Steve Jobs leaves behind an extraordinary legacy, putting him in a class with America's greatest industrialists. He was the most innovative business leader of our time, the man FORTUNE named CEO of the Decade in 2009.
Now from FORTUNE comes the richly illustrated story of his life at the helm of Apple, based in part on three decades of FORTUNE stories about the cultural icon who revolutionized computing, telephones, movies, music, retailing, and product design. FORTUNE was with him every step of the way, describing 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. In the end he was proved right a billion times over, and his company became one of the most successful enterprises on the planet.
All of these chapters 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 a man who changed the world, a picture that is complex in the making yet simple in its triumph.
