Exhaustive and moving... full of new information
This is the insider's guide to Steve Jobs.
A fascinating reinterpretation of the Steve Jobs story.
The book about Steve Jobs that the world deserves. Smart, accurate, informative, insightful and at times, utterly heartbreaking....Becoming Steve Jobs is going to be an essential reference for decades to come.
BECOMING STEVE JOBS is fantastic. After working with Steve for over 25 years, I feel this book captures with great insight the growth and complexity of a truly extraordinary person. I hope that it will be recognized as the definitive history.
Steve Jobs is the person who most inspires the new generation of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs. In this deeply-researched book, you'll find the most honest portrait of the real Steve Jobs.
Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli render a spectacular service with this book, giving fresh perspective on Steve Jobs' journey from inspiring but immature entrepreneur into an inspired and mature company-builder. Most important, they capture Jobs' resilience, his refusal to capitulate, his restless drive to stay in the game, his voracious appetite to learn-this, far more than genius, is what made him great. Becoming Steve Jobs gets the focus precisely right: not as a success story, but as a growth story. Riveting, insightful, uplifting-read it and learn!
One of the best things Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli do in writing about Jobs is undoing the 'lone genius' myth, and complicating his persona.
Offers a new look into the life of the Apple co-founder... includes a number of interesting anecdotes and perspectives from those who have rarely spoken of their relationships with Jobs over the decades, all tied together by one of the few reporters to have had access to Jobs on a regular basis throughout that time.
What makes their book important is that they contend - persuasively, I believe - that . . . [Jobs] was not the same man in his prime that he had been at the beginning of his career. The callow, impetuous, arrogant youth who co-founded Apple was very different from the mature and thoughtful man who returned to his struggling creation and turned it into a company that made breathtaking products while becoming the dominant technology company of our time.
A business book like no other: written by the journalist who knew Apple founder Steve Jobs best, and containing exclusive new material, this revelatory book will cast an entirely new light on the man behind the world's most successful company.See all Product description

'Becoming Steve Jobs' concerns itself primarily with Steve's 11 years exile or wilderness years and dictates how Steve evolved with each failure and success particularly at Pixar . The details are worth mentioning. Like Steve the authoers have micromanged every detail to perfection indeed. GOD LIVES IN THE DETAILS. TRIFFLES MANKE PERFECTION AND PERFECTION IS NO TRIFFLE.
I recently read "Creativity Inc" by Ed Catmull and he had an entire chapter on Steve - where he said Isaacson's bio was not entirely right. Though Isaacson's book was endorsed by Steve, his friends agree that a lot was left out - especially, the way he changed after NeXT.
This book does a fantastic job of covering Steve during the boring years at NeXT (and Pixar), detailing how those years had an impact on shaping him. The lessons he learned from failure, the ignominy of being sidelined and the pain of watching Apple rot away being run by 'bozos' to eventually turning the tide starting with the success at Pixar and later, in being able to sell NeXT to Apple and reinstate himself over the next few years. What Isaacson's book didn't cover, this book does. And it turns out this phase was pretty important in shaping Steve, helping him handle things much better during his second coming!
Highly recommend this book!
I would also suggest that you read "Creativity Inc". Ed Catmull has a chapter dedicated to Steve that matches the narrative in this book rather than that of Isaacson.
"This Book was New York Times Best-Seller in 2015, Must read by Steve Jobs Fans"
What I didn't liked was Hardcover of this book it seemed rough and had little texture scratches however this book is really good
The need is to understand the juncture at which Apple was founded. Management style and problems in corporations are well understood and presented.
Profoundly Failures of Steve Jobs were very helpful to all of us.
It is insightful book than rest of the books on Steve Jobs.
You should go for hardcover and just enjoy the book.
Author has covered Steve's life in a remarkable way. For all the people who thinks Jobs was just a lucky entrepreneur who just got praised by media as a GOD of computing must read this book and know about all his struggles and the hard time he went through and actually became THE STEVE JOBS.
Item was very well packed and was delivered very quickly. Kudos to the Seller. Keep it up.
I am looking forward to buy other items from this Seller.
