    In the book “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson we are walked through Steve Job’s journey to creating one of the biggest technology companies in the world. The biographies starts out with talking about the early life of Job’s. Jobs was born to two graduate students who had to give him up for adoption, and because his biological parents wanted him to have the best future possible they insisted on only giving him up to college graduates. After meeting Paul and Clara jobs they were still hesitant because of their lack of education. But after learning about the couples jobs and after the couple promising to fund Steve’s college education they changed their minds. Ever since he was young, Jobs was exposed to the world of mechanics. He would spend long hours with his father, dismantling and rebuilding electronic devices in the family garage. These were the experiences that first got Jobs interested in the world of technology and mechanics.    While still in highschool Jobs met a man named Steve Wozniak. Steve Wozniak was a college freshman who was also deeply interested in technology. Jobs and Wozniak began to develop  a friendship that would some day become a partnership. After graduating high school Jobs enrolled in Reed college, but six months later he dropped out to pursue his creative classes. Jobs also went to work as a technician for Atari in 1973. While working for Atari Jobs created a circuit board for the video game Breakout. Two years later in 1976 Jobs and Wozniak founded the “Apple Computer Company” and initially the company mainly focused on selling circuit boards but, that same year they created their first official Apple computer, the Apple I. In 1978 Jobs had a baby girl named Lisa Brennan from his partner Chrisann Brennan. Initially Jobs denied paternity but he later acknowledged Lisa as his child. In 1985, difference of opinion between him and the company’s CEO John Sculley led to Jobs resigning from his own founded company. In the same year, he founded NeXT Inc. The company was famous for its technical strengths especially its object-oriented software development system. Interestingly, in 1996, when Apple acquired NeXT Inc, he returned to his own co-founded company as a de facto chief in the company and was formally named interim chief executive. Under Jobs’ guidance, a number of projects were disbanded. He introduced a whole new range of products which steeply increased the sales of the company, making it one of the biggest electronic giants in the world.          In 2003, Jobs was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Jobs attempted to cure it using alternative medicines that he learned from his time in India. These treatments did not help. After a Whipple procedure and, later, a liver transplant, Jobs health was looking up. However, around 2010, his health deteriorated. Jobs passed away in 2011.
