THE APPLE BOOK BUNDLE
Jony Ive: The Genius Behind Apple's Greatest Products (Hardcover): 320 Pages
An inside look on Apple's legendary chief designer, Jonathan Ive.
Jony Ive's designs have not only made Apple one of the most valuable companies in the world; they've overturned entire industries, from music and mobile phones to PCs and tablets. But for someone who has changed the world as much as he has
, little is widely known about Apple's Senior Vice President of Industrial Design.
In the first book to focus on Ive, Leander Kahney offers a rigorous and systematic examination of a remarkably creative career and provides insight into the principles underlying Ive's success.
Having covered Apple as an editor since the 1990s
and interviewed Ive on numerous occasions, Kahney offers a unique perspective on how this man designs killer products that attract fanatically loyal customers.
Inside Steve's Brain (Paperback Book): 312 Pages
One of USA Today's Best Business Books of 2008 - now updated with a new chapter.
It's hard to believe that one man revolutionized computers in the 1970s and '80s (with the Apple II and the Mac), animated movies in the 1990s (with Pixar), and digital music in the 2000s (with the iPod and iTunes). No wonder some people worship Steve Jobs like a god.
On the other hand, stories of his epic tantrums and general bad behavior are legendary. Inside Steve's Brain cuts through the cult of personality that surrounds Jobs to unearth the secrets to his unbelievable results.
So what's really inside Steve's brain? According to Leander Kahney, who has covered Jobs since the early 1990s, it's a fascinating bundle of contradictions.
This expanded edition includes a new chapter on Jobs's very-public health crisis and the debate about Apple's future.
