iBooks is offering an exclusive sample of “Becoming Steve Jobs” the soon to be released book about Jobs’ life written by Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli. The book is due to be released on March 24th.
“Becoming Steve Jobs takes on and breaks down the existing myth and stereotypes about Steve Jobs. The conventional, one-dimensional view of Jobs is that he was half-genius, half-jerk from youth, an irascible and selfish leader who slighted friends and family alike. Becoming Steve Jobs answers the central question about the life and career of the Apple cofounder and CEO: How did a young man so reckless and arrogant that he was exiled from the company he founded become the most effective visionary business leader of our time, ultimately transforming the daily life of billions of people?”
The sample includes the prologue where Schlender describes his first ever interview with Steve Jobs, when Jobs was marketing the NeXT computer, as well as the first chapter, which opens with a description of how Jobs reacted at a meeting for the Seva foundation. The full book will contain 17 chapters.
“Becoming Steve Jobs” is available for pre-order in the iBooks Store.
