    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.

    Chris says: "Good Biography, Fine narrator"
    "Compelling--if cursory--story, but the narration.."

    Story

    The narrator was fine, but there were regular pronunciation problems. When Jobs is diagnosed with an islet (pronounced EYE-let) cell tumor, he says IZZ-let. Huh? When he mentions Mac OS X, he says "mac oh ess eks," rather than the "oh ess ten" that Jobs himself used (and that any Mac will use if you ask it to speak that phrase). Then there's "robutt." The narrator speaks of "robutts" instead of robots. Distracting. Regardless, the narration is crisp and generally easy to listen to. Fortunately, the story is very engaging, especially if you grew up during the PC revolution. About the worst I could say about the story is that I was left wanting for more detail.
