The new Steve Jobs biography releases this October on the 24th and I believe it is going to be a huge hit. This new book on the story of Steve Jobs will be the most important book you can read this year, especially if you are an entrepreneur and want to be inspired. Steve Jobs is with out question the greatest innovator of this century and there are endless amounts of inspiring knowledge to be learned from this mans life. One of the greatest stories of success of our time. This is one of those books that I’m going to have to get in hard back. The kindle version will not do. I for one am very inspired by Steve Jobs accomplishments and perseverance and I can not wait to get my hands on this new book. If you have ever been curious about the story behind this legendary innovator then make sure you pick up this biography.
It is also rumored that Sony is in final talks to acquire rights to make a movie based on this book. I for one would love to see that happen.
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.
