Jony Ive: The Genius Behind Apple’s Greatest Products


If you’re interested in product design and Apple, check out the biography Jony Ive: The Genius Behind Apple’s Greatest Products by Leander Kahney.

In 1997, Steve Jobs returned to Apple as CEO with the unenviable task of turning around the company he had founded. One night, Jobs discovered a scruffy British designer toiling away at Apple’s corporate headquarters, surrounded by hundreds of sketches and prototypes. It was then that Jobs realized he had found a talent who could reverse the company’s long decline.

Leander Kahney is the editor of and has written three popular books about Apple including Inside Steve’s Brain and The Cult of Mac. This unauthorised biography is based on Leander’s interviews with John Ive’s former colleagues and Kahney’s own familiarity with the world of Apple.
