    Description

    From a renowned biographer, Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography is an impassioned recount of an intensely creative and passionate entrepreneur whose vision revolutionized the digital world.

    Summary Of The Book

    Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography was easily one of the most awaited books of 2011. And this came as no surprise as Jobs changed the very wheels that greased the machinery of the adolescent technological industry. Isaacson gets down to the brass tacks of the pioneer, the idealist and the devil in this detailed memoir.

    Chronicling Steve Jobs’ life meant speaking to everyone involved in his life and due to the pernicious influence he had over such huge enterprises, this meant interviewing a number of people including his competitors, colleagues, friends and family. Jobs himself contributed to this book’s elegance by engaging in more than 40 interviews with Isaacson.

    At a time when enterprises everywhere were itching for a bite of the giant digital industry, Apple took to a completely different model of engineering creative perfection that pushed the boundaries of technology. Initially a flower child, he was a college dropout who reveled in the counterculture only to leave all of it to start Apple Computers with his friend Steve Wozniak.

    Whether it is in exposing the outlandish temper or the callous treatment of loved ones, Isaacson’s words haven’t failed in mitigating across to the visionary’s more fair ideals. In 2004, Steve Jobs approached Walter Isaacson and granted him free access in order to tell the unbiased story of Jobs' legacy. Jobs even asked for no control over the content and waived his right to read the book before it was published.

    Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography was released on Oct. 24, 2011 and became a New York Times bestseller. The book was listed among the Best Books of the Year by Time magazine and won the Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year award. The book is being adapted into a film starring Ashton Kutcher in the lead as Steve Jobs.

    He was not perfect. He was not philanthropic. He was erratic in his demeanor. He was pricky. He was many a times rude in his opinion. He was bipolar in his judgements. You were either a genius or a bozo.

    He was all that you would NOT want to be and all that you would really want to be.

    A book that does not pass a judgement. A book that does not eulogize him. A perfect "One more thing..." by the best CEO the world has seen in the recent times.

    A must read !! You got to know why & how the ol...

    Should we write a review?

    Probably not...first of ALL I went so impressed by the cover of the book...it deals with Apple look.Classy,Smart,fresh.As A lauded writer, Walter earned a great reputation already.

    Points:
    1. Smart,brief writing.

    2. The pattern

    3. Isaacson's own unique style

    4. No extra things to expand this book unnecessarily.

    5. The whole book maintained Steve's own style

    A Peek into a Genius's Mind! Read slowly and you will understand the depth of his passion for Perfection!

    What makes Steve Jobs so good? That's one Big reason why I wanted this Book! (Long before Mr. Job's death). You see I have this small magical thing called "iPod" which makes me go bonkers over and over again.... The sexy Android in bag wouldn't have been a reality without iPhone (I don't think Mobile Giants would have even dared to go this BIG with Touch without Apple's giant leap!) and don't even get me started over "Mac n iPad". One common factor in all these is the perfection he never comp...

    Here's to the crazy ones.

    I was looking forward to this book with Harry potter-esque excitement, before I begin this review I think I should mention that I am the kind of person who watches Steve Jobs' keynote addresses repeatedly for FUN! Me and my brother r the kind of people who find his product launches more fun than watching iron man, so I am definitely not as objective as a reviewer should be but still I will do my best.

    The book has three acts, Act one when he started apple in a garage, Act 2 when he was oust...

    Tells a lot, shows little.

    The biography of a man who changed the way the world thought about computers, changed them from industrial devices to an indispensable part of our lives, Walter Isaacson's account of Jobs's life is hallucinatory in parts, and illuminating in others.

    Having been a Steve Jobs fanboy (but not Apple's, since I'm Indian and cheap), large parts of the biography appear heard about to me. Isaacson draws upon large volumes of material from Jobs's legendary MacWorld presentations, and stories from in...

    The MAN

    One of the best i have read. The way Walter wrote about Jobs life right from his birth shows a balance.While reading the book its as if the entire story took place right in front of you. Beautifully written without taking a side.
    Coming to Jobs i can just say that after reading the book it gives me immense pleasure to even say i was there when he was there. The person with the most complicated emotions yet he showed the world what he can do. A visionary who believed he can do anything and has...

    POOR JOKE BY SELLER

    The book is fantastic to say the least as I have ordered it before but I had a rather unpleasant experience when I received it this time.
    I ordered the book "Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography" (Hardcover) (English) by Walter Isaacson but I have received the book "Steve Jobs" (Paperback) (English) by Walter Isaacson from the seller DesiArchies.
    In addition the book I received was draped only in plastic so it was torn from one edge.
    I want what I ordered but the Return option is showing only ...
