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, the author 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. Driven by demons, Jobs could drive those around him to fury and despair. But his personality and products were interrelated, just as Apple's hardware and software tended to be, as if part of an integrated system. His tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values. -- From publisher.… (mais)

Jobs is one amazing character... this book is a great history of Steve Jobs that is both enlightening and interesting... One minute he is a complete a-hole, the next minute you understand his intentions, and agree with his methods.... This book also takes you through a history of Apple, from it's beginnings to now, and it's worse days to it's best days... Jobs methods, although questionable and unorthodox, always had a silver-lining... All he wanted was to have the best products available no matter the cost... and he made sure to surround himself with the best people that will produce the best... Definitely a good read, but kind of sounds like a 600 page Apple commercial when you read it... ( )

Like any human being, Steve Jobs is a complex individual, but Isaacson did an admirable job in capturing these complexities. Many og Jobs' character traits are aplorable (such as his tendency towards criticism), but what Isaacson does in large part is to explain why Jobs acted in the way that he did (without actually justifying it). The Steve Jobs management techniques may not have been kind, but they are none the less a driving force that resulted in some of (if not the) most innovative pieces of technology in the modern age.

Fascinating. This is a densely packed biography, which I usually sip like a fine wine, but I consumed it in great gulps. I could not put it down. If you've ever used an iPhone or an iPod or remember the Mac revolution from the 80s, you'll want to read about the birth of these products and the visionary who brought them to light. He shaped a generation. I highly recommend this book. ( )

I was hesitant in the beginning of this book. By the end, I was in tears. Worth a read if you’re curious about Jobs or what it takes to be seen as a creative genius in this day and age.

An insight of Jobs’ that hit me came at the very end when Isaacson included Jobs’ own words on his philosophies. He said that companies lose their edge when they start focusing on revenue and sales. When your Sales team is driving the ship, it’s the beginning of the end for that company. No more innovation. Your product and designer folks shut off because they’re not in charge any more. It’s all about money and no longer about building a great product.

Brilliant. Couldn’t agree more. Let that be the canary in the coal mine if you’re considering if you should stay or go in your current job. ( )

I will have to read it again at some point. I have a long love/hate relationship with Apple - the first computer I saw was an Apple II, and I spent many afternoons playing with them at an Apple Store in Benoni around '80/'81. I had a ZX81 for a day, but the first real computer we owned was an Apple II in 1983, on which I computerized my father's business. I admired Steve Wozniak, because he was an engineer, and I assumed Steve Jobs was just a salesman.

I went from loving Apple for their products to hating their closedness. I always knew more about Apple than anyone I knew or met, but I never had the insight into Apple or Steve Jobs that I have after reading this book. I have a lot of admiration for the genius of Steve Jobs, and although fundamentally we disagree on a lot of things, I can appreciate where he came from and where he wanted to go.

For me, Apple products are like works of art - I appreciate them for what they are, and I think they are 'insanely great' - I just do not want to live with them on a day to day basis, because I have to fit into Steve's image of the world to do that.

However, I am amazed by who he was and what he did! ( )

Steve Jobs dreamed of a legacy that awed people. He wanted to be in the pantheon of great product innovators, indeed surpassing Edwin Land and even his early icons William Hewitt and David Packard. But, Jobs created more than great products. Just as significant was his ability to create great companies with valuable brands. And, he created two of the best of his era: Apple and Pixar.
 
Isaacson’s book is long, dull, often flat-footed, and humorless. It hammers on one nail, incessantly: that Steve Jobs was an awful man, but awful in the service of products people really liked (and eventually bought lots of) and so in the end his awfulness was probably OK. It is not Isaacson’s fault that Jobs from early on had a “admixture of sensitivity and insensitivity, bristliness and detachment,” as Isaacson describes it, or that Jobs abandoned friends, thought almost everyone else was a shithead, showed little interest in his daughters, and made life generally miserable for anyone who had to provide a good or service to him. But it is Isaacson’s fault that the biography is so narrowly focused on one moral theme. The reader is left to judge, with plenty of evidence both ways—and a clear idea of where Isaacson’s sympathies lie—whether Jobs deserves the Artist’s Exemption.

As Walter Isaacson says in this incisive biography, Jobs behaved like a Nietzschean superman, using his will – transmitted through an unblinking stare – as a remote-control device that compelled others to do his bidding.

While Jobs was a vigorous competitor, he also came to view himself as an elder statesman with a responsibility for giving advice to Google’s Page, Facebook Inc. CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other emerging technology executives, according to “Steve Jobs,” an authorized biography by Walter Isaacson and published by CBS Corp. (CBS)’s Simon & Schuster. It goes on sale Oct. 24.

Mr. Isaacson treats “Steve Jobs” as the biography of record, which means that it is a strange book to read so soon after its subject’s death. Some of it is an essential Silicon Valley chronicle, compiling stories well known to tech aficionados but interesting to a broad audience. Some of it is already quaint. Mr. Jobs’s first job was at Atari, and it involved the game Pong. (“If you’re under 30, ask your parents,” Mr. Isaacson writes.) Some, like an account of the release of the iPad 2, is so recent that it is hard to appreciate yet, even if Mr. Isaacson says the device comes to life “like the face of a tickled baby.”
