De jovem arrogante e sem limites a um dos líderes mais eficientes e emblemáticos de nosso pace. Como Steve Jobs virou Steve Jobs lança luz sobre uma das maiores realizações do cofundador e CEO da Apple: reinventar-se como o gestor que não só salvaria a Apple do fracasso, mas a elevaria a patamares jamais pensados.

O êxito assombroso de Jobs em criar os produtos certos — iMac, iPod, iPhone e iPad — teve como aliado em seus últimos anos de vida o foco no aprimoramento da empresa. E é esse estilo de gerenciamento maduro, combinado à inerente paixão irrefreável de Jobs, que, segundo os autores, deu origem a uma empresa única, cuja identidade até hoje se confunde com a de seu criador.

Uma obra inteligente e bem embasada que investiga a evolução de Jobs não só como empreendedor, mas como figura humana, mostrando que a imagem do jovem impetuoso, metade genial, metade detestável, que acabou se tornando o senso comum sobre Jobs, é apenas parte de sua marcante biografia.

uma pessoa realmente extraordinária. Espero que seja reconhecido como
o livro definitivo sobre Steve Jobs.”Ed Catmull, presidente da Walt Disney e da Pixar Animation Studios

“O jovem inexperiente, arrogante e impetuoso que fundou a Apple period bem diferente do homem maduro e perspicaz que voltou à criação decadente e a transformou na empresa responsável por produtos arrebatadores

O difundido retrato da suposta cordialidade brasileira, ilustrada pelos cenários carnavalescos ou pelo futebol, sistematicamente oculta a violência, latente ou explícita, do preconceito, da exclusão e da repressão sociais. A eficiência com que as elites ocultam essa face brutal de nossa sociedade exige um trabalho de rastreamento, de descobrimento de pistas que revelem o autoritarismo subjacente e forneçam uma interpretação mais justa. Os ensaios que compreendem este livro têm por objetivo justamente levar a cabo essa tarefa ao criticar a imagem e auto-imagem da República.
