Publisher's Summary

Just Who Was Steve Jobs & How Was He Able to Achieve So Much in the Areas of Creativity, Design, Entrepreneurship & Business?

From his adoption when still an infant to becoming the Steve Jobs that we all know; the iconic visionary who played a large part in making Apple the massive success story it is today, in this book, we will take a closer look at the man himself as well as the key lessons we can draw from his life.

Part biography, part motivational manual, we will look at Steve Jobs' story with a strong focus on the keys to his success and the principles that allowed him to become the one-of-a-kind entrepreneur, designer, and creative genius that he was.

In this book you'll learn about:

  • The Importance of Innovating in Order to Stay Ahead
  • Steve Jobs' Take on Dealing with Setbacks
  • Why Jobs Believed in Keeping Things Simple
  • How to Lead By Example & Why We Should Settle for Nothing Less Than the Best
  • Why We Must Have a Strong Purpose in Life
  • Why Catering to What People Need Is the Key
  • Steve Jobs' Take on Living Life to the Fullest
  • The Value in Choosing the Path Less Traveled
  • Memorable & Motivational Quotes
  • Jobs' Most Famous Speech

You will see how, from relatively humble beginnings, Steve Jobs was able to not only co-found a successful business in what was at the time a cutting-edge industry, but also how he was able to play such a huge part in Apple becoming one of the biggest and most successful companies in the history of man. His remarkable and motivational story illustrates that with vision, drive, and determination, we really are able to achieve great things.

Fun and informative

This book was educational and interesting. It was strange to me to read about computers being developed in my own life time. Particularly computers I remember my dad coming home with when I was young.
A quick read, but good. Worth your time.

"Stay hungry, stay foolish."

Knowing almost nothing about Steve Jobs, other than his co founding of the Apple organisation, I sought to remedy this with Steve Gold's brief biography. But this book was so much more. Less than an hour in length, it still was able to impart more personal self help advice on how.to fully live a life than many the or more times it's length. An inspirational essay.

This was a very easy read, in part because of the excellent narration by C.J.McAllister, whose reading was well paced, his voice nicely modulated and the timbre pleasant on the ear. It is also short, just under one hour, so easy to slip into even a busy schedule. I downloaded the audiobook, a freely given, comp!commentary copy, fran Audiobooks Unleased: my thanks to the rights holder for making this book available to anyone requesting it.

Fascinating, well read, short - and free. What could any reader want? Recommended.
