Fortune: The Legacy Of Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs leaves behind an extraordinary legacy, putting him in a class with America's greatest industrialists. He was the most innovative business leader of our time, the man FORTUNE named CEO of the Decade in 2009.
Now from FORTUNE comes the richly illustrated story of his life at the helm of Apple, based in part on three decades of FORTUNE stories about the cultural icon who revolutionized computing, telephones, movies, music, retailing, and product design. FORTUNE was with him every step of the way, describing in unparalleled detail the career of a man with relentless drive and a single underlying passion-to carry out his vision of how all of us would use technology. In the end he was proved right a billion times over, and his company became one of the most successful enterprises on the planet.
All of these chapters are the product of deep reporting. In many cases FORTUNE's writers spent hours interviewing Jobs and delving into his mind. The result is a singular journalistic collection, which will leave you with a comprehensive picture of a man who changed the world, a picture that is complex in the making yet simple in its triumph.
A Modern Job
"With the advance of learning there are springing up ever newer and subtler objections to religion. M. Giran has formulated many of these and centered them about the assumed experiences of a twentieth-century descendant of Job, a Dutchman who loses family and wealth and raises anew the problem of evil. The three "friends" speak along modern lines, while Elihu, who is the modern Job's old servant, quotes the command-"Love one another."
"First, Eliphaz presents a God who wills evil for men's moral growth through discipline and conquest of that evil, or for more mysterious designs. Job replies this God is immoral, he permits evil. Bildad's God is not really but only metaphysically omnipotent, and suffers evil because of this limitation. He is love, sympathy, and compassion for man, and man is his partner in the fight and in the ultimate victory. To this Job replies, God is then a feeble being and contemptible therefore, not worshipful. Zophar's god is the serene, unchangeable spirit or deity of Buddhists and pantheists- "immutable in his eternal will." Men by mismanagement or sin are responsible for human evil. It is theirs to overcome and ultimately to acquire' omnipotence. The answer to this is, God is then heartless, incapable of love; evil is still evil, suffering exists. Elihu's contribution is summed up in the command-"Love one another." The three friends leave Job looking into the west at sunset and amazed at the beauty of the spectacle. The author concludes with the question: "Was God, by opening his eyes to the beauty of his universe, already restoring to him the very treasures of life that blind circumstance had snatched from his grasp?"
"When so many are concerned in this crisis with the problem of God, and when novelists like Wells and Chesterton write three novels in quick succession dealing with that problem, it is not one that ministers dare neglect. This little book presents many objections to the orthodox idea of God and religion."
-Homiletic Review, Volume 74
Ecological Engineering Design
Ecologically-sensitive building and landscape design is a broad, intrinsically interdisciplinary field. Existing books independently cover narrow aspects of ecological design in depth (hydrology, ecosystems, soils, flora and fauna, etc.), but none of these books can boast of the integrated approach taken by this one. Drawing on the experience of the authors, this book begins to define explicit design methods for integrating consideration of ecosystem processes and services into every facet of land use design, management, and policy. The approach is to provide a prescriptive approach to ecosystem design based upon ecological engineering principles and practices. This book will include a novel collection of design methods for the non-built and built environments, linking landscape design explicitly to ecosystem services.
