I Steve - Steve Jobs In His Own...
The New York Times bestselling collection that “offers Jobs’s views on life, death, technology and design, among other topics” (The Washington Post). Drawn from more than three decades of media coverage—print, electronic, and online—this book serves up the best, most thought-provoking insights ever spoken by Steve Jobs: more than two-hundred quotations that are essential reading for everyone who seeks innovative solutions and inspirations applicable to their business, regardless of size. Jobs, the longtime CEO of Apple, Inc., which he co-founded in 1976, stepped down from that role in August 2011, bringing an end to one of the greatest, most transformative business careers in history. Over the years, Jobs has given countless interviews to the media, explaining what he calls “the vision thing”—his unmatched ability to envision, and successfully bring to the marketplace, consumer products that people find simply irresistible. Jobs has made an indelible mark in multiple industries, and played an enormous role in creating others. Consider how Jobs and Apple shaped the following fields: personal computers (laptop and desktop), apps (for multiple electronic devices), computer animation (Pixar), music (iTunes), telecommunications (iPhone), personal digital devices (iPod), books (iBook), and, most recently, tablets (iPad). Jobs is the great business visionary of our era. “A new book revealing many of Steve Jobs’ most illuminating quotes.” —CNET “Steve Jobs, whose resume twice cites ‘the vision thing,’ has given us some truly memorable quotes.” —FoxNews.com “A 160-page collection of quotes from the most iconic product pitchman since P.T.
