It's the same treatment given such luminaries as Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln and Christopher Hitchens and offers Jobs's views on life, death, technology and design, among other topics.
Steve Jobs, whose resume twice cites "the vision thing," has given us some truly memorable quotes.
Fortune magazine proclaimed Jobs "the CEO of the decade." Harvard Business Review called him "the world's best-performing CEO." And the Wall Street Journal praised him as a "Person of the Decade."
The longtime CEO of Apple, Inc., which he co-founded in 1976, Steve Jobs stepped down from that role in August 2011, not long before his untimely death on October 5, 2011, bringing an end to one of the greatest, most transformative business careers in history. Over the years, Jobs has given countless interviews to the media, explaining what he calls "the vision thing"--his unmatched ability to envision, and bring to the marketplace, consumer products that people find simply irresistible.
Steve Jobs has made an indelible mark in multiple industries, and several of which he played an enormous role in creating. Consider the mark made by Jobs and Apple in the following fields: personal computers (laptop and desktop), apps (for multiple electronic devices), computer animation (Pixar), music (iTunes), telecommunications (iPhone), personal digital devices (iPod), books (iBook), and, most recently, tablets (iPad). Jobs is the greatest business visionary of this era. He has given us entertainment and productivity tools that fit seamlessly into our personal and professional lives, and transformed the ways in which we work and play.
Drawn from more than three decades of media coverage -print, electronic, and online -this book serves up the best, most thought-provoking insights spoken by Steve Jobs: more than two hundred quotations that are essential reading for everyone who seeks innovative solutions applicable to their business, regardless of size. It's the perfect gift or reference item for everyone interested in this great American original.

"Steve Jobs, who brought the world the iPhone, the iPad, the iPod and so much more, has left a rich history, both of technological innovations and of thoughts about what people want from them. Perhaps it's inevitable that a book about him would be titled I, Steve." Ned Potter, ABCNews.com
PRAISE FOR STEVE JOBS:
"Rarely has a major company and industry been so dominated by a single individual, and so successful. His influence went far beyond the iconic personal computers that were Apple’s principal product for its first 20 years. In the last decade, Apple has redefined the music business through the iPod, the cellphone business through the iPhone and the entertainment and media world through the iPad. Again and again, Mr. Jobs gambled that he knew what the customer would want, and again and again he was right." The New York Times
"CEO of the decade." Fortune magazine
"The world's best-performing CEO." Harvard Business Review
"Person of the Decade." The Wall Street Journal
