Steve Jobs was a pioneer. He certainly was "in the right place at the right time, offering timely product and having a suitable temperament." To succeed, he was initially ready to go at all. Authoritarianism and dictatorship, perhaps, were not the best methods of winning friends and influence, but certainly without them would not take place the phenomenon of "Apple". To achieve the objective Jobs used all his"will to power." That's what he differed from most successful managers of their time,and due to this he managed to make history.
