    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

    With his characteristic eyebrow-raising behavior, Richard P. Feynman once provoked the wife of a Princeton dean to remark, "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" But the many scientific and personal achievements of this Nobel Prize-winning physicist are no laughing matter. Here, woven with his scintillating views on modern science, Feynman relates the defining moments of his accomplished life.

  • Charlie Chaplin and His Times

    Story
    (12)

    Author Lynn delves into Chaplin's childhood and family, his often controversial relationships with four wives and a slew of mistresses, and his associations with British music-hall impresario Fred Karno and silent-screen star and pal Douglas Fairbanks. He addresses Chaplin's political influences and convictions, and brings a keen, critical intelligence to the meaning of the films, illuminating Chaplin's elusive genius.

    What did you love best about Charlie Chaplin and His Times?

    The writer gives a great deal of detail quoting a number of other books and how they differ in information and structure, this is a good book if you wanted to find out something about the man and his life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A great deal of detail but never boring.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    too long for one sitting

    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    Keith says: "Worth the wait!"

    What did you love best about The Stand?

    It's a powerful and moving story, full of great characters and real life you can relate to, and supernatural life you can only imagine in your darkest dreams.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    From the writer of Carrie, The Shining, Needful Things, The Green Mile, Cujo, and Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption comes a story right out of revaluations watch for it The Stand!!!


    Any additional comments?

    They say its the best book Stephen King has ever written, it might be, although I have liked a lot of his books, not all but a lot.

    Millions of readers of Hatchet, The River, Brian’s Winter, and Brian’s Return know that Brian Robeson is at home in the Canadian wilderness. He has stood up to the challenge of surviving alone in the woods. He prefers being on his own in the natural world to civilization. When Brian finds a dog one night, a dog that is wounded and whimpering, he senses danger. The dog is badly hurt, and as Brian cares for it, he worries about his Cree friends who live north of his camp. With his new companion at his side, and with a terrible, growing sense of unease, he sets out to learn what happened.

    Kerry says: "Another Great Book in the Brian Book Series."

    Mike Daisey worked at Amazon.com for nearly two years during the dot-com frenzy of the late nineties. Now that his nondisclosure agreement has expired, he can tell the real story - one that blends tech culture, hero worship, cat litter, Albanian economics, and venture capitalism into a surreal cocktail of delusion.
