Walter Isaacson

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.

Quotations by Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs: His Own Words and WisdomRemarkable Quotations by Steve JobsFounder and CEO of AppleSelected by the Editors of the Cupertino Silicon Valley PressEXCERPTS"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they're not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do." "Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure -- these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. ... Stay hungry. Stay foolish."DESCRIPTIONA remarkable collection of quotations by one of the most influential visionaries of our time. Given up for adoption by his biological parents, and never having graduated from university, Steve Jobs subsequently became the most admired businessperson of his generation. A man who invented or revolutionized five major global industries (personal computer, music, film, mobile phone, and tablet computers), Steve Jobs was a brilliant, enigmatic, and flawed individual, whose personal contradictions were often overshadowed by his public persona.For the first time, his own words have been collected and edited by the Cupertino Silicon Valley Press in a special exclusive Kindle Edition.TABLE OF CONTENTSABILITY TO CHANGEACCEPTANCEADJUSTING WITH DIFFICULTIESADOBE FLASH MISTAKEANDROIDANTI-PORN APPSAPPLE INNOVATIONAPPLE LEGACYAPPLE SUPREMACYAPPLE'S BUSINESS STRATEGIESAPPLE'S DOWNFALLAPPRECIATIONAPPRECIATION OF LIFEBEING THE BESTBEING FRANKBEING UBIQUITOUSBEST FOR APPLEBETTER EXPERIENCEBORROWING IDEASBUILDING THE BESTBUSINESS IDEASBUSINESS SUCCESS IDEASBUSINESS TRANSITIONSBUYING MUSICCALLIGRAPHYCHALLENGE TO MICROSOFTCHANGECOMMUNICATING WITH FEELINGCOMPETITIONCOMPUTER AS SERVANT, GUIDE, AND AGENTCOMPUTER EFFICIENCYCOMPUTER LITERACYCOMPUTERSCONFIDENCE IN APPLE AS A COMPANYCONSUMERS AS THE USERCONTENTMENT AND ADVENTURECOOPERATIONCOURAGECREATING SOFTWARECREATIVITYCUSTOMER SATISFACTIONDEATHDESIGNING PRODUCTSDESKTOP METAPHORDETERMINATIONDISCIPLINEDISNEY'S SEQUELSDOING GREAT WORKDOING SOMETHING INSANELY GREATDROPPING OUTEDUCATIONEFFICIENCY THROUGH PROCESSEMPLOYMENTENCOURAGEMENTENTHUSIASMEXCELLENCEEXPOSUREFAITH IN PEOPLEFAITHFAMILY RELATIONSHIPFEDEX PACKAGE-TRACKING SYSTEMFOCUSFOLLOWING YOUR INSTINCTSFRIENDSHIPFUTURE PRODUCTSGETTING OLDGLOBAL ISSUESGOOD CONTENTGOOGLE RIVALRYHARD WORKHARDWARE AND SOFTWAREHONESTYHOPEHUMILITYIMACIMPORTANCE OF MUSICINFORMATION REVOLUTIONINNOVATIONINTEGRATIONINTERESTING TELEPHONESINTERNET'S SUPREMACYIPHONE 4 "ANTENNAGATE" CONFERENCE QUOTESIPHONE ACHIEVEMENTIPOD AS SOFTWAREIPOD'S GREATNESSITUNES CREATION RATIONALEKEEPING PRIORITIESLESSONS FROM EXPERIENCELESSONS FROM PIXARLIFE AFTER THE 60'SLIVING WELLLOVE LIFELOVE OF WORKMACINTOSH BEING USER-FRIENDLYMACINTOSH SUPREMACYMACINTOSH WORKFORCEMAKING CALLSMAKING MISTAKESMAN'S BRILLIANCEMARKETINGMERGING OF PC & TVMICROSOFT RIVALRYMOTIVATIONMOVING ONMULTI-TOUCH TECHNOLOGYMUSIC INDUSTRYMUSIC SERVICESMUSICON ADOPTIONMYSTERY OF LIFEON APPLE'S COMEBACKON APPLICATIONSON HIRING PEOPLEON MICROSOFTON NETBOOKSON OBJECTSON TECHNOLOGYON WEBOBJECTSOPPORTUNITYOPTIMISMOS AND HARDWARE COMBINATIONOUTDATED TECHNOLOGYPATRIOTISMPERSEVERANCEAnd Much More!

