Book Description

It’s hard to imagine a better subject than the life and times of Steve Jobs—charismatic and difficult, mysterious and inspiring, with a biography that might have been plucked from Greek myth. In the wake of his death WIRED presents Steve Jobs: Revolutionary, an eBook featuring our best stories about him. The anthology begins with a remembrance by Wired senior writer Steven Levy, who interviewed Jobs many times over the last two decades. We continue with six other stories that track Jobs on his uncanny rise, his dramatic fall, and his spectacular, unlikely return to Apple.

The passing of the Steve Jobs little over a week ago has been a devastating and significant event. It brought home for many of us the magnificent and unique impact that Jobs had on the way we use and think of technology. More than that, we were reminded of the oversize impact on the culture in general that his innovations and business ventures have had. He combined an uncanny acumen for understanding what consumers really wanted, and pushing their own boundaries beyond what they thought possible.

For most of his career Jobs has been the darling of the media, and over the years there have been published countless articles and interviews with him. He especially featured prominently in publications and media outlets that dealt with consumer technology, and in those circles he has always had an almost mythological status. The Wired magazine has covered him during all of its two-decade long existence, and "Steve Jobs, Revolutionary" is a wonderful collection of articles, essays, and interviews that have featured in the Wired, going back to 1996.

In my opinion Wired is the best technology magazine today. It combines the reviews of cutting-edge gadgets and other trendy products with an in-depth analysis of technology trends and other topics that may appeal to the digital generation. They have some of the best tech journalists writing for them, and have consistently maintained the high standards of journalism. Some of the insights that these journalist have provided have been invaluable, as is reflected in the

The articles and analysis in this collection have oftentimes been prescient, and it's very interesting to go over these reflections from what in technology can be termed ancient history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read! April 11, 2012
By SHG

While I rarely read this type of "business" book, I can unequivalently say that this book was the best of this sort I have ever read! It was amazing to learn about Steven Jobs in a personal way, versus all that we have seen in the press about his business life. Much of what I read was not complimentary, and much actually showed how very odd he really was, but it all combined to make him one of the most fascinating business people of our generation. Many companies would be much better off by following his business tenents. If you want to learn how a strong devotion to a clear vision can benefit your company, this is a great book to read. Jobs was a world changer, and this book showed how it all came about. The early years were particularly interesting, as he was not the technical wiz kid behind the evolution of a technology company, rather he was the "big picture" person who surrounded himself with very smart people. It was also very interesting to see how he changed his management style over the years as he grew up and matured - and that let him grow Apple into the company it is today. This was a hard book to put down!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a read June 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good read to assist a person to get up to date on current technology by helping to fill in gaps in background. A review of history coupled with a look at what seems to be developing as the future of computing for all of us: using the cloud to make computing integrated ever more into our "natural" style of civilization, at least in developed countries.

4.0 out of 5 stars An intersting read May 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is a digest with several authors' insights.

This is interesting overall. It is mainly a positive review of him. He did a lot to improve technology and the lives of his users. It does not really explore all of his character and life very thoroughly. If you are looking for a biography this may not be right for you. As the title suggests it is about his accomplishments and style of winning.

3.0 out of 5 stars A pretty decent recount of some facts about Steve Jobs December 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In my opinion some articles are better than others, although we must also consider that almost all were written before or while recounting the facts, which necessarily involves a different point of view, than we have today, with all the facts on hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get to Know the Man himself. November 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was very interesting to learn things you didn't know about Steve Jobs, normally the hip of the media covers a lot from people like Steve, but certainly the book goes over little details never covered by the media. Loved the book.
