-Deutschman, in a mere 301 pages, rips a hole in Jobs that can only be compared to the fatal tear in the Hindenburg.-
--Forbes.com
-A fascinating portrait of the Apple Computer founder...A mesmerizing, outstanding read, this book crackles with energy. Some of the passages will make your mouth drop open.-
--Dallas Morning News
-Alan Deutschman's delicious Steve Jobs biography is a psychological profile with a fruit-flavored iMac punch line. The book is a pleasure to read, but not surprisingly, Jobs wishes you wouldn't.-

Synopsis

When Steve Jobs became the acting CEO of Apple Computers, it was hemorrhaging more than a billion dollars a year. His return after twelve years of exile to the company he cofounded completely revitalized Apple. With the revolutionary success of the iMac, it turned a profit of more than six hundred million dollars - one of the biggest turnarounds in business history. Based on interviews with scores of people - rivals, colleagues, friends - who have worked with Jobs over the years, The Second Coming of Steve Jobs presents the most revealing portrait yet of this extraordinarily complex man - How and why he almost gave up on his career; the details of his negotiations with Disney's Jeffrey Katzenberg and Michael Eisner, and the culture clash between Silicon Valley and Hollywood; his methods of leadership, management, creativity and innovation; his friendship and rivalry with Bill Gates - and much more. Now, as Jobs prepares to conquer Hollywood with his enormously successful animation film studio, Pixar, Alan Deutschman brings readers one of the most talked-about business biographies of modern times.
