Este livro de Isaacson abarca toda a vida de Jobs privada e p blica incluindo pormenores exclusivos que ser o revelados em primeira m o .

Nascido em e influenciado pelo esp rito da d cada de na Ba a de S Francisco onde o esp rito do flower power e o advento da ind stria inform tica se cruzaram o ent o jovem Jobs embarcou numa s rie de experi ncias contradit rias consumo de LSD pr tica de veganismo e medita o a par do fasc nio pela electr nica e pela tecnologia Com apenas anos Steve Jobs co fundou a Apple na garagem dos seus pais conduziu a empresa a um enorme sucesso foi deposto em e voltou sua lideran a em O seu g nio art stico temperamento vol til e vis o apaixonada levaram cria o de produtos revolucion rios que mudaram o mundo por combinarem arte e tecnologia De esp rito inconformado e perfeccionista Jobs guiava se pelas suas pr prias regras em todas os dom nios da vida .

Isaacson comenta Este livro sobre uma vida cheia de altos e baixos e a personalidade ardente e intensa de um empreendedor criativo cuja paix o pela perfei o e vontade f rrea o levaram a revolucionar seis ind strias computadores pessoais filmes de anima o m sica telefones computa o por tablet e edi o digital Pode at falar se de uma s tima ind stria a do com rcio retalhista que Jobs n o revolucionou propriamente mas fez repensar .

Este livro conta a mais importante hist ria de empreendedorismo da nossa poca Quando Jobs assumiu a direc o da Apple pela segunda vez em a empresa estava a sete semanas da fal ncia e em pouco tempo ele tornou a a mais valiosa do mundo Ele n o criou apenas produtos revolucion rios mas tamb m uma empresa s lida imbu da do seu ADN e cheia de designers criativos e engenheiros inovadores capazes de levar a cabo a sua vis o .

A ideia de escrever este livro observa Isaacson surgiu h sete anos No in cio do Ver o de eu recebi um telefonema dele Tinha sido simp tico comigo ao longo dos anos com especial intensidade nas alturas em que estava a lan ar um novo produto que queria na capa da revista Time ou ver apresentado na CNN lugares onde eu trabalhava Ligou me porque queria que eu escrevesse a biografia dele Eu tinha publicado recentemente a de Benjamin Franklin e estava a escrever a de Albert Einstein e a minha reac o inicial foi pensar com alguma ironia que ele se via como o natural sucessor daquela sequ ncia Hesitei porque assumi que ele estava no meio de uma carreira que ainda teria muitos altos e baixos Agora n o disse lhe talvez daqui a uma d cada ou duas quando voc se aposentar .

Mas depois apercebi me de que ele me ligara pouco antes de ser operado pela primeira vez a um cancro Ao v lo lutar contra a doen a com uma intensidade incr vel e um espantoso romantismo emocional acabei por perceber que ele era um homem absolutamente cativante e tomei consci ncia de qu o profundamente os seus produtos reflectiam a sua personalidade As suas paix es perfeccionismo dem nios e desejos esp rito art stico temperamento inst vel e obsess o pelo controlo estavam profundamente ligados sua abordagem do neg cio Foi por isso que decidi tentar escrever a sua hist ria de vida como um case study de criatividade revista Time .

Isaacson acrescenta Como se pode constatar Jobs estava certo Ele um digno sucessor de Franklin e Einstein Cada um deles tinha um g nio intuitivo uma imagina o criativa a capacidade de pensar de forma diferente e o tipo de esp rito m gico que s o necess rios para se ser inovador Eles n o eram meramente inteligentes eram imaginativos e criativos requisitos fundamentais para ser bem sucedido no s culo XXI .

Embora Steve Jobs tenha cooperado activamente com este livro ele n o quis ter controlo algum sobre o que estava a ser escrito N o imp s limites e encorajou as pessoas que prestaram depoimentos a falar honestamente Isaacson captou o verdadeiro esp rito de Jobs e conta nesta biografia a hist ria fascinante do mais influente homem de neg cios do nosso tempo by Walter Isaacson, Bernardo Sá Nogueira, Manuel Eugénio Fernandes

