“They both felt fine on the stage; they well understood that their success largely depends on the team,” said Gibney. – So, Steve jobs has surrounded himself with really talented people. But jobs, and brown were also ruthless and extremely ambitious, they appropriated to themselves the merit of the whole team”.
