After his exit from Apple in 1985, he would not give up but went to start a new company called NeXT which Apple subsequently started a partnership with in 1996 and acquired in 1997.

Steve then releases technological revolutions that are still immensely significant parts of our lives now like the iPhone and the iPad. Furthermore, moving on later into Jobs' life, it was coming to an end after all the diligent effort to become a successful business person.
“If you fall behind, run faster, never give up, never surrender and fight until the end”- Jesse Jackson. This concept of staying strong even when something hard and never let someone else get into your head has a direct relationship with Steve Jobs like no other. Steve Jobs shared how his biggest downfalls lead to his greatest peaks during his “Stanford 2005 Commencement Address.” Some may say that Jobs’ successes define him, however it was his challenges that defined him because it erected his love for calligraphy and technology, it fostered his creativity, and taught him to appreciate each day like it was his last. Steve Jobs went to Reed College and dropped out during the first six months because, he thought that college was too expensive and he did not like the classes he was talking at the time. In this quote Jobs explains what success had resulted from being a college
He always believed in his work and ideas that’s why he did not sell Facebook to Yahoo as it offered to buy Facebook for $100 million but at this time his team was against his decision because they thought selling was a good deal and within a year his entire team left the company.

During the first half of the book I was feeling the shit out of the book as he was focusing on Steve's negative attitude and his bad attitude with those around him and even his foul smell and boyish movements and I did not want to know all this about him and I do not care in the end if he was not around the creators could He controls them and frightens them when their creations do not appear and they achieve their dreams Perhaps the biggesr Attributes helped Steve in his life is stubbornness and the search for perfection in design and a strong focus on what he does and hard work continuous, and if there are a lot of wrong things that cost the company a lot of money, but it helped to bring out the innovations of Apple and It is an art that people want to acquire, but with the possibility of using it and not only to review it, it is the intensity of his obsession with perfection was focused on the design of hidden interior pieces, which was the one who stresses that the user can not open the device but it is hidden but was focused on Be pretty and lots of stories prove
However, Steve grew up like a hippie in California and Bill Gates was the son of a prominent Seattle attorney and attended a private school. Gates was very shy, and he had a sense for business and strategy.

This is the reason why Apple is still developed well but in Cook’s style. This is why we perceive Tim Cook as an ideal CEO of Apple, not the secondary Steve Jobs. Not only did he define his own leadership style, but he also excels and has become one of the best leaders on the planet.
