How Andy Grove Persuaded Steve Jobs To Return To Apple

When Steve Jobs was asked to return to Apple for his triumphant second coming,  he wavered.

“I talked to people I respected,” Jobs told his biographer Walter Isaacson, “I finally called Andy Grove.”

Grove told him: “Steve, I don’t give a shit about Apple.”

“I was stunned,” recalled Jobs.

” It was then I realised that I do give a shit about Apple – I started it and it is a good thing to have in the world. That was when I decided to go back.”
