DescriptionFrom the best-selling biographer of Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin comes the authorized story of Steve Jobs, one of the most celebrated global business figures in history. Award-winning author and journalist Walter Isaacson enjoyed unprecedented access to Jobs and conducted more than 40 personal interviews with him over two years. In addition, he talked to more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues. The result is a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and intense personality of a creator, entrepreneur and executive whose fierce drive and passion for perfection revolutionized personal computers, animated movies, music, mobile phones, tablet computing digital publishing and "apps."
We are proud to welcome Isaacson for a conversation about Jobs' life, inspiration and legacy with Museum CEO John Hollar.
