Steve Jobs

By Walter Isaacson
Walter Isaacson s enthralling ("The New Yorker") worldwide bestselling biography of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs the inspiration for the movie "Steve Jobs" starring Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels, directed by Danny Boyle with a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin.
Based on more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs conducted over two years as well as interviews with more than 100 family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. Isaacson s portrait touched millions of readers.
At a time when America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the twenty-first century was to connect creativity with technology. He built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering.
Although Jobs cooperated with the author, he asked for no control over what was written. He put nothing off-limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. He himself spoke candidly about the people he worked with and competed against.
His friends, foes, and colleagues offer an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.
His tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values."

The shortlist for the 2012 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award is in, and it is really good. Biographies and economics dominate what FT editor Lionel Barber says is “the strongest list” since the prize launched in 2005. Even though one of my favorite books of the year, Paper Promises: Money, Debt and the New World Order by Philip Coggan didn't make the cut, I think I agree with Mr. Read more

NEWS & OPINION: The Longlist for the 2012 FT/Goldman Sachs Business Book Award

Posted August 10, 2012, 6:20 PM with category of Publishing Industry
Andrew Hill's article yesterday in The Financial Times announcing the longlist for the 2012 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award was entitled A reading list to reflect loss of faith in capitalism. That headline is more than a little hyperbolic. The statement in the article itself that the list "includes an array of titles charting the strengths and weaknesses of the American corporate, economic and financial system" is a bit more accurate, especially if you replace the word "American" with "global.
