No more Herman Melville books.
Just tell the tale of chasing Moby Dick and forget all the other stuff.
The tale of Moby Dick is interesting, but Melville gets sidetracked on so many unrelated topics (all different types of whales, the sermon about Jonah, types of boats, etc.) that it got extremely boring. Finally, I started skipping all the digressions.
No. I am more interested in the person than all the technical background on products and design. It was big on technical and short on depth re Jony Ive as a person.
This was a spellbinding story about a company affecting our daily lives. I did not understand Twitter or its history before reading this book.
Would like to have seen more info on what Jack Dorsey was doing with Square. Not integral to the book, but would have provided background on one of books key characters.
Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson.
This is a fascinating story of Jeff Bezos and Amazon - well written and well narrated.

Definitely did not make me laugh
The books kept my interest from beginning to end. However, it was a little painful to relive this event.
George Guidall did a fantastic job of reading one of the best books I have ever read!
Jean val Jon because he is remarkable
The final scene
The entire book
I have learned to avoid books where the author does the narrative. The author may be able to write, but is usually not a good narrator and this books was no exception. The narration is so bad, and the story so weak, I am putting the book down after one chapter. I wish Audible had made it clear the author was the narrator. In the credits they say it is narrated by Conan O'Brien, Jon Stewart and others. Those people say so little it is misleading to even mention them.
East of Eden
I have listened to his other performances. He is the best!
Should be must read.
Can't tell - put book down after three chapters
If you are interested in what the authors have to say you might like this book. I was not interested in all their personal opinions.
Nothing. It is what it is.
I would like to have listened to Inside Coca-Cola, but it is not in audio.
If you like nighmarish, creepy stories like the old Twilight Zones, this is your book. Although I did not like the stories, the narration was well done.
