Steve Jobs' definitive biography
Steve Jobs' death has shocked the world. After interviewing him on more than forty occasions in the last two years, in addition to a hundred people from his surroundings, family members, friends, adversaries and colleagues, Walter Isaacson presents to us the only biography written with the collaboration of Jobs, the definitive portrait of one of the undisputed icons of our time, whose creativity, energy and enthusiasm for perfection revolutionized six years ago.
Aware that the best way to create value in the twenty-first century is to connect creativity with technology, he founded a company in which impressive leaps in imagination go hand in hand with amazing technological achievements.
Although Jobs collaborated with the book, he did not ask for any control over the content, nor even the right to read it before publication. He did not shy away from any subject and encouraged the people he knew to speak frankly. Jobs speaks with sometimes brutal sincerity about the people he has worked with and against whom he has competed. Likewise, his friends, rivals and colleagues offer an unmitigated vision of the passions, demons, perfectionism, desires, talent, tricks, and obsession with controlling everything that shaped his business vision and the innovative products he managed to create.
His story, therefore, is the portrait of a fascinating life: that of a genius capable of enraging and seducing equal parts.
