Steve Jobs Overview

Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography is the biography of the founder of Apple and one of the most successful and creative business leaders of the 21st century, Steve Jobs. It is written author and CEO of the Aspen Institute, Walter Isaacson. Isaacson has also been the CEO of CNN, the leading news organisation, as well as the editor of TIME magazine. Isaacson has written biographies of Benjamin Franklin, Einstein and others. The book covers Steve Jobs' life from his birth right up to his triumphant return to Apple and the release of several world-beating products like the iPod. This English language hardcover book was published by Little Brown and Company in 2011.

Starting at his birth, Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography charts Jobs' life through his initial years, including his friendship with Steve Wozniak, who would create the Apple I computer, as well as the formation of Apple Computers to sell the Apple I. It then details Jobs' forced resignation from Apple, and his purchase and time spent at the company that became Pixar, one of the leading animation companies in the world. Finally, it covers Jobs' return to Apple as interim CEO, and how Apple would go on to become the most valuable publicly traded company in the world under his leadership.

Walter Isaacson conducted more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs over a space of two years to collect materials for the book. In addition, he also spoke to over one hundred people who associated with Steve Jobs throughout his life, including not just friends, colleagues and family members, but also competitors. Additionally, Steve Jobs did not ask for any editorial control over the book, nor did he want to read it before it was published, instead encouraging people to speak freely about him. Thus, it provides an extensive and unbiased look at one of the most interesting lives.

Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography was a New York Times bestseller and won a number of awards, including being names in TIME Magazine's best books of the year in 2011. The hardcover book has 656 pages and its ISBN 10 is 1408703742 while its ISBN 13 is 9781408703748.

Editorial Reviews Review

Amazon Best Books of the Month, November 2011: It is difficult to read the opening pages of Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs without feeling melancholic. Jobs retired at the end of August and died about six weeks later. Now, just weeks after his death, you can open the book that bears his name and read about his youth, his promise, and his relentless press to succeed. But the initial sadness in starting the book is soon replaced by something else, which is the intensity of the read--mirroring the intensity of Jobs’s focus and vision for his products. Few in history have transformed their time like Steve Jobs, and one could argue that he stands with the Fords, Edisons, and Gutenbergs of the world. This is a timely and complete portrait that pulls no punches and gives insight into a man whose contradictions were in many ways his greatest strength. --Chris Schluep

Book Description

* An extraordinary book which gives us a unique insight into the life and thinking of the man who has single-handedly transformed the way we live today

From the Back Cover

From the author of the bestselling biographies of Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein, this is the exclusive biography of Apple's Steve Jobs, written with his full cooperation.

Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - this book chronicles the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

At a time when societies around the world are trying to build digital-age economies, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the twenty-first-century was to connect creativity with technology, so he built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering.

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 and instead encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. "I've done a lot of things I'm not proud of, such as getting my girlfriend pregnant when I was twenty-three and the way I handled that," he said. "But I don't have any skeletons in my closet that can't be allowed out."

Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. Likewise, his friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, demons, perfectionism, desires, artistry, devilry, and obsession for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.

Jobs could drive those around him to fury and despair. But his personality and products were all interrelated, just as Apple's hardware and software tended to be, as if part of an integrated system. His tale is thus both instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values.

     A must read! 26 September, 2013 On
    I must begin with accepting that I am a big fan. However, this book presented aspects of Steve jobs' personality that I was never aware of. In a contradictory fashion, the biography details the ordinary as well as the extraordinary side of Jobs. I wasn't aware of both.

    On the ordinary side, it offers a multitude of instances when Jobs acted like a prick: when it came to relationships, his colleagues, his daughter, his parents, Wozniak. There are tons of references when Jobs completely changed his mind and never accepted that he had been fighting for the opposite a while back.

    On the extraordinary side, it tells you that Jobs was an artist and had a congenital disease called 'simpliculosis'. Even when admitted in the hospital, he rants at the nurse about how the apparatus can be simplified and how they have got it all wrong. Such anecdotes tell you that he was certainly not like most of us.

    Isaacson does a great job of getting hold of a dynamite like Jobs and presenting his life to us. A must read!

