Description


From a renowned biographer, Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography is an impassioned recount of an intensely creative and passionate entrepreneur whose vision revolutionized the digital world.
Summary Of The Book
Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography was easily one of the most awaited books of 2011. And this came as no surprise as Jobs changed the very wheels that greased the machinery of the adolescent technological industry. Isaacson gets down to the brass tacks of the pioneer, the idealist and the devil in this detailed memoir.
Chronicling Steve Jobs' life meant speaking to everyone involved in his life and due to the pernicious influence he had over such huge enterprises, this meant interviewing a number of people including his competitors, colleagues, friends and family. Jobs himself contributed to this book's elegance by engaging in more than 40 interviews with Isaacson.
At a time when enterprises everywhere were itching for a bite of the giant digital industry, Apple took to a completely different model of engineering creative perfection that pushed the boundaries of technology. Initially a flower child, he was a college dropout who reveled in the counterculture only to leave all of it to start Apple Computers with his friend Steve Wozniak.
Whether it is in exposing the outlandish temper or the callous treatment of loved ones, Isaacson's words haven't failed in mitigating across to the visionary's more fair ideals. In 2004, Steve Jobs approached Walter Isaacson and granted him free access in order to tell the unbiased story of Jobs' legacy. Jobs even asked for no control over the content and waived his right to read the book before it was published.
Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography was released on Oct. 24, 2011 and became a New York Times bestseller. The book was listed among the Best Books of the Year by Time magazine and won the Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year award. The book is being adapted into a film starring Ashton Kutcher in the lead as Steve Jobs.
