Too bad the biography is all based off of anecdotal information and a few sources, but it’s the closest thing we have describing how Apple comes up with their products. What are their tales and how do these intersect with the title individual?

This persists later in the book as well. Dec 20, Sean rated it it was ok Shelves: For instance, learning about Jiny philosophy towards design in his early years is great; being reminded, constantly, of how he applies this at Apple in another pages is obnoxious, particularly as it is done frequently. This book paints Sir Jony Ive in a gushingly favorable light, and I do not think this is, objectively, unfair.

No crazy fruititarian diets. There seems to be a gross assumption that the audience knows exactly what Kahney is talking about in multiple situations. Book review This book, by one of Apple’s ad-agency creatives, explores the company’s Steve Jobs-driven philosophy of keeping things simple.

Dec 10, Dariusz Nawojczyk rated it really liked it. It lacks attention to the right kinds of detail – and in a biography about a detail-oriented person like Jony Ive, I would expect a much sharper and well-designed reading experience. Dec 27, Arthur Castro rated it it was amazing. A good enough design is always not a good enough for apple, that made Jony to go miles ahead with the iPhone.

Kahney concludes by asking whether Ive, whose designs have been so influential that they’re now mainstream, can reinvent himself and his ideas now that Tim Cook runs the business. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. But at Apple, it really is an important job.

This book is just badly written, from a mechanical and language standpoint. Jan 03, Alex rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Kahney didn’t suck up to Jobs and his followers, instead he had the guts to reveal the true reformer who was not out there to be seen in the public.

Jony Ive’s life is explored in about 3 chapters. Kahey reading ivf book was, for the most part, an exercise in frustration and exasperation, and left me with very little more kauney what I started with. Steve wanted Jon Ivy to take the mp3 player design to a next level. It was interesting and there’s some cool stories. Yes, Apple is a very important part of Ive’s life; however, there are already plenty of books and publications that discuss Apple, with Ive as an interesting part of the larger picture.

Favorite Quotes from the book: If the book could show me what’s being described, as it is described, I would have a much better understanding and appreciation of these creations. Want to Read saving….

What is new is the ubiquity of the products and the way they have insinuated themselves into every aspect of our lives.

Apple did this with Newton and printers.

I approached this book with an open mind – could Leander Kahney have persuaded the famously private Jony Ive to speak? But Leander Kahney has put a lid on such shit in ‘Jony Ive’. And so, my definition of a biography was set at soaring heights by Isaacson. In fact, it was Brunner who unearthed the talent in Jony by giving him free reigns. Dec 17, David Schwan rated it it was amazing.

It’s kxhney a patch on Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs of course, but that was always likely to be the case. Love what it says about education.
