Anatomy of an Apple turns the abstract business concepts behind Apple's astounding comeback into easily digestible everyday business lessons.
From start to finish, you will be treated to a feast of life changing anecdotes, piquant down and dirty myth-busting and utterly refreshing, setting-the-record-straight facts and figures. Anatomy of an Apple is an engaging and knowledgeable romp through technology history. Anatomy of an Apple takes us on a journey through the highs and lows of Steve's fascinating life across several businesses, including Apple, NeXT, and Pixar
How these two entities, Steve the man, and Apple the company, healed each other, is well worth learning. They began bruised and battered, and became a thriving partnership. Applying those elements to your own situations and challenges, is the way to personally reach the next level.
Steve’s approach to solving challenges is what Anatomy of an Apple is about. It’s also about what happens when you relentlessly pursue quality and principle. He wasn’t superhuman. He had personal flaws. He made mistakes. That makes his achievements all the more impressive. In the end, what really matters to history, and to the world at large, is what he was committed to, passionate about and worked for. The results speak for themselves.
Highly recommended for entrepreneurs
I came into this book a skeptic, as I have read many Apple-related self-help entrepreneurship books which promised much but yielded little. There are many authors in this genre which do nothing more than capitalize on Apple’s success by stuffing their titles full of entertaining fillers than writing content which delivers actual lessons of real entrepreneurship value. I was therefore very much taken aback when I actually started getting into the book. The author does a great job of delivering a scientific teardown of the company from its younger days all the way up to its present status without being too rigid about it. It strikes a healthy balance in providing empirical evidence of the company’s history without sounding like a research paper; without trying to deliver mere soundbites like in the books I’ve mentioned above. This is the type of book I would go to over and over because of the soundness of the advice contained within. My opinion is that the relatively intellectual entrepreneur with a few years of experience behind his belt will get the most out of it; but even aspiring entrepreneurs will find a lot of good advice. At $9.99, the value it offers is a bargain....More
I received this during a very busy time when I did not have the space to really focus on the book. So I began the book by glossing over much of the beginning. I got the impression that it is written by a die hard Steve Jobs fan and that turned me off a little. However, as I started reading more I found myself learning quite a bit and my attitude toward the book changed. Unfortunately, I didn't have space to focus on the book. I also found the writing style to not be my cup of tea as its very factual and more "telling" than "showing". Even despite my personal tastes, I found what I read worthwhile....More
