READ PDF The Steve Jobs Way: iLeadership for a New Generation By Jay Elliot TRIAL EBOOK #Mobi. The former Senior Vice President of Apple Computer and close colleague of Steve Jobs's throughout his tenure, Jay Elliot takes readers on a. In this book the author gives the reader the opportunity of seeing Steve Jobs as only his closest associates have ever seen him, and to learn what has made him, .
The fact that publishers went along with it is a clear indication of just how desperate they were to break the stranglehold Amazon had on the ebook business.
You see, Amazon was doing its own bit of price-fixing. The whole discount-over-time model was thrown out the window. He wanted to build market share, fast, and knew the quickest way to do that was through consumer's wallets.
They'd be much more likely to adopt Amazon's Kindle ereaders if they thought they could find new books for much less than they could by 1 buying Amazon's own hardcovers or 2 shopping at the local bookseller think retail discounter and current ebook competitor Barnes and Noble.
How Steve Jobs, Rupert Murdoch and Stephen King Worked To Fix Ebook Prices
This plan worked and by , ebooks were outselling traditional books on Amazon. Over the years I spoke to numerous people in the publishing industry who were somewhat shocked and not necessarily happy with this turn of events. Was it any wonder he was riding coach?
Certainly, undercutting brick and mortar competitors by more than half on new hardcovers made it difficult for anyone else to compete in the ebooks space. Amazon was doing something few others could at the time: swallowing significant revenue losses until the scale of the business caught up.
I'm not saying what Steve Jobs and publishers did back in and was right. But it was right there in front of everyone's face. Only Steve Jobs could be so bold and, like it or not, what he did probably saved or improved more than one business. Without Apple to force Amazon to rethink its pricing model, book publishers might have had to resort to draconian measures to stay afloat and deliver product for all I know, they did anyway. Authors might have seen their publishing and sales platform opportunities shrink as fewer publishers took risks on unknown or no-name authors.
Oh, and surely Amazon would be making less money on ebooks than it is today.
The Steve Jobs Way: iLeadership for a New Generation
What good will come of this DOJ investigation? Finally, I was most disappointed with the fact that I didn't gain any new insights into leadership or Jobs. Most of the really insightful parts I had heard before, and this book didn't really add anything new. Nevertheless, it was entertaining, and some of the stories of Apple and Jobs in the early years were interesting.

The Up side: If you are a Steve Jobs's fan then this book is a must. It gives a good insight on the inside of apple,and how this greater than life figure annoyed most people around him to get apple's product to perfection. A product Czar who worries about most meticulous detail and an entrepreneur who worried only about the consumer experience. A leader who was at times unreasonable, but never forgot to say a word of thank you or show gratitude to everyone who contributed to any of Apple's produc The Up side: A leader who was at times unreasonable, but never forgot to say a word of thank you or show gratitude to everyone who contributed to any of Apple's product.
Most interesting bits were: Meeting with Canon and Sony. NO one button, figure it out. Tim Cook the COO back then was named as the person who could bring all the pieces together, even with Steve gone. He is as tenacious, perfectionist, and someone who believes in holistic product approach. The innovation, entrepreneurship element, creativity are all installed at the top team that Steve has worked on for several years.
I dream of things that never were, and ask why not? The excessive usage of flash forwards and flash backwards, made you lose your sense of time. Sometimes it's the iPhone, others it's Apple2 without any warning! I am just not interested. Personal note: I really felt sad with Steve's death.
Please don't think I am a drama queen, please do not call me an infidel because a I am sad over a Buddhist death. I am just sad because of his contribution to humanity and how we are more in touch with Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, but seem to truly value the likes of Steve only when they are gone.
Is this applicable in my own hometown?
I hope we do reach a level of understanding that it is a performance based organizations that matter and that leadership is a form of Art, there isn't right or wrong about it.

