  • Resumen completo del libro "Steve Jobs: La Biografía exclusiva" por Walter Isaacson.
    Steve Jobs fue un visionario y un genio. Si decidía que algo debía realizarse, entonces luchaba para asegurarse que sucediera.
    Durante toda su carrera, vivió y trabajó constantemente en una intersección entre la tecnología y el arte. Con su ingenio, franqueza y una habilidad única para vender y convencer, llevó a los integrantes de su equipo a superarse a sí mismos. Ellos quizá no se percataron al momento, pero con el tiempo, lo amaron por ello. A través de su persistente intensidad, alcanzó su sueño: cambiar el curso de la historia.
    Él creía que las reglas no le aplicaban pues era especial, pero al final marcó la industria de la computación con su sistema completamente integrado, la industria musical con iTunes y el iPod, los medios de comunicación con el iPad, las películas animadas con Pixar y tres generaciones con su visión del futuro.
    En contraposición a sus rivales, él siempre votó por un sistema integrado todo-en-uno en vez de uno abierto. Él insistió en controlar todo, desde la manufactura hasta las ventas.
    Jobs era obsesivo e un incesante loco del control. A pesar de todo, cuando le solicitó a Walter Isaacson escribir su biografía, fue muy claro en manifestar que no supervisaría o leería siquiera alguna parte antes de que fuera publicada, esto era una paradoja a su personalidad. El explicó de forma conmovedora y fiel a su naturaleza brutalmente honesta, que quería que sus hijos lo conocieran, lo entendieran, aún a través de la parte joven de su juventud en la que él no estuvo presente. Tal vez tomó esta decisión para que él (indirectamente) compartiera con el mundo el por qué de su actuar.

  • Dieses E-Book bietet Ihnen eine Zusammenfassung des Buches "Steve Jobs: Die autorisierte Biografie des Apple-Gründers" von Walter Isaacson.
    Steve Jobs war ein Visionär und ein Genie. Wenn er eine Entscheidung traf, setzte er alles daran diese in die Tat umzusetzen.
    Während seiner kompletten Laufbahn arbeitet und lebt er an der Schnittstelle zwischen Technologie und Kunst. Mit seinem Witz, seiner Unverblühmtheit und seiner einzigartigen Fähigkeit zu verkaufen und zu überzeugen, brachte er sein Team dazu, über die eigenen Grenzen hinaus zu gehen. Vielleicht haben wir diese Fähigkeit nicht sofort erkannt, sein Team wird ihn jedoch rechtzeitig dafür zu schätzen wissen. Diese Stärke ermglichte ihm es seinen Traum zu erfüllen: den Lauf der Geschichte grundsätzlich zu beeinflussen.
    Durch seine Außergewhnlichkeit glaubte er daran, dass die Spielregeln nicht für Ihn gelten und letztendlich veränderte er die Computer Industrie mit seinen vllig vernetzten Systemen; die Musik Industrie mit iTunes und iPod, die Internet Medien durch das iPad, Animationsfilme durch Pixar sowie drei Generationen mit seinen Visionen für die Zukunft.
    Im Gegensatz zu seinen Konkurrenten präferierte Jobs immer All-in-one" Système gegenüber offenen Systemen. Dabei bestand er darauf über alles Kontrolle zu bewahren, angefangen von der Herstellung bis zum Verkauf.
    Jobs war ein zwanghafter und beständiger Kontroll-freak. Dennoch war ihm klar, dass er die Arbeit von Walter Isaacson vor der Herausgabe weder beaufsichtigen noch lesen konnte. Dies war in Konflikt zu seinem Charakter. Er erklärte auf beeindruckende Weise und mit seiner grausamen Ehrlichkeit, dass seine Kinder Ihn kennen und verstehen sollen da er in ihren jungen Jahren nicht immer für sie da sein konnte. Vielleicht entschied er sich auch dafür um der Welt auf indirektem Weg seine Entscheidungen zu erklären.
