“I think different religions are different doors to the same house. Sometimes I think the house exists, and sometimes I don’t. It’s the great mystery.” STEVE JOBS
He was one of the few great minds of our time but my reason for liking him is not the technology or overpriced status symbol mobiles; it is his belief and the way of thinking that makes him great for me.
He single-handedly transformed many industries and not just the technology; he was able to understand what a consumer wants. This book is very detailed when it tells about the life of Steve Jobs, about his thinking, about how he made his coworkers bring the best of themselves to work for him and his company. How everyone was mourning his death except the co-workers and the business world that knew him closely was not and why. The way he made Apple what Apple is now and how he made his name what it is now. His travel to India and what he did to reach the top. This book is not just for Autobiography lovers, it is for all the fans of Steve Jobs and students of business and future bosses also. As a worker on any job or title, this book is going to impact you and I am sure it will make you work hard and better.
From the back cover:
"Based on more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than 100 family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson 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. Isaacson’s portrait touched millions of readers.
At a time when America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, 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."
Some religious people may not like this book due to the religious views of Steve Jobs, which is why I am giving the low score.
