Reviews

Praise for Agate B2's New York Times Best-Selling Series, IN THEIR OWN WORDS: "[I, Steve] is the same treatment given such luminaries as Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln and Christopher Hitchens and offers Jobs's views on life, death, technology and design, among other topics." -- Timothy R. Smith, The Washington Post "[Impatient Optimist] is like eating salted peanuts: Once you start reading, it's hard to stop." -- Anne Fisher, CNN Money "A new book revealing many of Steve Jobs' most illuminating quotes..." -- Lance Whitney, CNET "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 "[Boy Billionaire] reveals the intimate thoughts and beliefs of the man who has arguably created one of the world's largest companies...and who is also one of the world's greatest social connectors." - Strategy Driven "A short work to be dipped into for nuggets of business (or law firm) wisdom..." -- Michael Roach, Law Technology News
