    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Erica says: "Possibly The Best Techno-thriller Ever"
    "Great Book, Great Narrator, Great Oral Rendition"
    Overall

    I have been on audible for a few months. I have downloaded over 6 books and this one is simply a great book. The narrator is awesome, making characters distinguishable fron one another, and Daniel Suarez backs it up with a great techno-thrilling plot. The plot gets to be a stretch, but let your mind go, and you'll enjoy it. I highly recommend it to those that are geeky gamers, to tech heads.

    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.

    Story

    The narration, pace, inflection and tone really set this book atop anything else I've ever listened to when it comes to audio books. The changes from one person's perspective to the next really helped me hone in on the dialog. The narrator was not chosen to sound like jobs and I can appreciate that. An excellent listen.

    It is also a great biography of a complex man and his unbelievable approach to make great products. His tantrums can be brutal. His unbelievable passion drove people crazy or made them overcome insurmountable obstacles. Decisions that typically has companies up in arms for months, Jobs did in 30 minutes. I get he was not an inventor. He was not an engineer, but put his love of making a great product above anything. I can't recommend it enough. I will probably rewind back to the beginning and immediately listen to it again.
