The top 10 books every HR specialist should know for HR Day:
1. Walter Isaacson– „Steve Jobs”
Exclusive biography of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, written with his cooperation by Walter Isaacson, author of best-selling biographies of Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein.
Drawing from over 40 conversations with Jobs conducted over two years and interviews with over 100 individuals including family, friends, foes, competitors, and colleagues, Isaacson delivers an engaging story of the life and fiery personality of this visionary entrepreneur, whose passion and perfectionism revolutionized six industries: personal computing, animated films, music, phones, tablets, and digital publishing.
In a world striving to build a digital economy, Jobs remains the most distinctive icon of innovation and imagination shaping reality. Believing that the best way to create value in the 21st century is to integrate creativity with technology, he founded a company where unrestrained vision combined with stunning technological achievements.
Driven by inner demons, Jobs could drive those around him to fury and despair. But his dynamic personality and the products he created were intimately linked, functioning like one integrated organism, just as Apple’s hardware and software layers do. The imaginative story of Jobs shows the importance of creativity, character strength, leadership talent, and commitment to values in life.
