Steve Jobs biographer writing on digital age
After writing a best-selling book about a superstar of the digital age, Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson is working on a tribute to teamwork.
Isaacson has a book out Oct. 7 about the forces behind the rise of computers and the Internet. Simon & Schuster announced that the book will be called “The Innovators: How a Group of Inventors, Hackers, Geniuses and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution.”
In a statement released by his publisher, Isaacson says he would go on beyond the headlines and tell how many of the major digital innovations were produced through collaborations.
He says the best minds were made even better by their ability to work with others.
