"A new book revealing many of Steve Jobs' most illuminating quotes..." Lance Whitney, CNET
"Steve Jobs, whose resume twice cites 'the vision thing,' has given us some truly memorable quotes." FoxNews.com
"A 160-page collection of quotes from the most iconic product pitchman since P.T. Barnum." Ben Popper, The New York Observer BetaBeat blog
"A much better Jobs product is coming soon. It’ll entertain you for hours, and no it is not a Jobs-branded iPad or anything similarly high-tech. It is, friends, an old-fashioned book!" Hillary Reinsberg, Mogulite
"Inspirational reading pleasure." Courtney Boyd Myers, The Next Web
"The kind of book that you read, think about, and then pass on to a friend or colleague...I learned a lot about Jobs’ thinking process." Allen Stern, CenterNetworks
"A short work to be dipped into for nuggets of business (or law firm) wisdom..." Michael Roach, Law Technology News
"Steve Jobs, who brought the world the iPhone, the iPad, the iPod and so much more, has left a rich history, both of technological innovations and of thoughts about what people want from them. Perhaps it's inevitable that a book about him would be titled I, Steve." Ned Potter, ABCNews.com

Praise for Steve Jobs:
"Rarely has a major company and industry been so dominated by a single individual, and so successful. His influence went far beyond the iconic personal computers that were Apple’s principal product for its first 20 years. In the last decade, Apple has redefined the music business through the iPod, the cellphone business through the iPhone and the entertainment and media world through the iPad. Again and again, Mr. Jobs gambled that he knew what the customer would want, and again and again he was right." The New York Times
"CEO of the decade." Fortune magazine
"The world's best-performing CEO." Harvard Business Review
"Person of the Decade." The Wall Street Journal

Would I recommend it at $7.50? Only for a die-hard Steve Jobs fan. For anyone else, put your money towards the Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs, which I previously bought through Amazon, and is a book worth owning.
I would definitely not read this book with the goal of more deeply understand the man who is Steve Jobs. It is perhaps at best an addendum to the true biography. If you have 5 minute windows of spare time, it is an enjoyable way to fill that given that each paragraph stands on its own and doesn't require any continuity of reading time.
I, Steve being entirely dedicated to Jobs quotes makes a perfect companion piece for that book and I recommend both. I decided on Kindle because I like to highlight great quotes, and because of its compelling price.
It's about 160 pages as a book which equates to about 300 pages on Kindle with one 1 to 3 long quotes per page. In addition to one or two liners they can run to 8 to 10 lines, with extended quotes from diverse sources such as Time Magazine, Apple promotions, Fast Company, Stanford speech, Playboy, Triumph of the Nerds, the Smithsonian, and many others, which if you're like me you probably have not read before, and won't find on a typical quote search.
Here are some examples:
Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles. Bloomberg Businessweek, February 6, 2006.
On the location of Apple stores in high end malls: The real estate was a lot more expensive (but people) didn't gamble with 20 minutes of their time. They only had to gamble with 20 footsteps of their time. CNN Money/Fortune, March 8, 2007.
Slogan First Generation iPod: One thousand songs in your pocket. Apple ad, 2001.
Success: Pixar's seen by a lot of folks as an overnight success, but if you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the sound of other peoples opinions drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. Commencement address Stanford.
Wisdom. I would trade all my technology for an afternoon with Socrates.
Now is the time. If you're like me and many others you'll discover many quotes already highlighted by many others as you Kindle your curiosity. Some of the quotes highlighted by me were not highlighted by others, and some of the quotes highlighted by others were not highlighted by me, and I think you will discover your own favorites.
I think you will find it fascinating, and I hope this was helpful.