Apr 02, Jason rated it liked it Recommends it for: Apple fanboys. This is an entertaining book, especially for fans of Apple, but it can also be an frustrating book.
At first, it begins to read less like a book on leadership, and more like a memoir of sorts of Elliot's time at Apple. Then it turns into what amounts to unabashed praising of Steve Jobs, Apple, and their products.
Even when he offers criticism, he only does so to identify a particular lesson learned that pays off later. It almost feels as if Apple's PR department or even Jobs himself vetted thi This is an entertaining book, especially for fans of Apple, but it can also be an frustrating book.
It almost feels as if Apple's PR department or even Jobs himself vetted this book.
What is Kobo Super Points?
However, it's possible that no vetting was necessary because the author was so enamored with Jobs and Apple that nothing but undulating praise flowed through the first draft. Mar 28, Haider Al-Mosawi rated it liked it. I found this book very irritating because it reads like a PR release than a book on leadership lessons.
Steve Jobs is hailed as a great leader and wonderful visionary whose vices were either presented as virtues or a weak rationalization was offered to do away with them.
If you find the warped reality of Apple fanboys to be annoying, then this book I found this book very irritating because it reads like a PR release than a book on leadership lessons. If you find the warped reality of Apple fanboys to be annoying, then this book is definitely not for you.
I'm interested in the history of tech companies and getting a peek inside Apple made the book worth it. But I'd love to read a more balanced book on Steve Jobs. One that either completely avoids any discussion of his questionable management techniques and unethical business practices or one that highlights the lessons we can learn from his failings, as well.
Feb 20, Jacques Bezuidenhout rated it really liked it. Great supplementary book to the Walter Isaacson biography. Pretty short, so doesn't get bogged down with too much details. He highlights all the business decisions that he believes made Steve a great leader, and the best innovator. The book does make Steve seem like this almost deity, where as in the biography it was clear that he was a big a-hole as well.
If you look ov Great supplementary book to the Walter Isaacson biography. If you look over the punting of Steve, there are a bunch of valuable snippets on how to treat your employees, and the type of employees you should be looking for in the first place.
You cannot have people working for you that don't use or support your product. Constantly rewarding for reaching milestones and hands-on constant review cycles. Steve also believed in fairly flat organisational structure, and managed Apple like start-up till the end.
I would recommend reading the biography before this book. As this book might make things seem better than they actually were. Jobs is most often celebrated for his vision and his emphasis on elegant, simple design. In The Steve Jobs Way: This is a view that few people have ever had of this unique, sometimes confounding, corporate visionary. The single question that is most often asked about Apple is how Jobs is able to get so many people to push themselves to create products that, although never previously conceived, instantly alter our lives.
It was like reading Sherlock Holmes. And of course Jay Elliot as Watson told the reader their adventures at Apple, a very close observation of the way Steve Jobs made the revolutionary devices. Through the stories we can see what Steve's beliefs about how products should be and how he built the products and the team to make that kind of product delivered to customers.
I think these are things we can learn from him. Steve had detail observation of It was like reading Sherlock Holmes. Steve had detail observation of consumer experiences and he got an exquisite sense of art to solve the problem of creating phenomenal electronic devices. He was also a great negotiator and marketer. And these qualities are hardly imitated by anyone. Overall the book told us that there is another way customer should use the products, there is another way to lead a company, there is another way to do things..

How Steve Jobs Got Apple Into Trouble Over Ebooks
As someone who is not some years after this book was written a major fan of Apple, mostly because I feel that they are grasping at straws as they find themselves sinking well below the innovation standard that other major players are bringing to the market.
I do however think that this book brings some incredible insight to what it means to be an individual who has a passion to change the world in some way. I thoroughly enjoyed the insights we get into the thinking of Steve Jobs. To see his why As someone who is not some years after this book was written a major fan of Apple, mostly because I feel that they are grasping at straws as they find themselves sinking well below the innovation standard that other major players are bringing to the market.
To see his why behind everything he did. Seeing the extent of his vision and that nothing would stop him from making it a reality. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is hungry for the knowledge of what it would take to leave a significant impact in any aspect of this world.
Apr 18, Sheldon rated it really liked it Shelves: Insightful book. That would be my only criticism of the book Because it's not meant to be a straight biography, the story jumps around a bit so if you don't know a bit of the history of Insightful book. Because it's not meant to be a straight biography, the story jumps around a bit so if you don't know a bit of the history of Apple and Steve you may get a little confused on timing but on the flip side it goes fairly deep into some situations that may be more than someone looking for Steve's tenants cares for.
All in all, I thought it was a good book and provided more insight into Apple and Steve's rule there than maybe any other.In enumerating these, he further simplifies a complex issue in efforts to get Murdoch to make a decision.
