<p><b>A riveting biography of the groundbreaking innovator who was a giant in the worlds of computing, music, filmmaking, design, smart phones, and more. A finalist for the YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Award!</b></p><p>"Your time is limited. . . . have the courage to follow your heart and intuition." —Steve Jobs</p><p>From the start, his path was never predictable. Steve Jobs was given up for adoption at birth, dropped out of college after one semester, and at the age of twenty, created Apple in his parents' garage with his friend Steve Wozniack. </p><p>Then came the core and hallmark of his genius—his exacting moderation for perfection, his counterculture life approach, and his level of taste and style that pushed all boundaries. A devoted husband, father, and Buddhist, he battled cancer for over a decade, became the ultimate CEO, and made the world want every product he touched, from the Macintosh to the iPhone, from iTunes and the iPod to the Macbook.</p><p>Critically acclaimed author Karen Blumenthal takes us to the core of this complicated and legendary man while simultaneously exploring the evolution of computers. Framed by Jobs' inspirational Stanford commencement speech and illustrated throughout with black and white photos, this is the story of the man who changed our world.</p><p><b>Read more thrilling nonfiction by Karen Blumenthal:</b><br /><b></b><i>Hillary Rodham Clinton: A Woman Living History</i> (A YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Award Finalist)<br /><i>Bootleg: Murder, Moonshine, and the Lawless Years of Prohibition</i><br /><i>Tommy: The Gun That Changed America</i></p><p><b>Praise for Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different: A Biography:</b><br /><b></b><br />“This is a smart book about a smart subject by a smart writer.” —<i>Booklist, </i>starred review</p><p>“Students who know Steve Jobs only through Apple's iTunes, iPhones, and iPads will have their eyes opened by this accessible and well-written biography.” —<i>VOYA</i><br /><i></i><br />“An engaging and intimate portrait. Few biographies for young readers feel as relevant and current as this one does.” —<i>The Horn Book Magazine</i><br /><i></i><br />“A perceptive, well-wrought picture of an iconic figure.” —<i>Kirkus Reviews</i><br /><i></i><br />“Blumenthal crafts an insightful, balanced portrait.” —<i>Publishers Weekly</i></p>

<p><b>Think. Invent. Organize. Share. Don't be evil. And change the world.</b></p><p>Larry Page and Sergey Brin started out as two Stanford college students with a wild idea: They were going to organize the world's information. From that one deceptively simple goal, they created one of the most influential and innovative companies in the world. The word “google” has even entered our vocabulary as a verb. Now, find out the true history of Google—from its humble beginnings as a thesis project made out of “borrowed” hardware and discount toys through its revolution of the world's relationship with technology to a brief glimpse of where they might take us next. </p><p>In <i>Google It, </i>award-winning investigative reporter Anna Crowley Redding shares an inspiring story of innovation, personal and intellectual bravery, and most importantly, of shooting for the moon in order to change the world.</p>
