    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.

    David says: "Don't bother with the abridged version"
    "Worthwhile this abridged version!"

    A very interesting book, gave me a good overview on Jobs's thoughts and beliefs. As an IT professional, and an apple (recent) user, it was really worthwhile listening to this audiobook.

    It was a world gone wrong, one in which manufacturers thought little of manipulating product quality levels in order to save the smallest amounts, where savvy foreign business leaders were made to feel in control while they were taken for a ride by their partners, where entire manufacturing facilities sometimes vanished right into thin air... Welcome to Poorly Made in China!

    In 2010 world-renowned innovation expert Clayton M. Christensen gave a powerful speech to the Harvard Business School's graduating class. Drawing upon his business research, he offered a series of guidelines for finding meaning and happiness in life. He used examples from his own experiences to explain how high achievers can all too often fall into traps that lead to unhappiness. Full of inspiration and wisdom, this book will help students, midcareer professionals, and parents alike forge their own paths to fulfillment.

    Story

    To think about the path we are taking in our lives and have some ideas about how to ask ourselves if we are doing what we really want to do. Good analogies with business language and models.

    The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

    Peter says: "Brilliant, insightful, intriguing."
    "Very good, tell us about before and after GenghisK"

    Story

    Very interesting and enriching. Learn about history on Asia and importance of Genghis Khan and Mongol Empire. A little too long sometimes, but worthwhile to listen from beginning to end.

    Harvard Business School is the iconic business school. An admission ticket to HBS is a hot commodity and an HBS degree is highly respected in the business world. This book, written by an HBS grad and seasoned businesswoman, tells you why. It is a distillation of the most valuable and pragmatic but yet easiest to learn concepts taught at HBS.

    Mohammed says: "Three stars"
    "Good book on briefing what HBS is about."

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"
    "Very interisting, definitely worthwhile"

    Story
    If you could sum up Outliers in three words, what would they be?

    This book is about how success depends on many factors, like family, culture, chance and some others.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Outliers?

    The match of birthdays respective to some entrepreneurs generations.
