Description

Drawn from more than three decades of media coverage--print, electronic, and online--this tribute serves up the best, most thought-provoking insights ever spoken by Steve Jobs: more than 200 quotations that are essential reading for everyone who seeks innovative solutions and inspirations applicable to their business, regardless of size. Jobs, who passed away on October 5, 2011 at the age of 56, co-founded Apple in 1976. He stepped down from that role in August 2011, bringing an end to one of the greatest, most transformative business careers in history. Over the years, Jobs gave countless interviews to the media, explaining what he called "the vision thing"--his unmatched ability to envision, and successfully bring to the marketplace, consumer products that people find simply irresistible. Jobs made an indelible mark in multiple industries, and played an enormous role in creating others. Consider how Jobs and Apple shaped 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 was the greatest business visionary of our era. I, Steve is the perfect gift or reference item for everyone interested in this great American original.show more

Review quote

"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." --Timothy R. Smith, Washington Post "A new book revealing many of Steve Jobs' most illuminating quotes..." --Lance Whitney, CNET "Steve Jobs, whose resume twice cites 'the vision thing, ' has given us some truly memorable quotes." --FoxNews.com "A 160-page collection of quotes from the most iconic product pitchman since P.T. Barnum." --Ben Popper, The New York Observer BetaBeat blog "A much better Jobs product is coming soon. It'll entertain you for hours, and no -- it is not a Jobs-branded iPad or anything similarly high-tech. It is, friends, an old-fashioned book!" --Hillary Reinsberg, Mogulite "Inspirational reading pleasure." --Courtney Boyd Myers, The Next Web "The kind of book that you read, think about, and then pass on to a friend or colleague...I learned a lot about Jobs' thinking process." --Allen Stern, CenterNetworks "A short work to be dipped into for nuggets of business (or law firm) wisdom..." --Michael Roach, Law Technology News "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 Other Titles in Agate B2's New York Times Best-Selling Series, IN THEIR OWN WORDS "[Impatient Optimist] is like eating salted peanuts: Once you start reading, it's hard to stop." - Anne Fisher, CNN Money "[Boy Billionaire] reveals the intimate thoughts and beliefs of the man who has arguably created one of the world's largest companies...and who is also one of the world's greatest social connectors." - Strategy Driven 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 One of the most insightful, brilliant, successful--and, yes--quotable geniuses in tech history.--Jason O. Gilbert"Huffington Post" (10/06/2011) A much better Jobs product is coming soon. It'll entertain you for hours, and no it is not a Jobs-branded iPad or anything similarly high-tech. It is, friends, an old-fashioned book!--Hillary Reinsberg"Mogulite" (09/20/2011)" 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. --Timothy R. Smith"Washington Post" (10/07/2011)" Inspirational reading pleasure.--Courtney Boyd Myers"The Next Web" (09/20/2011) A 160 page collection of quotes from the most iconic product pitchman since P. T. Barnum.--Ben Popper"The Observer's BetaBeat Blog" (09/20/2011) 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" (09/22/2011) "His experience with Pixar was representative of the same kind of acumen and vision that he showed at Apple," said Doug Seibold, president and publisher of Agate, which will soon release "I, Steve: Steve Jobs in his Own Words." "One of the things that comes up over and over again in 'I, Steve' is his belief that in order to really satisfy what people wanted, you had to look beyond what people were doing right now, and even beyond what people were telling you they wanted, in order to see the next thing."--Daniel Terdiman"CNET News" (10/06/2011) A short work to be dipped into for nuggets of business (or law firm) wisdom.--Michael Roach"Law Technology News" (09/30/2011) The kind of book that you read, think about, and then pass on to a friend or colleague...I learned a lot about Jobs' thinking process.--Allen Stern"CenterNetworks" (10/06/2011) Jobs had an uncanny ability to see what could exist in technology and then create a product that was not only functional and beautiful, but easily accessible for the masses...There is such a strong desire to understand more about Apple's creative genius that one book, I, Steve: Steve Jobs In His Own Words is being rushed to appear this month instead of waiting until its originally scheduled March publication date.--Curt Finch"CIO.com" (10/18/2011) But the kind of book about an individual that I particularly enjoy are those that contain stories, anecdotes, and quotations from a particular individual, and we have just that in I, Steve...anyone looking for insights on one of the most influential minds in, well, mobile and wireless, and a lot more, will find this volume an enjoyable - again, if not inspirational - read.--Craig Mathis"Nearpoints" (10/19/2011) It is a sad day, and one to remember and celebrate the life of one of the most insightful, brilliant, successful--and, yes--quotable geniuses in tech history.--Jason O. Gilbert"Huffington Post" (10/06/2011) The book, which was edited by George Beahm, contains Jobs' thoughts about product design, his $1 annual salary and Apple's popular 'Think, Different' ad campaign. The format, arranged alphabetically by topic, is as simple as the book's premise.--Elizabeth Woyke"Forbes magazine" (10/06/2011) "A new book revealing many of Steve Jobs' most illuminating quotes..."--Lance Whitney"CNET" (10/07/2011) This handy 160-page paperback groups Jobs' quotes by subject and is the kind of book you want to have handy when you need a moment of inspiration.--Mike Cote "Colorado Biz magazine " There have been many books written about Jobs before and after his recent death, however, if you really want to know what made him tick, there is nothing better than to hear from the master himself which is shared with the reader through I, Steve: Steve Jobs In His Own Words. Once in a while in your lifetime you have the opportunity to meet someone that is of such high- energy that you rarely question why he or she was so successful. And after reading dozen's of Job's quotes, I had a good idea as to what made him tick. --Norm Goldman "Bookpleasures.com " "A book consisting entirely of quotes from Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is being sped to market as much as a month ahead of schedule to meet demand following Jobs' Oct. 5 passing. The accelerated schedule mirrors that of other, higher-profile Jobs books also in the works, such as Jobs' official biography by journalist Walter Isaacson....["I, Steve"], which was edited by George Beahm, contains Jobs' thoughts about product design, his $1 annual salary and Apple's popular 'Think, Different' ad campaign.
