Apart from his Apple history, including being fired, then re-launched, and then returning to Apple, Make Something Beautiful also includes Jobs’ perspective on other important events in his life, which spans his childhood, as well as his time at Pixar and NeXT.
The book opens with Jobs’ quote, which was taken from a 2007 interview. Laurene Powell Jobs Jobs is the author’s introduction. She says, “The best way of understanding a person is listening to them directly. Listening to Steve’s words and writings over his lifetime is the best way to get to know him.
Laurene Powell Jobs states in the introduction that “the best way to understand someone is to listen to them directly.” Listening to Steve’s words and writings over his lifetime is the best way to get to know him.
She continues, “His words in speeches and interviews, as well as emails, offer a glimpse into his thinking.” He was an exceptional thinker.
Powell Jobs writes, “I hope you find the same understanding in these selections that drove him.” “[That] everything we call life was created by people who are no smarter or more capable than us; that the world is not perfect and that we have the power to change it for better.”
The new book page now has “Make Something Wonderful”, which is subtitled “Steve Jobs’ own words.” The ebook is 33MB and equivalent to 194 pages. It’s also free via Apple Books and as downloadable.
