    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    If you could sum up Steve Jobs in three words, what would they be?

    Brillant, innovate, creative.


    What other book might you compare Steve Jobs to and why?

    There isn't a comparable book.


    What does Dylan Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I didn't love the narration but the book is compelling.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was mesmerizing and is appealing to any generation. A great story!

    Born mute, speaking only in sign, Edgar Sawtelle leads an idyllic life with his parents and an unusual breed of dogs on their farm in remote northern Wisconsin. But when tragedy strikes the Sawtelle family, Edgar flees to the surrounding wilderness. He comes of age in the wild, fighting for his survival and that of the three yearling dogs who follow him.

    "Tried to like this"
    Overall

    I got this book because of the good reviews....and I have tried and tried to like this. After 4 hours of listening it is getting slightly better. It drags on and on. Maybe it would be better in print.
    I wouldn't recommend it.
