Steve Jobs: 1955-2011
Originating from the bestselling special-edition tribute Bloomberg Businessweek Steve Jobs 1955-2011, here is Bloomberg Businessweek's biography of a boundary-breaking thinker and endlessly astute businessman. From his birth and adoption by the Jobs family to his days in the California counterculture making games for Atari; from the peak of the insurgency against Microsoft to his forced exile from Apple; from Woody and Buzz to iTunes and the iPad, it's all here, a signature American life as told by our staff of writers and reporters, and the people who knew Jobs best.
Here are first person accounts from business leaders who knew and worked with him, from Marc Andreessen to John Sculley.
Pieces are written by Steve Jurvetson, John Sculley, Sean Wilsey and William Gibson, as well as Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Businessweek reporters and editors Jim Aley, Brad Stone and Peter Burrows.
Eric Schmidt sums up his feeling about Steve Jobs, "He had a level of perception about feelings and emotions that was far beyond anything I've met in my entire life. His legacy will last for many years, through people he's trained and people he's influenced. But what death means is you can't call-you can't call him. It's a loss. I'll miss talking to him."
This insightful and fascinating biography includes an informative timeline, glossary, and over 60 photos, that give insight into his life and times.
