Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs

Suggéré par le créateur d’Apple, qui fait face à une maladie redoutable, Steve Jobs, à partir de plus de quarante entretiens menés sur plus de deux ans et d’interviews d’une centaine de membres de sa famille, amis, rivaux, concurrents et collègues, le livre retrace l’incroyable vie et l’extraordinaire personnalité d’un génie, perfectionniste et hyperactif, qui a révolutionné les ordinateurs, les films d’animation, la musique, les téléphones, les tablettes tactiles et l’édition numérique. Steve Jobs est désormais l’icône absolue de l’inventivité. Il a compris qu’associer la créativité à la technologie était devenu essentiel. Steve Jobs a bien sûr collaboré au livre mais n’a demandé aucun droit de regard sur ce qui est écrit, ni même de le lire avant la publication. Il n’a imposé aucune limite, au contraire, il a encouragé son entourage à parler librement. « Il y a beaucoup de choses dont je ne suis pas fier, dit-il, notamment la façon dont, à vingt-trois ans, j’ai géré la situation lorsque ma petite amie est tombée enceinte. Mais je n’ai pas de cadavres dans le placard que j’essaie de cacher. » C’est avec une extrême franchise que Steve Jobs parle des personnes avec qui il a travaillé ou été en concurrence. Il peut profondément exaspérer les gens autour de lui. Ses amis, ennemis et collègues évoquent sans langue de bois ses passions, ses démons, ses désirs, son intransigeance, et son obsession du contrôle qui ont forgé sa vision des affaires et les innovations qui en ont découlé. La personnalité de Steve Jobs et les produits qu’il crée sont étroitement liés, comme les différentes parties d’un système intégré – tous les produits Apple et ses logiciels participent de cette logique. Le parcours de Jobs est exemplaire, un modèle en terme d’innovation, de caractère, de direction d’entreprise et de valeurs.

Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs

Based on more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - this is the acclaimed, internationally bestselling biography of the ultimate icon of inventiveness. Walter Isaacson tells the story of the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: 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.

Becoming Steve Jobs

Becoming Steve Jobs

There have been many books—on a large and small scale—about Steve Jobs, one of the most famous CEOs in history. But this book is different from all the others. Becoming Steve Jobs takes on and breaks down the existing myth and stereotypes about Steve Jobs. The conventional, one-dimensional view of Jobs is that he was half-genius, half-jerk from youth, an irascible and selfish leader who slighted friends and family alike. Becoming Steve Jobs answers the central question about the life and career of the Apple cofounder and CEO: How did a young man so reckless and arrogant that he was exiled from the company he founded become the most effective visionary business leader of our time, ultimately transforming the daily life of billions of people? Drawing on incredible and sometimes exclusive access, Schlender and Tetzeli tell a different story of a real human being who wrestled with his failings and learned to maximize his strengths over time. Their rich, compelling narrative is filled with stories never told before from the people who knew Jobs best, and who decided to open up to the authors, including his family, former inner circle executives, and top people at Apple, Pixar and Disney, most notably Tim Cook, Jony Ive, Eddy Cue, Ed Catmull, John Lasseter, Robert Iger and many others. In addition, Brent knew Jobs personally for 25 years and draws upon his many interviews with him, on and off the record, in writing the book. He and Rick humanize the man and explain, rather than simply describe, his behavior. Along the way, the book provides rich context about the technology revolution we all have lived through, and the ways in which Jobs changed our world. Schlender and Tetzeli make clear that Jobs's astounding success at Apple was far more complicated than simply picking the right products: he became more patient, he learned to trust his inner circle, and discovered the importance of growing the company incrementally rather than only shooting for dazzling game-changing products. A rich and revealing account that will change the way we view Jobs, Becoming Steve Jobs shows us how one of the most colorful and compelling figures of our times was able to combine his unchanging, relentless passion with a more mature management style to create one of the most valuable and beloved companies on the planet.

A riveting biography of the groundbreaking innovator who was a giant in the worlds of computing, music, filmmaking, design, smart phones, and more. A finalist for the YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Award! "Your time is limited. . . . have the courage to follow your heart and intuition." —Steve Jobs From the start, his path was never predictable. Steve Jobs was given up for adoption at birth, dropped out of college after one semester, and at the age of twenty, created Apple in his parents' garage with his friend Steve Wozniack. Then came the core and hallmark of his genius—his exacting moderation for perfection, his counterculture life approach, and his level of taste and style that pushed all boundaries. A devoted husband, father, and Buddhist, he battled cancer for over a decade, became the ultimate CEO, and made the world want every product he touched, from the Macintosh to the iPhone, from iTunes and the iPod to the Macbook. Critically acclaimed author Karen Blumenthal takes us to the core of this complicated and legendary man while simultaneously exploring the evolution of computers. Framed by Jobs' inspirational Stanford commencement speech and illustrated throughout with black and white photos, this is the story of the man who changed our world.
