Walter Isaacson on Steve Jobs’ passion for innovation and perfection

June 29, 2012

Walter Isaacson is a best-selling author who gives voice to the historical figures and business icons who have transformed our nation and the world. Isaacson spent the last two years working on the only authorized biography of Apple Co-founder, Steve Jobs, titled Steve Jobs. “The thing that made Apple so successful was that Jobs realized that when you have a passion for profit instead of a passion for product, you will not make profits,” Isaacson said.


On September 18, Isaacson will join us for a 90-minute broadcast on Timeless Leadership: Leadership Lessons from Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin. Click here for details>>
