I’ve been reading the new Steve Jobs Biography. I must say it’s a fascinating book and really a must read for anyone with any interest in tech or business. If you haven’t gotten your copy of the book, I definitely recommend it.
I actually have a hard copy of the book, which I love and recommend because of the pictures. You’ll find yourself flipping through to the pictures and just browsing through the book. I’m just starting the book and have barely gotten through Steve Jobs’ childhood, but I love looking ahead at the pictures in the book. So, if you have the cash to spare, I would suggest picking up a copy of the actual book, which is available from Amazon for $17.88.
However, if you don’t yet have the hardcover version of the book and you don’t need to look at the photos, there’s a way for you to get the Audiobook version of the Steve Jobs biography absolutely free.
