I, Steve: Steve Jobs in His Own Words
Fortune magazine proclaimed Jobs 'the CEO of the decade'. Harvard Business Review called him 'the world's best-performing CEO'. And the Wall Street Journal praised him as a 'Person of the Decade'.

Job's untimely death on October 5th shocked the world, with many sharing their respect and sympathy on the very instruments that he created. 'I, Steve' is drawn from more than three decades of media coverage - print, electronic, and online - this book serves up the best, most thought-provoking insights spoken by Steve Jobs: more than two hundred quotations that are essential reading for everyone who seeks innovative solutions applicable to their business, regardless of size.
