The book is an excellent recount of some major achievements by a much admired man. Lessons in Leadership though, I don't think so. Perhaps a better title for the book would have been "Ten game changing moves by Steve Jobs".

There are a few nuggets of good information in this short read, but if you truly want to learn about the Leadership style of Steve Jobs purchase the book written by Walter Isaacson. So much can be learned about Leadership, good and bad, by diving into Job's life and this book does not do it justice. I am not really sure I would even classify each of the 10 lessons outlined in this book as being areas of true Leadership.

The premise of this books seems to be that if someone is successful and in a position of power they are a leader. As far as I can tell that is how the author defines leadership but there are literally hundreds of definitions of leadership. In fact Burns distinguished between power wielders, transformational and transactional leadership. This book makes it difficult to see how Jobs was anything more than a power wielder as the relationship between him and his followers is limited to what Jobs knew and apparently told his followers. I am not saying Jobs was not a good leader, just that this book does little in the way of describing actual leadership.

The author talks a lot about what Jobs did and how he thought but rarely how he actually worked with others. The story seems to be that Jobs did and thought everything. Success stemmed from that, not that he led. Perhaps he was a genius but does genius mean leadership? If you are simply telling everyone else what is correct and know it all then is that leadership? Perhaps the grade school kind of leadership where there was one person in front and everyone followed along. The more modern tale of leadership is more complex and has to do with inspiration, engendering teamwork, empowering etc.

The author tells of how Jobs failed to listen to experts in the medical field and how it may have cost him his life. The lesson - apparently to trust your own judgement only in your field. Good leaders will trust others judgments even in their own field apparently Jobs did not but that is not much of a recipe for other leaders. Leaders do not imagine themselves to be the be all and end all in any field and I imagine that Jobs had a lot of help with a lot of good people at Apple.

Short, but accurate, Ten Lessons in Leadership explores the practices of Steve Jobs, the man behind Apple.

Readers can expect to take a bit of what Steve Jobs used in his own business to take them and/or their business to the next level. I personal appreciate the short-cut style mindset Steve had at times and how the book displays how easy it is for ANYONE to adapt this mindset to their own circumstances.

5/5 stars for innovative display into the behind the scenes of a mastermind and how others can become more like him.

A handy distillation of some of the many lessons we can learn from Steve Job's incredible management style, and his views on leading a company. A worthwhile reference that lends itself to frequent refresher visits.

Mistakes... Successes... We all have them. This book simply brings together a collection of quotes regarding the late Steve Jobs and tends to hold him on a huge pedestal, on which, I'm guessing, he'd never place himself. It's a decent read, but not great. If you want to know the man, this is not the book. If you want to encourage your already strong bent to admire, dare I say, worship, this man of many sides and talents, then you'll enjoy every last word. As an admitted Apple fan, I'm critical not because the book is untrue (accurate as far as I would know), but because it is not inventive, not spectacular and not worthy to be considered among the works that depict the mind and motivation of the man we know as Steve Jobs.

I had to talk about Steve Jobs as a leader for one of my business management classes, since I picked this book, and specifically Steve Jobs as my topic of discussion. I liked this "book" because it was very short. Not even sure if you could call it a book because it was so short, but because I ordered it through Kindle, I had no idea just how big or small it was because the pages weren't numbered. It turned out that it was a very short read, but I came to admire Steve Jobs through reading about him in this book. I would recommend it for someone who doesn't have to have a lot of reading material to discuss

This is a very quick read. And I mean, as in the commute in to work on the train. The author included one or two insights that I wasn't aware of, but if you follow business leadership or Jobs, this may come across as cliff notes.