     Lucid and Legit ! Steve as he was! Justice Done ! 3 February, 2012 On
    Before anything. I am a huuuuge Steve Jobs fan but I shall try to be as realistic as possible and not be clouded by my obsession with Jobs.

    Before I started reading the book I was under the Impression that this book would all be about making Steve look like a Demi God about technology and innovation. But I was hoping that I would get an insight about Steve the man and his drawbacks.

    I wasn't disappointed at all. This book gives the insight into Steve as a human being. He wasn't flawless. Infact he was far from being flawless. But despite all his flaws he was uber passionate about technology and future, he was philosophical and he was a thinker and he was an awesome dad, "His only concern in 2009 was to see his son graduate. ".

    Amazing insight into the real Steve.

    Rest In Peace Steve !!

  5.  Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography Review 1 January, 2014 On
    In the event you desire almost any refreshing understanding into your persona connected with former Apple company company BOSS Dorrie Jobs, you won't understand by Walter Isaacson's biography.

    Moreover, in the event you hope which several genuine, non-public Jobs will certainly go up from the webpages to present this then lie on the inconsistent, abusive, vehement handle nut that was this CEO's open identity, you can be disappointed.

    Dorrie Jobs by means of Walter Isaacson
    Which was really Jobs' persona, right here given testament by means of the majority of the individuals whom existed and also caused them through his or her higher education several years, his or her beginning work life, this organization connected with Apple company company, this backwoods several years a great Next and also his or her get back to the 1st company he / she started, many precise chronologically in well-written nevertheless regular Us journalistic prose.

    Isaacson's biography ended up being created from Jobs' behest, however the author demands this Apple company company founder recognized although have zero article handle or even a declare from the posted work. It can be no hagiography, even though, including countless other folks previous to them, it truly is crystal clear perhaps Isaacson succumbed to be able to Jobs' famous charm. The good news is, it doesn't may actually have lacking them connected with his or her journalistic senses, along with the guide not adds to Jobs not brushes around his or her poor behavior. Reality is not distorted.

    Your barefoot BOSS
    Isaacson spares Jobs not any blushes. He or she doesn't prevent Jobs' near-abandonment connected with his or her 1st girl and also the woman's mum, and also his or her attempts to be able to not allow paternity even though a positive DNA analyze. He or she gleefully says the younger Jobs' inadequate personal hygiene : he / she presumed located this vegan life supposed showering ended up being largely unneeded : and also his or her willingness to be able to remain with his grubby, uncovered legs on others' agents.

    Certainly not how the BOSS ended up being previously someone to rose, even though to get a guy relatively not able to empathise along with just about all various other humankind, such as his or her addicts, his or her better half and also his or her youngsters, he / she could possibly be starkly over-emotional from time.

    Dorrie Jobs and also Dorrie Wozniak
    Some sort of beardy wierdy. And Dorrie Wozniak
    Isaacson generally unveils just how often Jobs could broke in to tears, even though not always at the times in his or her life you could possibly count on them to be able to. Legitimate feelings as well as emotive treatment? Isascson doesn't review.

    Maybe Isaacson tensions Jobs' capacity to blub at the fall of the hat so that you can display how the CEO's emotive array prolonged further than fury : an extremely swift mood ended up being considered one of Jobs' hallmarks : and also large delight from adding other folks lower, even though he / she may often stop wasting time to be able to compliment as well.

    Jobs ended up being any persona defined by means of his or her work, not by means of his or her life outside of the businesses he / she produced. There is nothing right here about Jobs' hobbies, just how he / she calm, as well as what exactly he / she enjoyed accomplishing in his or her spare time. Journalistic omission? More inclined it's because Jobs received not one of the points. Their drive for flawlessness from the items he / she ended up being looking to create, as well as other folks were producing for them, ended up being his or her very existence.

    I read this book using audible. Loved the book for the fact that it does not take a stand on Jobs and allows the reader to interpret the different decisions taken by Steve Jobs throughout his life. The narration by Dylan Baker is extremely engaging and was an important past of the reason that keeps you going.

    One of the better books that I have read. I would recommend this book to all young professionals as it may very help form their ideologies about their professional careers.
