting to learn the beginning of the company that developed them.
