About the book:

iCon takes a look at the most astounding figure in a business era noted for its mavericks, oddballs, and iconoclasts. Drawing on a wide range of sources, Jeffrey Young and William Simon provide new perspectives on the legendary creation of Apple, detail Jobss meteoric rise, and the devastating plunge that left him not only out of Apple, but out of the computer-making business entirely. This unflinching and completely unauthorized portrait reveals both sides of Jobss role in the remarkable rise of the Pixar animation studio, also re-creates the acrimony between Jobs and Disneys Michael Eisner, and examines Jobss dramatic his rise from the ashes with his recapture of Apple. The authors examine the takeover and Jobss reinvention of the company with the popular iMac and his transformation of the industry with the revolutionary iPod. iCon is must reading for anyone who wants to understand how the modern digital age has been formed, shaped, and refined by the most influential figure of the agea master of three industries: movies, music, and computers.
