Description

Based on more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - this is the acclaimed, internationally bestselling biography of the ultimate icon of inventiveness. Walter Isaacson tells the story of the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies,music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. Although Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written, nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.

    Good profile of a man who has always fascinated me. Some parts dragged on and other sections could have been condensed, but overall a pleasant reading experience.

    RAW! Words can’t describe the nature of this book, such an amazing read, have the hardcover as well but love having it with me wherever I go. For anyone who has ever wanted to amount to anything in life, read this. A real eye opener. Would never hesitate to recommend this to anyone, Apple fan or not.

    The author has done a terrific job of making this a raw and honest account of Steve Jobs's life. His triumphs, his failings and everything in between. What an amazing story!
