A young adult biography of Apple computer founder Steve Jobs

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap:

Steve Jobs was arguably the most controversial business leader of our

time. Admirers celebrated his farsighted thinking and his unwavering

devotion to making great products. Critics pointed to his notoriously

prickly personality and hard-nosed business tactics. Yet no one could

deny his role as a founding father of the Digital Revolution. From

the first Apple computer in 1976, to the iPad nearly thirty-five years

later, Steve Jobs remained a driving force in electronic innovation. The

unbridled success of the iPhone and iPad were tempered, however, by

his private battle with cancer, an agonizing struggle that he finally lost

in November 2011. Millions of people learned of his untimely death

using the very devices he had helped invent. It was a fitting epitaph for

a man dedicated to integrating technology into everyday life.

From Booklist:

In this gloves-off profile in the Business Builders series, Corrigan depicts Apple’s phoenixlike cofounder as a hard-driving control freak whose uncommon ability to motivate and persuade has repeatedly seen him through multiple product failures and tumultuous business partnerships. Tracing Jobs’ rise from relatively humble origins to billionairedom, Corrigan focuses on his management style and public career—barely mentioning his private life beyond his stout early denial of paternity when his first daughter was born—up to the 2007 introduction of the iPhone and Apple TV. Given the book’s frequently critical tone, concluding remarks about how Jobs “does exemplify many of the qualities necessary to succeed in business, and in life” seem a little disingenuous. Readers would do well to balance out Corrigan’s perspective with other treatments of Jobs’ career, such as Donald B. Lemke’s graphic-novel-style biography, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and the Personal Computer (2007); regardless, this book’s details, insights, and assortment of interesting photographs are likely to pique many readers’ interest. A multimedia resource list concludes. Grades 6-9. --John Peters
