Steve Jobs : the exclusive biography

FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BESTSELLING BIOGRAPHIES OF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN AND ALBERT EINSTEIN, THIS IS THE EXCLUSIVE BIOGRAPHY OF STEVE JOBS. 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'Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster 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 America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, and 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. 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. 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. Driven by demons, Jobs could drive those around him to fury and despair. But his personality and products were interrelated, just as Apple's hardware and software tended to be, as if part of an integrated system. His tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values.

  • "Basandosi su più di quaranta interviste con Steve Jobs in oltre due anni, e su più di cento con i suoi familiari, amici, rivali e colleghi, Walter Isaacson racconta l'avvincente storia del geniale imprenditore la cui passione per la perfezione e il cui carisma feroce hanno rivoluzionato sei settori dell'economia e del business: computer, cinema d'animazione, musica, telefonia, tablet ed editoria digitale. Mentre tutto il mondo sta cercando un modo di sviluppare l'economia dell'era digitale, Jobs spicca come massima icona dell'inventiva e dell'immaginazione, perché ha intuito in anticipo che la chiave per creare valore nel ventunesimo secolo è la combinazione di creatività e tecnologia, e ha costruito un'azienda basata sulla connessione tra geniali salti d'immaginazione e riconosciute invenzioni tecnologiche. Sebbene abbia collaborato attivamente per questo libro, Jobs non ha chiesto nessun controllo sul testo né ha preteso il diritto di leggerlo prima della pubblicazione. Non ha posto nessun filtro, anzi ha incoraggiato i suoi conoscenti, i familiari, gli antagonisti a raccontare onestamente la verità. E lo stesso Steve Jobs parla candidamente, talvolta in maniera brutale, dei colleghi, degli amici e dei nemici, i quali, a loro volta, ne svelano le passioni, il perfezionismo, la maestria, la magia diabolica e l'ossessione per il controllo che hanno caratterizzato il suo approccio al business e i geniali prodotti da lui creati. Ispirato dai suoi demoni, Jobs sarebbe potuto cadere nell'ira e nella disperazione. Ma la sua personalità e i suoi prodotti erano una sola cosa, esattamente come l'hardware e il software di Apple, parti di un sistema integrato."
