We know that the Steve Jobs biography titled simply Steve Jobs is on the way sometime this year. However, those wanting to read a bit about one of the masterminds who helped launch Apple into the successful company that it is now can take a look at this book published by Fortune.
It’s Kindle-only so that means you will either have to have Amazon’s eReader (while on that, check out our piece on Amazon’s recent Kindle announcements) or download the Kindle app (which is available for iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac and PC).
The book consists of a collection of interviews and stories. Here’s a description of the book:
Steve Jobs’ legacy is clear: The most innovative business leader of our time, the man FORTUNE named CEO of the Decade in 2009. Now from the pages of FORTUNE comes an anthology of 17 classic stories spanning the years 1983 to 2011 about the cultural icon who revolutionized computing, telephones, movies, music, retailing, and product design. The stories lay out in unparalleled detail the career of a man with relentless drive and a single underlying passion—to carry out his vision of how all of us would use technology. Writes managing editor Andy Serwer in the book’s foreward: “In the end he was proved right a billion times over, and his company Apple became one of the most successful enterprises on the planet.” All these stories are the product of deep reporting. In many cases FORTUNE’s writers spent hours interviewing Jobs and delving into his mind. The result is a singular journalistic collection, which will leave you with a comprehensive picture of Steve Jobs and Apple, a picture that is complex in the making yet simple in its triumph.
