    1. The Up side:If you are a Steve Jobs's fan then this book is a must. It gives a good insight on the inside of apple,and how this greater than life figure annoyed most people around him to get apple's product to perfection. A product Czar who worries about most meticulous detail and an entrepreneur who worried only about the consumer experience. A leader who was at times unreasonable, but never forgot to say a word of thank you or show gratitude to everyone who contributed to any of Apple's produc [...]

    2. This is an entertaining book, especially for fans of Apple, but it can also be an frustrating book. At first, it begins to read less like a book on leadership, and more like a memoir of sorts of Elliot's time at Apple. Then it turns into what amounts to unabashed praising of Steve Jobs, Apple, and their products. Even when he offers criticism, he only does so to identify a particular lesson learned that pays off later. It almost feels as if Apple's PR department (or even Jobs himself) vetted thi [...]

    3. I found this book very irritating because it reads like a PR release than a book on leadership lessons.Steve Jobs is hailed as a great leader and wonderful visionary whose vices were either presented as virtues or a weak rationalization was offered to do away with them."Steve was, but he""Granted, but""Sure, but"At one point the author says: "Yes, he could be difficult, but look at the results." (!!!)If you find the warped reality of Apple fanboys to be annoying, then this book is definitely not [...]

    4. صوتیشو گوش کردم، با صدای میکاییل شهرستانی.باید اعتراف کنم که برام جذاب نبود و خیلی قسمتها رو دائم میزدم جلو، خصوصا جاهایی که درباره مدل قطعات کامپیوتری یا درگیری های اپل و مک صحبت میکرد.

    5. Great supplementary book to the Walter Isaacson biography.Pretty short, so doesn't get bogged down with too much details.This book is from the perspective of co-worker / friend Jay Elliot and how he perceived Steve in his various roles in the business.He highlights all the business decisions that he believes made Steve a great leader, and the best innovator.The book does make Steve seem like this almost deity, where as in the biography it was clear that he was a big a-hole as well.If you look ov [...]

    6. The Steve Jobs Way: iLeadership for a New Generation by Jay Elliot was chosen by Soundview Executive Book Summaries as one of the Top 30 Business Books of 2011E SOUNDVIEW REVIEW:Let’s face it, there may be no other single executive whose work has received more attention (more positive attention, at least) than former Apple CEO Steve Jobs. The impact of Jobs’ decision to step down sent shockwaves throughout the tech industry and caused consternation among Apple shareholders as the source of s [...]

    7. It was like reading Sherlock Holmes. Steve Jobs the Sherlock Holmes of Silicon Valley. And of course Jay Elliot as Watson told the reader their adventures at Apple, a very close observation of the way Steve Jobs made the revolutionary devices. Through the stories we can see what Steve's beliefs about how products should be and how he built the products and the team to make that kind of product delivered to customers. I think these are things we can learn from him. Steve had detail observation of [...]

    9. Insightful book. While it's written in a "Tenants of Steve Jobs" fashion, there's some good background/biographical info for those who are more interested in Steve and how he did things at Apple. That would be my only criticism of the book it's kind of "in-between" a biographical recount of Steve's rule at Apple and a self help/tenants book so has some flaws doing both. Because it's not meant to be a straight biography, the story jumps around a bit so if you don't know a bit of the history of Ap [...]

    10. An interesting biography of Steve Job's active adult life as co-founder and later CEO of Apple. I found the descriptions and anecdotes of Steve Job's leadership and management style interesting, but not compelling. Highly successful, highly innovative and inspirational (most of the time), Steve was definitely a genius in his field -- the un-disputed product czar of his lifetime as Jay Eliot puts it. Although I admire his achievements and have bought many of the products he pioneered from idea to [...]

    11. Al principio pensé que el libro sería más de liderazgo que de Steve Jobs, lo bueno es que esta bien balanceado. Contiene bastantes anécdotas muy interesantes y las utiliza como ejemplo para darte "tips" de liderazgo. Lo que no me gustó tanto es que el autor esta traumado con Steve Jobs, no deja de echarle flores en cada párrafo, llega hasta el punto en que al final del libro tiene una carta dirigida a Steve. Pero si ignoras un poco su adoración por el amo y semidios Steve puedes encontrar [...]

    12. How enthralling, captivating and inspirational this reading is; for it had delivered the realistic story behind a Steve Jobs we saw in real life. The way he lived, the way he struggled to gain recognition, and the way he could bring Apple become the most prominent IT company at the moment.Jay Elliot has successfully illustrated another aspect of Steve, an aspect which hadn't been seen before until he disclosed it to readers. Steve Jobs has taught me one thing and one thing alone: No talented, ex [...]

    13. This retelling of Apple and specifically Steve Job from a close associate was very interesting and inspiring. It's a very current book including the introduction of the iPad. I would have like to see heard more about Steve's time with NeXT but I'm guessing the reason for the lack of detail is that Jay Elliot stayed at Apple when Steve founded NeXT and hence had little direct experience with Steve's role and times there.

