La biografia definitiva de Steve Jobs La muerte de Steve Jobs ha conmocionado al mundo. Tras entrevistarlo en mas de cuarenta ocasiones en los ultimos dos anos, ademas de a un centenar de personas de su entorno, familiares, amigos, adversarios y colegas, Walter Isaacson nos presenta la unica biografia escrita con la colaboracion de Jobs, el retrato definitivo de uno de los iconos indiscutibles de nuestro tiempo, cuya creatividad, energia y afan de perfeccionismo revolucionaron seis industrias: la informatica, el cine de animacion, la musica, la telefonia, las tabletas y la edicion digital.Consciente de que la mejor manera de crear valor en el siglo xxi es conectar la creatividad con la tecnologia, fundo una empresa en la que impresionantes saltos de la imaginacion van de la mano de asombrosos logros tecnologicos.Aunque Jobs colaboro con el libro, no pidio ningun control sobre el contenido, ni siquiera el derecho a leerlo antes de la publicacion. No rehuyo ningun tema y animo a la gente que conocia a hablar con franqueza. Jobs habla con sinceridad a veces brutal sobre la gente con la que ha trabajado y contra la que ha competido. De igual modo, sus amigos, rivales y colegas ofrecen una vision sin edulcorar de las pasiones, los demonios, el perfeccionismo, los deseos, el talento, los trucos y la obsesion por controlarlo todo que modelaron su vision empresarial y los innovadores productos que logro crear.Su historia, por tanto, es el retrato de una fascinante vida: la de un genio capaz de enfurecer y seducir a partes iguales. **** Indisputably one of the biggest names in business, Steve Jobs and innovation have become practically synonymous. One of the early pioneers in the world of computers, Jobs is renowned for his work as head of Apple, helping to establish the company as a worldwide technological leader and standard bearer with a devoted consumer base. In this fascinating new book, bestselling biographer Walter Isaacson takes us inside the mind and life of Steve Jobs, touching on everything from his career to his family, friends, colleagues, and enemies. Drawing from over forty interviews, Isaacson s biography is an unquestionably definitive portrait of one of the greatest icons of our age."

Reviews

Isaacson's (Einstein: His Life and Universe) new biography of Steve Jobs (1955-2011) will satisfy the curiosity of all those looking to delve into the nitty-gritty details of the tech titan's life. Though it begins with a traditional sketch of his parents (both biological and adopted) and birth, the book quickly gets down to business: readers see the creation of the Apple I within the first 60 pages. Isaacson's primary focus is on Jobs's professional life, and chapters are often organized around a single product, e.g., the Mac or the iPod. Jobs emerges a man who cares deeply about the wares he sells and the companies he builds, but one who (famously) is all but unbearable for it. Starting his career smelly and shoeless, the eccentric Jobs even at the end of his life eschewed cancer treatment for nine crucial months on behalf of a strict, carrot-juice-heavy diet. Verdict Isaacson has produced a full, detailed account of an influential man's life, but the style never rises above that of a well-graded research paper. As for Jobs, readers will newly admire their iPhones but not the near-sadistic management style that produced them. [See Prepub Alert, 8/26/11.]-Molly McArdle, Library Journal (c) Copyright 2011.

Isaacson's authorized biography of the founder of Apple Computers draws upon 40 interviews with Steve Jobs as well as 100 interviews with Jobs's friends, co-workers, and adversaries. Surprisingly, the notoriously secretive Jobs was the biography's biggest advocate, lobbying Isaacson repeatedly to work on the project. Besides Jobs's personal development, Isaacson also charts the growth of the tech industry in Northern California and the numerous moguls who worked alongside and clashed with Jobs. Dylan Baker's narration is straightforward and precise, and maintains listener interest throughout-even during sections of text that detail the dryer aspects of the industry. Though numerous individuals discuss Jobs, Baker doesn't attempt to differentiate their voices. Still, it's always clear who is speaking, which proves a testament to Baker's abilities as a reader and Isaacson's clarity as a writer. A Simon & Schuster hardcover. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
