Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was a visionary and an inspiration to both tech geeks and luddites worldwide, with his products fusing technology and design in unprecedented ways. But much of the fiercely private businessman’s life was obfuscated by rumor and legend, and a full picture of the man and his astounding legacy has not emerged. Drawing on more than 40 interviews with Jobs himself, critically acclaimed and bestselling Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein biographer Isaacson presents a remarkable new account of Jobs himself. After two years of research, speaking with family members, friends, competitors and colleagues, Isaacson has compiled the story and life of one the most influential people of the modern era.