"Your time is limited... have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."—Steve Jobs From the start, his path was never predictable. Steve Jobs was given up for adoption at birth, dropped out of college after one semester, and at the age of 20, created Apple in his parents' garage with his friend Steve Wozniack. Then came the core and hallmark of his genius - his exacting insistence on perfection, his counterculture life approach, and his level of taste and style that pushed all boundaries. A devoted husband, father, and Buddhist, he battled cancer for over a decade, became the ultimate CEO, and made the world want every product he touched. Critically acclaimed author Karen Blumenthal takes us to the core of this complicated and legendary man while simultaneously exploring the evolution of computers. Framed by Jobs' inspirational Stanford commencement speech, this is the story of the man who changed our world.

Walter Isaacson

La biografía definitiva de Steve Jobs, el fundador de Apple, escrita con su colaboración.Tras más de cuarenta entrevistas con Steve Jobs y con un centenar de personas de su entorno, familiares, amigos, adversarios y colegas, esta es la biografía definitiva de uno de los iconos indiscutibles de nuestro tiempo, del genio cuya creatividad, energía y perfeccionismo revolucionaron seis industrias: informática, películas de animación, música, teléfonos, tabletas y edición digital. Cuando el mundo buscaba cómo construir las bases de una economía digital, Jobs fue un símbolo de la inventiva. Consciente de que la mejor manera de crear valor en el siglo XXI era conectar la creatividad con la tecnología, fundó una empresa en la que impresionantes saltos de la imaginación iban de la mano con asombrosos logros tecnológicos.Aunque Jobs colaboró con el libro, no pidió ningún control sobre el contenido, ni siquiera el derecho a leerlo antes de la publicación. No rehuyó ningún tema y animó a la gente que conocía a hablar con franqueza. «He hecho muchas cosas de las que no me siento orgulloso, como dejar a mi novia embarazada a los 23 años y cómo me comporté entonces, pero no hay ningún cadáver en mi armario que no pueda salir a la luz».Jobs habla con sinceridad, a veces brutal, sobre la gente con la que ha trabajado y contra la que ha competido. De igual modo, sus amigos, rivales y colegas ofrecen una visión sin edulcorar de las pasiones, los demonios, el perfeccionismo, los deseos, el talento, los trucos y la obsesión por controlarlo todo que modelan su visión empresarial y los innovadores productos que logró crear.Jobs podía desesperar a quienes le rodeaban. Pero su personalidad y sus productos han estado siempre interrelacionados, igual que el hardware y el software de Apple. Su historia, por tanto, está llena de lecciones sobre innovación, carácter, liderazgo y valores. La historia de un genio capaz de enfurecer y seducir a partes iguales.Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Brent Schlender

The #1 New York Times bestselling biography of how Steve Jobs became the most visionary CEO in history.   Becoming Steve Jobs breaks down the conventional, one-dimensional view of Steve Jobs that he was half-genius, half-jerk from youth, an irascible and selfish leader who slighted friends and family alike. Becoming Steve Jobs answers the central question about the life and career of the Apple cofounder and CEO: How did a young man so reckless and arrogant that he was exiled from the company he founded become the most effective visionary business leader of our time, ultimately transforming the daily life of billions of people? Drawing on incredible and sometimes exclusive access, Schlender and Tetzeli tell a different story of a real human being who wrestled with his failings and learned to maximize his strengths over time. Their rich, compelling narrative is filled with stories never told before from the people who knew Jobs best, including his family, former inner circle executives, and top people at Apple, Pixar and Disney, most notably Tim Cook, Jony Ive, Eddy Cue, Ed Catmull, John Lasseter, Robert Iger and many others. In addition, Schlender knew Jobs personally for 25 years and draws upon his many interviews with him, on and off the record, in writing the book. He and Tetzeli humanize the man and explain, rather than simply describe, his behavior. Along the way, the book provides rich context about the technology revolution we've all lived through, and the ways in which Jobs changed our world. A rich and revealing account, Becoming Steve Jobs shows us how one of the most colorful and compelling figures of our times was able to combine his unchanging, relentless passion with an evolution in management style to create one of the most valuable and beloved companies on the planet.
