Description

Based on more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - this is the acclaimed, internationally bestselling biography of the ultimate icon of inventiveness. Walter Isaacson tells the story of the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies,music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. Although Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written, nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.

    What a great descriptive of the man who changed business by putting the customer up front, like no one had done before. Isaacson did a wonderful job of letting us into Steve's ways and to understand the building of a culture the world is going to keep talking and pondering about for many tens of decades to come.

    Incroyable le nombre de domaines que Jobs a pliés à sa volonté de créer des carrefours de l'art et de la technologie. Je le relirai en 2012 car le nombre de personnages et d'intervenants est très grand, et bien des passages méritent d'être annotés. Si votre iDevice devait ne contenir qu'un livre ce serait celui-là encore plus que le guide de l'utilisateur iOS5 (gratuit au téléchargement mais qui n'a rien d'indispensable, preuve s'il en fallait qu'il a réussi à conjuguer l'intuitivité à l'efficacité).

    Biographie truffée d'imprécisions par un type qui ne connaît manifestement pas le domaine de la techno ... C'est embêtant pour parler de Steve Jobs quand même ! C'est dommage parce que c'est le seul auteur à qui Steve Jobs se soit confié sans limite ... Une belle occasion manquée ! Lisez plutôt "Inside Steve's Brain" de Leander Keahney, vous y sentirez un souffle que ce livre n'a pas.
