Enslow Salutes Steve Jobs

All of us at Enslow note with sadness the passing of Steve Jobs. As with many people around the world, Jobs' products and creative zeal touched us and continue to impact our work. We thought his life was so intriguing that, a decade ago, we published his biography. This age-appropriate narrative, relating Jobs' innovative talent and entrepreneurial drive, was welcomed by librarians and teachers. (Thank you!)

Library ISBN: 978-0-7660-3441-9
Paperback ISBN: 978-1-59845-728-5
We're proud of our Jobs biography, which has neatly fit into the forward-looking titles we have published over three decades for young readers. Enslow continues to provide reliable, well-edited books on the people and trends that shape today's society and tomorrow's leaders. Books on industry giants such as Bill Gates are included among our middle school selections. (Gates, in his blog The Gates Notes, writes a brief, moving tribute to Jobs.) A new Enslow book, Using Technology: A How-To Guide by Sherri Mabry Gordon, explores core issues young readers face in this new, data-driven world. For elementary school students, our Ace Your Oral or Multimedia Presentation title introduces readers in ways to use the very machines Steve Jobs created to communicate and learn in new, exciting ways.