The author of the acclaimed bestsellers i Steve Jobs i i Einstein i and i Benjamin Franklin i brings Leonardo da Vinci to life in this exciting new biography br br Based on thousands of pages from Leonardo s astonishing notebooks and new discoveries about his life and work Walter Isaacson weaves a narrative that connects his art to his science He shows how Leonardo s genius was based on skills we can improve in ourselves such as passionate curiosity careful observation and an imagination so playful that it flirted with fantasy br br He produced the two most famous paintings in history i The Last Supper i and the i Mona Lisa i But in his own mind he was just as much a man of science and technology With a passion that sometimes became obsessive he pursued innovative studies of anatomy fossils birds the heart flying machines botany geology and weaponry His ability to stand at the crossroads of the humanities and the sciences made iconic by his drawing of i Vitruvian Man i made him history s most creative genius br br His creativity like that of other great innovators came from having wide ranging passions He peeled flesh off the faces of cadavers drew the muscles that move the lips and then painted history s most memorable smile He explored the math of optics showed how light rays strike the cornea and produced illusions of changing perspectives in i The Last Supper i Isaacson also describes how Leonardo s lifelong enthusiasm for staging theatrical productions informed his paintings and inventions br br Leonardo s delight at combining diverse passions remains the ultimate recipe for creativity So too does his ease at being a bit of a misfit illegitimate gay vegetarian left handed easily distracted and at times heretical His life should remind us of the importance of instilling both in ourselves and our children not just received knowledge but a willingness to question it to be imaginative and like talented misfits and rebels in any era to think different, Benjamin Franklin is the Founding Father who winks at us An ambitious urban entrepreneur who rose up the social ladder from leather aproned shopkeeper to dining with kings he seems made of flesh rather than of marble In bestselling author Walter Isaacson s vivid and witty full scale biography we discover why Franklin seems to turn to us from history s stage with eyes that twinkle from behind his new fangled spectacles By bringing Franklin to life Isaacson shows how he helped to define both his own time and ours p He was during his year life America s best scientist inventor diplomat writer and business strategist and he was also one of its most practical though not most profound political thinkers He proved by flying a kite that lightning was electricity and he invented a rod to tame it He sought practical ways to make stoves less smoky and commonwealths less corrupt He organized neighborhood constabularies and international alliances local lending libraries and national legislatures He combined two types of lenses to create bifocals and two concepts of representation to foster the nation s federal compromise He was the only man who shaped all the founding documents of America the Albany Plan of Union the Declaration of Independence the treaty of alliance with France the peace treaty with England and the Constitution And he helped invent America s unique style of homespun humor democratic values and philosophical pragmatism p p But the most interesting thing that Franklin invented and continually reinvented was himself America s first great publicist he was in his life and in his writings consciously trying to create a new American archetype In the process he carefully crafted his own persona portrayed it in public and polished it for posterity p p Through it all he trusted the hearts and minds of his fellow leather aprons more than he did those of any inbred elite He saw middle class values as a source of social strength not as something to be derided His guiding principle was a dislike of everything that tended to debase the spirit of the common people Few of his fellow founders felt this comfort with democracy so fully and none so intuitively p p In this colorful and intimate narrative Isaacson provides the full sweep of Franklin s amazing life from his days as a runaway printer to his triumphs as a statesman scientist and Founding Father He chronicles Franklin s tumultuous relationship with his illegitimate son and grandson his practical marriage and his flirtations with the ladies of Paris He also shows how Franklin helped to create the American character and why he has a particular resonance in the twenty first century p, By the time Henry Kissinger was made secretary of state in he had become according to the Gallup Poll the most admired person in America and one of the most unlikely celebrities ever to capture the world s imagination Yet Kissinger was also reviled by large segments of the American public ranging from liberal intellectuals to conservative activists Kissinger explores the relationship between this complex man s personality and the foreign policy he pursued Drawing on extensive interviews with Kissinger as well as other sources including U S presidents and his business clients this first full length biography makes use of many of Kissinger s private papers and classified memos to tell his uniquely American story The result is an intimate narrative filled with surprising revelations that takes this grandly colorful statesman from his childhood as a persecuted Jew in Nazi Germany through his tortured relationship with Richard Nixon to his later years as a globe trotting business consultant, Albert Einstein is synonymous with genius From his remarkable theory of relativity and the famous equation E mc to his concept of a unified field theory no one has contributed as much to science in the last century br br As well as showing how Einstein developed his theories Einstein reveals the man behind the science from his early years and experiments in Germany and his struggle to find work at the Swiss patent office to his marriages and children his role in the development of the atomic bomb and his work for civil rights groups in the United States br br Drawing on new research and personal documents belonging to Einstein only recently made available this book also includes items of rare facsimile memorabilia to show you more than this scientist s groundbreaking theories
