Jeffrey S. Young - Steve Jobs (The Journey is the Reward) (2nd Hand Hardback)
Early book on Steve Jobs and Apple. Long out-of-print and highly acclaimed, Steve Jobs: The Journey is the Reward is the searing, detailed, intimate account of the twenty-something Steve’s youth, personal development, and first stint at Apple until he was ousted in 1985.
Based on extraordinary access to Steve and everyone who knew him, the book was written in 1988 and draws a complete and complex picture of the first thirty years of the most fascinating titan of the tech era.
Steve Jobs wanted nothing less than to change the world. He did. With a computer. And a company called Apple. In a corner of his parents’ garage - with electronic whiz-kid Steve Wozniak - he parlayed his grasp of technology, a wildcatter’s raw nerve, and an irresistible vision of the future into the biggest success story in the history of Silicon Valley.
He was an adopted orphan, a college dropout, a Hare Krishna, a wanderer through India, an acidhead, a brilliant motivator and vicious destroyer, a relentless self-promoter, and a fearless and foolhardy risk-taker who inspired - and terrified - those who worked with him.
Ten years later, after shattered friendships, titanic power struggles, wild tantrums, and wily manoeuvres he was removed as Chairman of the Board - leaving him on the outside with millions of dollars and a new dream: NeXT.
The author had extraordinary access to Steve and Apple during the Macintosh development period and its aftermath - as co-founder of MacWorld he spent years inside the company. A longtime science & technology editor for Forbes, he is also the co-author of the 2005 bestseller iCon Steve Jobs - The Greatest Second Act in the History of Business.

"After reading two other books on Steve Jobs, and one on Pixar, I wanted to know deeper details on the foundations of his personality, his leadership style, the products and services he was behind, the events that he was involved with, and some of the challenges that Apple faced during those days.
There is plenty of content on his life in many other places, but this book contains exclusive, extensive, and exhaustive material from his early days that makes it a testament to how the journey, rather than the destination, is the real reward." - Amazon Review.
