Based on more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - this is the acclaimed, internationally bestselling biography of the ultimate icon of inventiveness. Walter Isaacson tells the story of the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. 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.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Isaacson’s biography of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, a creative entrepreneur of vision and phenomenal drive, was written with his full co-operation, laudable given the ambivalent portrait that emerges. Jobs instinctively realised that creativity allied to technology was the key to achieving swift progress, so he built a company where feats of engineering and imaginative ideas were nurtured in tandem, subsequently revolutionising the industries of personal computing, music and digital publishing, amongst others. But his combative personality and desire for control could prove alienating for some and it is to Jobs’ considerable credit that he wanted such a frank account of his life published.
