Book Description

Steve Jobs: His Own Words and Wisdom

Remarkable Quotations by Steve Jobs
Founder and CEO of Apple

Selected by the Editors of the Cupertino Silicon Valley Press


EXCERPTS

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they're not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."

"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure -- these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. ... Stay hungry. Stay foolish."


DESCRIPTION

A remarkable collection of quotations by one of the most influential visionaries of our time. Given up for adoption by his biological parents, and never having graduated from university, Steve Jobs subsequently became the most admired businessperson of his generation. A man who invented or revolutionized five major global industries (personal computer, music, film, mobile phone, and tablet computers), Steve Jobs was a brilliant, enigmatic, and flawed individual, whose personal contradictions were often overshadowed by his public persona.

For the first time, his own words have been collected and edited by the Cupertino Silicon Valley Press in a special exclusive Kindle Edition.

It was very spirited and enjoyable reading. His words of wisdom are inspiring for all of us to read.
It's a very quick read and also very interesting. I am sorry his life ended so early since he would have contributed to many more technological advances in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Out of context September 7, 2013
By Heather
While Steve Jobs certainly had strong opinions on a variety of topics, this is just a list of things he said, printed out of context. It would have been much better to know the time frame and the context of what he is being quoted on. Some things the reader can make a good guess on, but others not so much. I didn't love this book. I wouldn't recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and interesting July 22, 2012
Purchased this as an ebook and glad I did. I should start by saying that before reading this book I I knew very little about Steve Jobs so if the facts were skewed in the book or if important parts were left out I would not have a clue. From my perspective however the biography seemed fair and attempted to report Steve Jobs accurately. What a fascinating character he was! This book makes you really appreciate apple products like the iPad that aim using right now to write this review. If only every product designer world put as much passion into products as Steve did. Back to the look however the story moves along nicely and there is enough backstory to understand and learn from without too much uneccesarry information to bore the reader. I have recommended this book to many.

Not a very interesting read alas. The least the compiler could do is tell us WHEN he said something and in what CONTEXT. Read more

It says in the title / description "His own words and wisdom." I guess I didn't read that part as I was expecting something else.
