Walter Isaacson weaves a full and often revealing tale that brings Steve Jobs to life through interviews with the late Apple visionary and those in his inner circle.* The most anticipated book of the year is available available to buy. And what better Christmas present for all your Mac friends and tech-minded family!
The Guardian says:
At his best, Jobs mimicked the serene demeanour of a Buddhist priest, just as the white or silver gadgets he sold exemplified a style that Isaacson calls “techno-Zen”. He negotiated multimillion dollar deals while walking barefoot through the countryside and bought himself a mansion in which he had to sit cross-legged on the floor because he disapproved of possessions and had theoretical objections to furniture.
But at his worst, as a colleague said, he resembled Rasputin. He screamed that underlings were “fucking dickless assholes” before abruptly firing them, and his vindictive temper worked like a guided missile. During a dispute with Google, he declared that he intended “to go to thermonuclear war on this”.
And this from Huffington Post:
“Steve Jobs” (Simon & Schuster), by Walter Isaacson: “Steve Jobs” takes off the rose-colored glasses that often follow an icon’s untimely death and instead offers something far more valuable: The chronicle of a complex, brash genius who was crazy enough to think he could change the world – and did.
Through unprecedented access to Jobs with more than 40 conversations, including long sessions sitting in the Apple co-founder’s living room, walks around his childhood neighborhood and visits to his company’s secretive headquarters, Isaacson takes the reader on a journey that few have had the opportunity to experience.
The book is the first, and with his Oct. 5 death at age 56, the only authorized biography of the famously private Jobs and by extension, the equally secretive Apple Inc. Through Apple, Jobs helped usher in the personal computer era when he put the Macintosh in the hands of regular people. He changed the course of the music, computer animation and mobile phone industries, and touched countless others with the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad, Pixar and iTunes.
