Ishan Akhouri: ​Steve Jobs Book Review​

steve-jobs

Steve Jobs is a biography/autobiography on Steve Jobs, the founder and former CEO of Apple. This book was written by Walter Isaacson and it was published on October 24 2011.
The plot to this story is simple. A man named Steve Jobs visualizes our future. He sees things that are unique, and makes them reality. It is also about his family and friends who supported him and were at his side, until something dreadful happens to him: He got cancer.
I loved many things about this book, especially when he founded Apple, with few of his friends, like Steve Wozniak (also known as Woz). I also liked the fact that only his daughter Eve can face him since Jobs normally strikes people down with words, but only Eve can withstand it. As it says so in text: “She’s a pistol and has the strongest will of any kid I ever met. It’s like payback.”
The only thing I did not like about the book was the length, and the cuss words. It was really long, and there were some parts than even kids my age should not read. It also has some bad content, besides the bad words. There is a part when Steve’s ex- girlfriend is pregnant, and she has a baby. He was furious and scared, so he rejects the baby, and says that he is not the father.
Overall, I would recommend this book to people 15 and above. Because of all the cusswords, lower-aged individuals should not be reading this book. I didn’t feel comfortable reading the bad language. I would rate this book 6/10.