    14. I have finished this book after reading Steve jobs biography by about 4 months. this book contain valuable information about how did Steve jobs did things at Apple. it is not a biography of Steve jobs but it shows how did he manage Apple and how did he succeeded in building great teams. The best thing i loved about this book is how Steve jobs treated his employees and how he made them feel that Apple is their company and they must give the best for it so that it can change the world.

    15. Interesting story to a point but after awhile you realize the book is really about the author's "man-love" for Steve Jobs whom he worships in every possible way as many times as possible. Jobs is a great guy but you feel like you have to wash your hands to get the drool off after reading this too long.

    16. Es un buen libro, de lectura amena y con contenido interesante. No es una biografía de Steve sino un "manual" de gestión de equipos y técnicas de RRHH y liderazgo. Muy recomendable.-------------This is a great book. It is easy to be read and its content is really interesting. We will not find here a Steve's biography. This is a Team Leader, leadreship and Human Resources guide. It is a must.

    17. I always thought that autobiographies are the best way to understand a person, but this book actually taught me a third person perspective of working close to a person like Steve Jobs. This book is not just Steve Jobs, this is a story of how Steve made his team and how they made him!All Steve's fans must read this piece.

    18. کتاب خوبی بود، شناخت از روش‌های آدم‌های موفق همیشه برام جذاب بوده، با این که جابز رو میشناختم و خیلی از داستانهایی که تو کتاب گفته میشد رو میدونستم اما جزییات تصمیم‌گیری‌ها و رفتارهای شخصی جابز برام جالب بود.

    19. Overall, worth reading (or listening to, as I did), but I expected more. Clearly, the author was close to Steve Jobs, but I would have liked more stories. He painted a less-than-complete picture of the iconic leader. The lessons were repetitive, and not particularly actionable.

    20. This is a really good book if you can filter out all of Jay's hero worship of Steve! Despite all of that, I found this book very enlightening.

    21. I thoroughly enjoyed this book which is written by a colleague and mentor of Steve Jobs. The narrator was very good-nice even tone. I didn't know much about Jobs' rise in the digital arena; we're all familiar enough with the huge success of the Apple brand; the ipod, the iphone, the ipad, and Macs. This book has excellent historical information as well as good advice about start ups and how to be successful. Steve Jobs was similar in character to other highly successful CEOs and founders of tech [...]

    22. This is a book that helps you understand the thinking and strategies of Steve Jobs in developping, perfectionning, and selling Apple products and in managing his company. It is not only interesting in a way that you take a look into the core strategies and approaches of one of the most impressive company in the world but also because you understand what genie Steve Jobs with his groundbreaking methods was. I give the book only 4* because some parts were quite difficult to understand and one got [...]

    23. I enjoyed this book for the practicability of it. It's gives real advice and amazing insights and tips that are useful even if you are not a leader. It however written in a slightly poor manner. The text could be either more flourished or more systematic however it lies in a strange in between.Also I feel like it overly glorifies Steve Jobs. It makes into a Martin Luther King of tecnology that changed the world. I mean, don't get me wrong, he was an impressive person who made some amazing change [...]

    24. Loy Machedo's Book Review - The Steve Jobs Way: iLeadership for a New Generation by Jay Elliot and William L. SimonThe legend of Steve Jobs and his messianic vision will never pass away - that is a fact I can vouch for. Ever since his death in October 5, 2011, Books, Documentaries, Articles have been written about him. In fact a Movie on Steve Jobs with Ashton Kutcher playing the role of Steve Jobs is going to come out very soon. Such is the fascination the world has towards a man who famously q [...]

    25. Very nice book and I believe all the fans of Steve would love this book. Fantastic perspective from Jay who had first hand experience working with Steve. So much to learn from Steve's traits and his pursuit to changing the world; his perseverance, resilience, charisma, compassion and vision are just so inspiring.

    26. من انتظار داشتم که به صورت منسجم تر روش های مدیریتی و رهبری استیو جابز رو توضیح بده که خب متاسفانه خیلی از این شاخه به اون شاخه پریده بود. نکات جالبی رو بیان کرده بود و برای کسایی که علاقه مند به این تیپ کتابها باشن حتما جذاب‌ه. و صفحات پایانی کتاب، جایی که سخنرانی استیو رو در جش [...]

    27. A brilliant mind always finds is path. It’s not about the way you succeed it’s all about the way you behave after losing a battle. Steve was all about it, fall and get up again and againTruly inspiring

    28. Read for CEU credit for PMI certification. An interesting perspective of Steve Jobs and his non-classic leadership style. Written from the perspective of a sidekick who was with him from nearly the beginning. Gives some insights that other books haven't had.
