養子としての生い立ち、禅や菜食主義との関わり、Reed Collegeの中退、Stephen Wozniakをはじめとした人々とのAppleの立ち上げ、Chrisann Brenannとの恋愛(しかし、子どもを最初は認知しなかった)、など。



At a time when the United States is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, and when societies around the world are trying to build creative digital-age economies, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness, imagination, and sustained innovation. He knew that the best way to create value in the twenty-first century was to connect creativity with technology, so he built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering. He and his colleagues at Apple were able to think differently: They developed not merely modest product advances based on focus groups, but whole new devices and services that consumers did not yet know they needed.
