Product Description

Succumbing to cancer a month shy of the publication of this riveting life story, Steven Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. Biographer Walter Isaacson brings to light the searingly intense personality of a singularly creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. With Apple, Jobs built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering. Although he cooperated with this book, Jobs asked for no control over what was written not 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. And, for all time, his tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values. Notes, Index, Illustration Credits. Illus., b&w photographs. 630p.
