Seven Simple Principles - Steve Jobs

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs will be remembered as one of a handful of history’s most elite innovators. He was the classic American entrepreneur — starting his company in the spare bedroom of his parents’ house and pioneering the development of the first personal computer for everyday use. This was a man who was fired from the company he had started, but returned 12 years later to save it from near bankruptcy. Not only that, but in the next 10 years Jobs used Apple to reinvent four different industries — computing, music, telecommunications and entertainment. (Let’s not forget he was the CEO of a little company called Pixar.)

Everyone wants to learn more about what made Steve Jobs tick, yet very few journalists have identified the core  principles that drove Jobs and his success. In his book The Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs (McGraw-Hill, 2010) Carmine Gallo reveals the 7 principles that were largely responsible for his breakthrough success — principles that guided Jobs throughout his career.
