   My 11 yr old daughter devoured this book
My 11 year old LOVES the book. She also likes the others, but she really loves this one. Its cool that she understands the background behind all the Apple devices she is using, said Gillian Kent, director at the Macworld office. She really embraced the idea that Steve Jobs did not invent any of the technology, but just made them practical, and more importantly, fun to use, she said. Even though he was a recluse, she was amazed at the amount of interesting facts about his life. She talked about it for about three days after reading it.

   A Great Resource for Teaching Resilience
My boys and I read a few pages of a "Who Was" book every night before they go to bed. The series is educational and interesting, teaching my sons and me about important people in our lives, Raymond said. What I love most about these entertaining books is that show my sons the struggles and many failures'successful' people face and how they persist and don't give up on their dreams, Mrs Clinton said.

   Great for project
In the end, he had to do a project for school on an influential inventor. Mr. Jobs chose Stev. over Mr. Powell. The book is well written, easy to comprehend and enjoy, Raymond said. Steve Jobs was a huge influence on my son. Yes, he is an android fan, but as I told him it is good to learn about the competition. Service was fast and exceeded expectations.

   11 year old says 2 thumbs up.
The book was used by my 11 year old grandson as part of his project researching Steve Jobs. The Concise Oxford English Dictionary has all the essential grammar and structure of a good book. This bill was approved unanimously by the House Energy Committee. For more in-depth information, he also read parts of Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs.

   Steve Jobs
I'm not a huge fan of e-books, but this was a good read. It's easy to understand the life of one of the defining figures of the internet age. Overall, I was very impressed with the book. It was amazing to me to know a little closer about Steve Jobs, Paul Allen said. If you want to know more about this rock face, this e-book is for you. It's just that they put it on the back of the car, so it's OK." It was very interesting, and I wanted to read more, Habo said.

   Great story
I already owned this book and lost my copy. Second-grade teacher, Julie E. Smith, said she reordered so she can read the book to her students this year. It's just that we don't have that many left."

   Computer Kids will love this book.
Steve Jobs was a role model to my twin grandsons, who were 9 at the time. Easy reading and goes straight to his accomplishments and other important areas of his life, Morgenthau said.
