Steve Jobs – The man who thought different
I was privileged to receive one of the first published copy of the book “Steve Jobs – The man who thought different” in the UK and having read the original biography which took me ages to read due to the style it was written in, I really liked this book due to the way it gradually built the story and painted a vivid picture of the life of the Steve Jobs,no doubt it is a must read for anyone who is not just curious about the genius but also about the history of Apple Computers Inc as well as technology and gadgets; in fact any aspiring entrepreneur would find this book and the story motivating and encouraging. Below is a little information released with the press release about the writer:
Karen Blumenthal’s comprehensive and compelling biography takes us to the core of this complicated and legendary man, from his adoption and early years through to the pinnacles of his career, his dismissal from his duties at Apple to the graduation where he gave the commencement speech just 6 years before his death. Along the way Karen Blumenthal highlights Steve Jobs’s involvement with Pixar Studios, how Apple became a global brand and the more tyrannical side of this modern genius. Parallel to Steve Jobs’s life, the biography also reveals the history of modern technology’s rise and the key players that led the way. Primarily aimed at the iphone-texting, white-headphone-wearing, itunes-downloading generation, the book will also appeal to anyone who wants a fascinating accessible insight into how one man can lay claim to shaping the digital world we now live in. Karen Blumenthal is a critically acclaimed writer, award-winning author and long-time journalist for the Wall Street Journal. She was inspired to write the biography after working on a Harvard Business School project on Steve Jobs’s management strategy. She is the author of several other non-fiction titles and lives in Dallas, Texas.
