Este livro de Isaacson abarca toda a vida de Jobs privada e p blica incluindo pormenores exclusivos que ser o revelados em primeira m o .

Nascido em e influenciado pelo esp rito da d cada de na Ba a de S Francisco onde o esp rito do flower power e o advento da ind stria inform tica se cruzaram o ent o jovem Jobs embarcou numa s rie de experi ncias contradit rias consumo de LSD pr tica de veganismo e medita o a par do fasc nio pela electr nica e pela tecnologia Com apenas anos Steve Jobs co fundou a Apple na garagem dos seus pais conduziu a empresa a um enorme sucesso foi deposto em e voltou sua lideran a em O seu g nio art stico temperamento vol til e vis o apaixonada levaram cria o de produtos revolucion rios que mudaram o mundo por combinarem arte e tecnologia De esp rito inconformado e perfeccionista Jobs guiava se pelas suas pr prias regras em todas os dom nios da vida .

Este livro conta a mais importante hist ria de empreendedorismo da nossa poca Quando Jobs assumiu a direc o da Apple pela segunda vez em a empresa estava a sete semanas da fal ncia e em pouco tempo ele tornou a a mais valiosa do mundo Ele n o criou apenas produtos revolucion rios mas tamb m uma empresa s lida imbu da do seu ADN e cheia de designers criativos e engenheiros inovadores capazes de levar a cabo a sua vis o .

A ideia de escrever este livro observa Isaacson surgiu h sete anos No in cio do Ver o de eu recebi um telefonema dele Tinha sido simp tico comigo ao longo dos anos com especial intensidade nas alturas em que estava a lan ar um novo produto que queria na capa da revista Time ou ver apresentado na CNN lugares onde eu trabalhava Ligou me porque queria que eu escrevesse a biografia dele Eu tinha publicado recentemente a de Benjamin Franklin e estava a escrever a de Albert Einstein e a minha reac o inicial foi pensar com alguma ironia que ele se via como o natural sucessor daquela sequ ncia Hesitei porque assumi que ele estava no meio de uma carreira que ainda teria muitos altos e baixos Agora n o disse lhe talvez daqui a uma d cada ou duas quando voc se aposentar .

Mas depois apercebi me de que ele me ligara pouco antes de ser operado pela primeira vez a um cancro Ao v lo lutar contra a doen a com uma intensidade incr vel e um espantoso romantismo emocional acabei por perceber que ele era um homem absolutamente cativante e tomei consci ncia de qu o profundamente os seus produtos reflectiam a sua personalidade As suas paix es perfeccionismo dem nios e desejos esp rito art stico temperamento inst vel e obsess o pelo controlo estavam profundamente ligados sua abordagem do neg cio Foi por isso que decidi tentar escrever a sua hist ria de vida como um case study de criatividade revista Time .

Isaacson acrescenta Como se pode constatar Jobs estava certo Ele um digno sucessor de Franklin e Einstein Cada um deles tinha um g nio intuitivo uma imagina o criativa a capacidade de pensar de forma diferente e o tipo de esp rito m gico que s o necess rios para se ser inovador Eles n o eram meramente inteligentes eram imaginativos e criativos requisitos fundamentais para ser bem sucedido no s culo XXI .

Embora Steve Jobs tenha cooperado activamente com este livro ele n o quis ter controlo algum sobre o que estava a ser escrito N o imp s limites e encorajou as pessoas que prestaram depoimentos a falar honestamente Isaacson captou o verdadeiro esp rito de Jobs e conta nesta biografia a hist ria fascinante do mais influente homem de neg cios do nosso tempo by Walter Isaacson, Bernardo Sá Nogueira, Manuel Eugénio Fernandes

By the author of the acclaimed bestsellers i Benjamin Franklin i and i Steve Jobs i this is the definitive biography of Albert Einstein b b br br How did his mind work What made him a genius Isaacson s biography shows how his scientific imagination sprang from the rebellious nature of his personality His fascinating story is a testament to the connection between creativity and freedom br br Based on newly released personal letters of Einstein this book explores how an imaginative impertinent patent clerk a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn t get a teaching job or a doctorate became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom and the universe His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane This led him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free minds free spirits and free individuals br br These traits are just as vital for this new century of globalization in which our success will depend on our creativity as they were for the beginning of the last century when Einstein helped usher in the modern age, Benjamin Franklin is the Founding Father who winks at us An ambitious urban entrepreneur who rose up the social ladder from leather aproned shopkeeper to dining with kings he seems made of flesh rather than of marble In bestselling author Walter Isaacson s vivid and witty full scale biography we discover why Franklin seems to turn to us from history s stage with eyes that twinkle from behind his new fangled spectacles By bringing Franklin to life Isaacson shows how he helped to define both his own time and ours p He was during his year life America s best scientist inventor diplomat writer and business strategist and he was also one of its most practical though not most profound political thinkers He proved by flying a kite that lightning was electricity and he invented a rod to tame it He sought practical ways to make stoves less smoky and commonwealths less corrupt He organized neighborhood constabularies and international alliances local lending libraries and national legislatures He combined two types of lenses to create bifocals and two concepts of representation to foster the nation s federal compromise He was the only man who shaped all the founding documents of America the Albany Plan of Union the Declaration of Independence the treaty of alliance with France the peace treaty with England and the Constitution And he helped invent America s unique style of homespun humor democratic values and philosophical pragmatism p p But the most interesting thing that Franklin invented and continually reinvented was himself America s first great publicist he was in his life and in his writings consciously trying to create a new American archetype In the process he carefully crafted his own persona portrayed it in public and polished it for posterity p p Through it all he trusted the hearts and minds of his fellow leather aprons more than he did those of any inbred elite He saw middle class values as a source of social strength not as something to be derided His guiding principle was a dislike of everything that tended to debase the spirit of the common people Few of his fellow founders felt this comfort with democracy so fully and none so intuitively p p In this colorful and intimate narrative Isaacson provides the full sweep of Franklin s amazing life from his days as a runaway printer to his triumphs as a statesman scientist and Founding Father He chronicles Franklin s tumultuous relationship with his illegitimate son and grandson his practical marriage and his flirtations with the ladies of Paris He also shows how Franklin helped to create the American character and why he has a particular resonance in the twenty first century p, Albert Einstein is synonymous with genius From his remarkable theory of relativity and the famous equation E mc to his concept of a unified field theory no one has contributed as much to science in the last century br br As well as showing how Einstein developed his theories Einstein reveals the man behind the science from his early years and experiments in Germany and his struggle to find work at the Swiss patent office to his marriages and children his role in the development of the atomic bomb and his work for civil rights groups in the United States br br Drawing on new research and personal documents belonging to Einstein only recently made available this book also includes items of rare facsimile memorabilia to show you more than this scientist s groundbreaking theories, From best selling author Walter Isaacson comes the landmark biography of Apple co founder Steve Jobs br br In i Steve Jobs The Exclusive Biography i Isaacson provides an extraordinary account of Jobs professional and personal life Drawn from three years of exclusive and unprecedented interviews Isaacson has conducted with Jobs as well as extensive interviews with Jobs family members and key colleagues from Apple and its competitors i Steve Jobs The Exclusive Biography i is the definitive portrait of the greatest innovator of his generation
