Customer Review

on October 12, 2006
This is an excellent book about a truly interesting and innovative man. It provides real insight into his work, his style and his personality. I had the pleasure of seeing Steve on his speaking tour and I was really impressed by how the book captures his style, tone and spirit. Steve has a real childlike quality to him which shows through alternatively as playfulness, humor, goofiness and innocence. He also has a long history with promoting education and teaching.

Some of the earlier reviews say this shows up as "childish" writing. Quite the contrary, it is this quality that has long given him his strength. His ability to take a challenge others thought impossibly complex and turn it into a simple, elegant reality. At this he was unparalleled.

Some may be upset that he is so plainspoken, but I'm glad the co-author did not try to change Steve's voice. To do so would have done the man a strong disservice, and instead we are left with a fascinating portrait and a compelling read.
