    Nintendo has continually set the standard for video game innovation in America, starting in 1981 with a plucky hero who jumped over barrels to save a girl from an ape.

    Story

    This was a nice little book. I took a star away because some of the information was wrong, but overall it was entertaining. Most of the focus of this book concerns the history of Nintendo beginning with the arcades through the N64. There is some history of early Nintendo and some history of the gamecube and Wii era's but the bulk is what's in between. Overall it was a fun little book, if you were into games in the 70's - 90's you'll probably enjoy this book.

    In iLeadership, Jay Elliot gives the listener the opportunity of seeing Steve Jobs as only his closest associates have ever seen him, and to learn what has made him - and the mystique of his management style - capable of creating tools so extraordinary that they have remade three industries and have transformed the way we create, consume, and communicate with each other.

    David says: "a man who actually worked with Jobs"
    "Pretty good"

    Story

    If you're into tech this is a good read. I don't think it really teaches you a lot about leadership, but it is inspirational. It's pro apple and pro Steve Jobs, if you're looking for something more objective then look to the Steve Jobs biography. With that said, it's interesting and a good book. I've heard most of the stories before, but it was nice hearing them from someone close to Jobs, and it was neat to hear the perspective of someone who started businesses after being inspired by Jobs. Some of the stories had slight differences from the biography and other sources, such as the story of the twiggy drive for the mac.
