More information that's actually new, rather than repeating oft-stated Apple lore.
Rather than conducting interviews, collecting common knowledge about a topic, and seeing what you get, please write books with a purpose.
Gave me insight into secretive nature of Apple and I enjoyed the opining of Apple's future post Jobs.
yes, Nice writing style
Pleasant voice and delivery.
Most of the book was covered in other books on Apple.
I would recommend a listen.

Back stage at Apple...
Loved the book. Especially complements the Steve Jobs biography.
I enjoyed it more knowing the author was reading it. The book has lots of little nuggets - not the least of which is the author repeatedly reminding us that he is not an
It offered more of a business management vantage of Apple - rather than the storybook or biography format of other books. That's not to say it was boring. I burned through the entire book very quickly.

Jobs and Cook
An outsider's view with an insider's access.
This was a really excellent follow up to Job's biography. Proposes answers to questions such as:
What is it like to work at Apple?
What specifically makes Apple different from its competitors?

A nice inside baseball book. Majority of content already known to Apple fanboys. I'm not much a fan of how the author reading it.
