Here’s a little something to tide you over until the official Steve Jobs biography is released. The editors of Fortune have compiled a selection of stories about Jobs into an ebook for Kindle called ‘All About Steve’.
The ebook features 17 stories that span over 20 years of Jobs history and detail many different aspects of his career.
The stories lay out in unparalleled detail the career of a man with relentless drive and a single underlying passion—to carry out his vision of how all of us would use technology. Writes managing editor Andy Serwer in the book’s foreward: “In the end he was proved right a billion times over, and his company Apple became one of the most successful enterprises on the planet.” All these stories are the product of deep reporting. In many cases FORTUNE’s writers spent hours interviewing Jobs and delving into his mind. The result is a singular journalistic collection, which will leave you with a comprehensive picture of Steve Jobs and Apple, a picture that is complex in the making yet simple in its triumph.
I’ve read quite a few Fortune stories about Jobs over the years and they have normally been insightful and well researched. This should be a nice collection of stories if you’re interested in who Jobs is and how he has accomplished what he has. The ebook is $8.79 and available now on Amazon.
