The Second Coming of Steve Jobs is an unauthorized biography chronicling the life of Steve Jobs, a co-founder of Apple Inc by Vanity Fair magazine writer Alan Deutschman. It covers his period at NeXT, success at Pixar and his comeback to Apple followed by the introduction of iMac.

In this book you read about the fall and more importantly the second rise of Steve Jobs. Издание: 1. Язык: english. ISBN 13: 9780767904339.

Steve Jobs is a powerful man with a tight grip on his image. The fact that this book was even written is a testament to Deutschman's dedication. I heard that Jobs even leaned on the press to avoid publicizing the book. After the reading the book, I don't even know why he was pushing so hard. Yes, there's some dirt about his love life, but most of the story is generally good news about a hard working guy with a knack for finding great designs.

Based on interviews with scores of people-rivals, colleagues, friends-who have worked with Jobs over the years, The Second Coming of Steve Jobs gets under the hood of this extraordinarily complex man: how and why he almost gave up on his career; the details of his negotiations with Disney's Jeffrey Katzenberg and Michael Eisner, and of the.

My favorite book on Steve Jobs. I have recently read a ton of them while working on a recent project and will probably plow through a bunch more. Unlike other viewers, I just don't see the "flaming" here. It seems any time an author is less than adoring — almost canonizing, really — about Jobs, someone calls foul. Or if they include any personal details, it's criticized as "gossip." It's called "rounding out the character," and really, what a unique character. Yes, the end is rushed and some future assumptions are way off base, but that's part of what makes connecting the dots in hindsight so much fun.

I bought this book because it focused on the fascinating "lost weekend" of Steve Jobs, starting from his ejection from Apple in 1985 to his return 11 years later. While I devoured the book quickly, the entire work has a stench about it - it reeks of a rushed, vindictive flame job. The book falls apart completely at the end, the author rushes so badly. Almost all sources are individuals thrown out of the Kingdom of Steve (people who have failed him in some way or another) with hardly any input from current Apple directors and executives who have worked successfully with Jobs for decades. By the end I found myself questioning every conclusion the author reaches (which was easy considering he predicted defeat and disgrace that never happened) and wondering to myself, "What's the point?" The general tone is that the author doesn't like Jobs but he also doesn't "get" the man either, and neither do many of the author's sources. One former executive of Applecare described Jobs complaining about tech support at Apple as being a bunch of clueless idiots (at which point the executive is removed from the company) and I thought to myself, tech support at most companies are the rudest people I've ever talked to, yet Apple has ranked #1 in that area for 10 years? Maybe Jobs understands something this author doesn't.

If you want juicy tidbits about personal moments with Steve Jobs - then this is a good fast read - if you want any insight into Steve Jobs - this is a even faster read because there isn't any. Don't buy this book if you want any depth - analysis - insight - anything other than personal moments with Steve Jobs.
This biographical thing (let's not say a book) is a mish mash of accounts of Steve Jobs actions and non-action. There is the tyrannical BAD STEVE and the benevolent GOOD STEVE - but then there is the horrible writing of the author and lack of any direction - or any support to the conclusion of the book.
My Positive Note: The one good thing I would have to say about this book is all the history on Pixar and Next that I didn't know about....other than that....stay away and wait until someone comes out with a book that Steve Jobs can at least admit has some interesting - fairly portrayed points about his life or he writes his own book.

It's great to see a different perspective on Jobs. So many books are either too nice to him, or too mean. This one is much more balanced than most, and has testaments from all sorts of people in Steve's life, and covers the bases as well as is possible without Steve participating. The best part is that it really focuses in on a portion of Steve's life that is often ignored in stories about Apple and Steve- NeXT and Pixar.

A good read

I got this book because I've been reading about how leaders have turned around failing companies.
This book was billed, on the back cover and in the sleeves, as a book about Steve Jobs' return to Apple and how he helped rebuild it.

I've come to understand that most of these leaders have undesirable character flaws... and Jobs' flaws have not exactly been made secret over the years. But I'm on page 122, and ALL the author has told me is:

1) Steve Jobs was a rude, creative, self-centered, obnoxious jerk and
2) His NeXT project was bleeding money. In fact, by page 122, NeXT had not sold a single computer.

This book, so far, has been nothing more than an opportunity to show was an awful human Jobs was.
If that was the author's goal, he succeeded...but I wanted to specfically read about his 2 term at Apple and this book has yet to deliver.

I dont plan on finishing it. There are enough other books on the topic I can read instead.

"Avoid"
