Description

De enige geautoriseerde en volledige biografie over Steve Jobs. Walter Isaacson heeft de afgelopen drie jaar exclusieve en unieke gesprekken voerde met Jobs, zijn familie en vrienden, om een beeld van de mens Steve Jobs te krijgen. Maar Isaacson heeft ook gesproken met collega's bij Apple en met zijn concurrenten, om een beeld van de zakenman te krijgen. Wie is de man die de wereld aan zijn voeten kreeg met Apple? Walter Isaacson is de voorzitter van het Aspen Institute. In het verleden was hij onder meer hoofdredacteur van Time Magazine en CEO van CNN. Hij schreef eerder gezaghebbende biografieën van Benjamin Franklin, Henry Kissinger en Albert Einstein.

From Publishers Weekly

19 December 2011 – If not the greatest of computer moguls, the late Apple Computer co-founder was certainly the most colorful and charismatic to judge by this compelling biography. Journalist Isaacson (Albert Einstein) had his subject's intimate cooperation but doesn't shy away from Jobs's off-putting traits: the egomania; the shameless theft of ideas; the "reality distortion field" of lies and delusions; the veering between manipulative charm and cold betrayal; the bullying rages, profanity and weeping; the bizarre vegetarian diets that he believed would ward off body odor and cancer (he was tragically wrong on both counts). Isaacson also sees the constructive flip-side of Jobs's flaws, arguing that his crazed perfectionism and sublime sense of design he wanted even his computers' circuit boards to be visually elegant begat brilliant innovations, from the Mac to the iPad, that blended "poetry and processors." The author oversells Jobs as the digital artiste pitting well-crafted, vertically integrated personal computing experiences against the promiscuously licensed, bulk-commodity software profferred by his Microsoft rival Bill Gates. (Gates's acerbic commentary on Jobs's romanticism often steals the page.) Still, Isaacson's exhaustively researched but well-paced, candid and gripping narrative gives us a great warts-and-all portrait of an entrepreneurial spirit and one of the best accounts yet of the human side of the computer biz.
