A beautiful read into the life and intellectual struggles of Einstein as he dealt with personal issues and world events. Isaacson truly does a brilliant job of pulling no punches and pulling the reader into the struggles Einstein went through as a Jewish intellectual in Nazi Germany and then the patriotic vigor of pushing the US to invest the time and energy to build the bomb to beat the German's to it and then the moral struggling he dealt with living with the realization that helped in the slaughter of millions of people. One of the best biographies I have ever read.
A very interesting look into the life of Edison that paints the picture of a brilliant inventor that was flawed with traits of being very vain, elitist, over opinionated, and a very poor business man. Obviously in hindsight but the author tells a story of missed opportunities due to his character flaws keeping him from thriving of his inventions similar to the story of the McDonnell brothers in the fast food world. The business and personal relationship between Edison and Ford was the most interesting part of the book for me. Grover Gardner does a great job of narration as usual.
Captures the insanity of the hacker and gammer worlds that collided to build ID and the first shooter phenomenon. The insane hours and world size egos broke the barriers to deliver a whole new world, insane riches, and also tore apart the working relationships and friendships along the way. A nice nostalgic walk down gaming history.
