To be clear, my opinion is both objective and subjective. I freely
admit I dislike some works that are genius and absolutely love
some that are trashy as hell. That isn’t the case here. This isn’t
a great book I simply didn’t like. This is a bad book.
I was sent an advanced review copy a week ago and it was arduous
to get through it. I don’t have anything against the premise,
gloomy as it may be. No one can deny how important Steve Jobs was
to Apple and the hole his death left in the company and everyone
who worked with him. There’s certainly a case to be made that
Apple post-Steve Jobs is no longer the company that shook the
world with Mac and iPod + iTunes and iPhone. There is a case to be
made that Apple is doomed. Kane just fails to make it. Worse, she
doesn’t even try.
Looking forward to reading my copy.
