Seven Titles About Apple, Company Influencers, and More

The next Friday, April 23, 2021, International Book Day is celebrated, a worldwide date with which we want to promote the reading and protection of intellectual property through copyright.

UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) is the body in charge of promoting it. The reason why it is this day is not by chance, because in 1616 Miguel de Cervantes, Shakespeare and Garcilaso de la Vega passed away, and was created in his honor. The first time it was held was in 1996, so this 2021 is the 25th time that they are honored.

In this article we collect some of the best books on Apple that can be acquired to know in depth the history of the company, curiosities and some of the most influential people who have contributed to making it a benchmark.

Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs

We start with Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs (10.40 euros), the genius behind the company with the bitten apple who passed away a few years ago. Isaacson has used the dozens of interviews conducted with the former CEO of Apple, as well as a hundred with his closest environment (family, friends, adversaries and colleagues), to create the only biography written in collaboration with Jobs. It is interesting, because although he collaborated, Jobs did not put obstacles or conditions. He didn’t even read it before it was published.
