It’s not hard to believe that the whole world may be getting ready to read the story of Steve Jobs’ life. He has fascinated us all to such a degree that it wouldn’t be hard to imagine that this book would be the Titanic of its genre; selling out and in volumes never seen before.
The former Time Magazine editor, Walter Isaacson, was asked if he would consider writing Jobs’ biography in the summer of 2004. The book was released in bookstores on October 24, 2011 and is already proving to be one of Amazon.com’s best selling ebooks.
Steve Jobs was a very mesmerizing man and his story means something to almost everyone. His ideas have become an integral part of who we have become as people moving forward in mind and in spirit.
The Pixar Touch by David A. Price touches on his journey as a Pixar financier; working with John Lasseter and a team of computer programmers on the concept of making feature films using 3D animation technology which hadn’t been developed yet. He was one of the pioneering spirits responsible for 3D animated gems like Toy Story I, II,and III, in addition to making movies like A Bug’s Life, Monster’s Inc., Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, and Cars.
The power of belief, the act of being a rebel, and the wonders of not conforming. He was so many things. His creativity is a wonder to behold. Who would’ve imagined one man could’ve looked at the world and determined we should head in this direction and everyone followed.
The beautiful mind of Steve Jobs has taken us even one step further. The discovery that the Ipad has helped open a new world for Autistic children can make anyone who has been personally touched by Autism weep with joy, because of how it opens a window of communication for children plagued by an inability to communicate. It can be the most heart wrenching part of coping with a child who has Autism. What joy parents can know when they discover their child may know what it’s like to express themselves using the Ipad as their tool. Just one more way Steve Jobs has made the world a better place to live.
May his life lead the rest of the world to produce more people who believe beyond what’s normal, people who dare not conform, and people who understand that if you want to change the world, you can.
