How in the world did he remake, not one, but four industries?

Henry Ford remade the AUTO industry. Juan Trippe invented the global AIRLINE. Conrad Hilton created the world's first international HOTELS. These entrepreneurs -- and many others like them -- defined or redefined a market. A world-changing accomplishment, certainly.

Steve Jobs, on the other hand, has "radically and lucratively reordered" not one, but four markets -- music, movies, mobile phones, and computing. And he has done so ...

... in industries that were already mature

... in just 10 years

... At a time when the economy has been among the worst in history.

How did he do it? Do you think anyone can repeat this accomplishment? "Only the next Steve Jobs can," you might say!
