Overview

L'esclusiva biografia di Steve Jobs. Basandosi su più di quaranta interviste con Steve Jobs in oltre due anni, e su più di cento con familiari, amici, rivali e colleghi, Walter Isaacson racconta l'avvincente storia del geniale imprenditore la cui passione per la perfezione e il carisma feroce hanno rivoluzionato sei settori dell'economia e del business: computer, film d'animazione, musica, telefoni, tablet ed editoria digitale. Nell'epoca in cui tutto il mondo sta cercando un modo di sviluppare l'economia nell'era digitale, Jobs spicca come icona massima dell'inventiva e dell'immaginazione, perchè ha intuito in anticipo che la chiave per creare valore nel ventunesimo secolo è la combinazione tra creatività e tecnologia e ha costruito un'azienda basata sulla connessione tra geniali salti d'immaginazione e riconosciute invenzioni tecnologiche. Sebbene abbia cooperato attivamente per questo libro, Jobs non ha chiesto nessun controllo sul testo né ha preteso il diritto di leggerlo prima della pubblicazione. Non ha posto nessun filtro, anzi ha incoraggiato i conoscenti, i familiari, gli antagonisti a raccontare la verità onestamente. E lo stesso Steve Jobs parla candidamente, talvolta in maniera brutale, dei colleghi, degli amici e dei nemici, i quali, a loro volta, offrono uno squarcio sulle passioni, sul perfezionismo, sulle ossessioni, sulla maestria, sulla magia diabolica e la tensione per il controllo che hanno caratterizzato il suo approccio al business e i geniali prodotti creati. Guidato dai demoni, Jobs sarebbe potuto cadere nell'ira e nella disperazione. Ma la sua personalità e i prodotti erano una cosa sola, esattamente come gli hardware e i software di Apple, come fossero parti di un sistema integrato. Una storia che ci insegna e allo stesso tempo ci mette in guarda, ricca di lezioni sull'innovazione, il carattere, la leadership e i valori.

Meet the Author

Walter Isaacson
Walter Isaacson, the CEO of the Aspen Institute, has been chairman of CNN and the managing editor of Time magazine. He is the author of Einstein: His Life and Universe; Benjamin Franklin: An American Life; and Kissinger: A Biography, and the coauthor of The Wise Men: Six Friends and the World They Made. He lives in Washington, D.C., with his wife and daughter.

Biography

Rhodes Scholar, historian, and bestselling author Walter Isaacson began his distinguished career as a journalist -- first for London's Sunday Times, then for The Times-Picayune/States-Item, published in his hometown of New Orleans. He joined Time magazine in 1978, working his way up from political correspondent to managing editor in a little less than two decades. He served for two years as chairman and CEO of the cable TV news network CNN; then, in 2003, he became president of the Aspen Institute, an international nonprofit organization "dedicated to fostering enlightened leadership and open-minded dialogue." In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, he was appointed vice-chairman of the Louisiana Recovery Authority, and he serves on a number of policy-making boards and councils.

In literary circles, Isaacson is best known as the writer of magisterial biographies, scholarly and meticulously researched, yet immensely entertaining. His first book, however, was a collaborative effort. Co-written with award-winning journalist Evan Thomas, and published in 1986, The Wise Men: Six Friends and the World They Made explores the lives of six men who shaped government and public policy in the years following WWII. Examining an era too recent to be called history and too distant to qualify as current affairs, the book received mixed reviews but was universally praised for its ambitious scope and elegant style.

Isaacson's subsequent biographies, all solo efforts (and all critically acclaimed), have chronicled the lives of such disparate figures as Henry Kissinger, Benjamin Franklin, and Albert Einstein. He explains what has drawn him to such widely divergent subjects -- men, who on the surface would appear to have very little in common: "I like writing about people with interesting minds. I try to explore the various aspects of intelligence: common sense, wisdom, creativity, imagination, mental processing power, emotional understanding, and moral values. Which of these traits are the most important? How do they make someone an influential or significant or good person?"
