The Steve Jobs Archive has recently announced the launch of a new free digital book containing speeches, interviews, and letters from the late Apple co-founder.
The book called “Make Something Wonderful: Steve Jobs in his own words”, will present Jobs’ thoughts on various topics such as his childhood, his experiences with launching and being removed from Apple, his time with Pixar and NeXT, and his eventual return to the company. The book will also contain an introduction by Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell Jobs.
This book is the first significant release from the archive since it was announced in September. While the book’s website does not provide much information beyond what has been mentioned, it is anticipated that it will resemble a book version of the archive’s current website, which showcases some speeches and an email that Jobs wrote to himself.
The book’s title was inspired by a quote from Jobs during an internal Apple meeting, where he expressed that one way to show appreciation to humanity was by creating something wonderful and sharing it with the world.
The archive says, “In the pages of this book, Steve shares his perspective on his childhood, on launching and being pushed out of Apple, on his time with Pixar and NeXT, and on his ultimate return to the company that started it all.”
Release Date of Make Something Wonderful
Make Something Wonderful will release on digital platforms on April 11th, according to the book’s webpage. However, the exact digital platforms on which it will be available have not yet been disclosed.
