Steve Jobs was an American visionary who immeasurably altered the way the world uses technology. From the Apple II to minimalist iMacs and from the foundation of Pixar to the invention of the iPad, Jobs' products and ideas confounded expectations perpetually redefined markets to make Apple the most successful technology company on the planet.

Inside Steve's Brain is a unique and revealing look at one of the greatest entrepreneurs of the internet age. Part biography, part leadership manual, Kahney's book is a rich and insightful examination of a man who was at once a business pioneer, and a cultural icon.

?Throughout his storied Silicon Valley career, Apple CEO and Pixar Studios founder Steve Jobs has been labeled, among other things, an egomaniac, a Zen Buddhist, a business mastermind, a sociopath and a music mogul. Blogger, author and Wired News editor Kahney, who has chronicled Apple in previous books (The Cult of Mac), attempts to plumb the depths of Jobs's prodigious mind in this engrossing biography. The author devotes much time to the sensational aspects of Jobs? life, including his demeaning and ferocious interactions with employees, his relentless high-mindedness and fanatical attention to detail, clearly demonstrating how his tyrannical and perfectionist impulses have have shaped the award-winning designs and consumer-friendly products that have made Apple a juggernaut. Though it doesn?t penetrate the Mac man's psyche too deeply, and sections on tangential figures like Apple design guru Jonathan Ive and Apple Store visionary Ron Johnson can meander, those searching for a telli

    I was about to buy this book based on Robert Morris's oustanding review __ but then I happened to click on the Comments and all was revealed. Morris appears to be a professional reviewer, presumeably paid by the publishers. At the time of writing he has 854 reviews, most of them extremely lengthy and detailed, and almost every one is '5 Stars'. I note that he started in Sept 2005 and managed to review 28 products in his first 2 days. Hmmm.

    There are many, enthralling tales of Jobs influence on the last three decades from Young and Simon's ICon: Steve Jobs, the Greatest Second Act in the History of Business to Truimph of Nerds, Vol. 1-3 [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] and Pirates of Silicon Valley [DVD] [1999] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] but while these try to entertain with versions of the "what" none really look at the underlying "why" except in the role of closet psychologists.Leander Kahney look beneath the surface and takes the opportunity here to study how Steve Job's specific actions were necessary to create the outcomes that have driven personal computing forward in the late 20th century and created whole new families of products and solutions since. The very characteristics that have formed the basis of the tabloid or populist approach to Jobs are analysed by Kahney on a chapter by chapter basis, with titles like Focus, Despotism, Perfectionism, Elitism - each carefully analysing - even deconstructing - the origins and purposes of these facets and then building them up to form a more complete understanding of the whole.This book is enhanced by reading it with Woz's chapter in Founders at Work : Stories of Startups' Early Days: Stories of Startups' Early Days (Recipes: a Problem-Solution Ap)and The Inmates are Running the Asylum: Why High-tech Products Drive Us Crazy and How to Restore the Sanity to hand to help the reader understand Job's contribution to Apple and the continual battle that he has faced to lead the creation of the products we associate with him.Altogether, first class journalism and highly recommended.
