The Second Coming of Steve Jobs
Deutschman's first book is a revealing, balanced portrait of Apple Computer CEO and founder Steve Jobs. This fast paced book - which has been a business best seller and translated into several foreign languages - is a well researched look inside one of Silicon Valley's flagship companies and follows the man who engineered one of the greatest turnarounds in the post-Internet economy. Deutschman gets closer to Jobs's inner self than any previous attempt, seeking to understand the man, not the icon.
