After winning an iPad right before the New Year, I decided to finally give eBooks a good try. Having books on my iPad, especially since I’ve been carrying my iPad with me everywhere I go, has made reading so much easier for me.
I regularly browse Amazon.com for eBooks to add to my rapidly growing digital bookshelf. I’ve had my eye on the book Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson for a while and was excited to see a review this week by Jennifer on our sister site, 5 Minutes for Books.
Steve Jobs is a fantastic biography by Walter Isaacson. He explores the growth of the personal computer industry (and of course the MP3 music player industry, cell phones, tablets and everything that Apple has had a part in) in a way that is interesting and completely readable. I have to make it a 5-Star Read, because I honestly think that everyone will enjoy it….
I’m not a huge Mac fan. My family loves our ipods, but that’s about it. I don’t really care much about the growth of the computer industry or the particular person of Steve Jobs, but this book was riveting, and if you’re at all interested in the changes in our use of technology that have taken place over the last 20 years or so, there will be facts that inform and interest you in this book.
Thanks for the great review, Jennifer!
