Steve Jobs – By Walter Issacson

The book is written and made after taking information and instants from around 40 interviews with Steve Jobs, and hundreds with his relatives, family members, friends and colleagues etc. Walter Issacson compiled everything from the 6 various industries and the involvement of Steve Jobs in them: 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 book is available for Pre-order for the price of $17.88 hardcover, or the Kindle version for $11.99.
