In Life By Design, George Beahm connects the dots between Steve Jobs' personal life and his famous Stanford lecture. In 2005, Steve Jobs gave a commencement address to the 114th graduating class at Stanford University. This speech went on to reach 26 million online viewers worldwide and framed 'three stories' that succinctly summed up the most important life-changing lessons Jobs learned in life. Life by Design begins with Jobs' own words from this historical speech and expands outwards from there, giving insights into his personal and business philosophies. This book brings together his ideas and goes beyond to give explanations behind the statements, the visions and the inspiring lessons to be learned from Jobs' life, by design.
