Steve Jobs was a pioneer of the personal computer age. This compelling biography describes his life and career as a visionary entrepreneur who helped usher the world into the digital age—in style and comfort. Born in 1955, Jobs grew up tinkering with electronics in the garage with his father. Although he dropped out of college, he would follow his passion for electronics and become well known for founding the computer company Apple. Equally well known for his uncompromising product philosophy, he continued to innovate in the fields of animation, personal electronics, and marketing. Both Jobs and Apple had their share of ups and downs. After an amazing comeback in the 2000s, Jobs was diagnosed with cancer and passed away at the early age of 56 in 2011.

Reviews
Steve Jobs: Visionary Entrepreneur of the Digital Age

“Steve Jobs’ personal idiosyncrasies are almost as legendary as the iconic Apple devices he helped to develop and design. Yet this biography manages to paint a more multidimensional portrait of the technology innovator, beyond the well-known anecdotes about his persona and work ethic. This book captures the complex nature of one of the most formative men of the twenty-first century.” -Booklist, 02/14
