Ms. Brown goes on, and on, and on about different crimes committed in various parts of the country, ie, 'a southern state, a midwest state, etc. Why she just doesn't name the state the crime occurred in bewildered me. She spends a great deal of time denigrating the local police and prosecuters but guess what? She doesn't solve one crime using her "profiling" expertise. Not a single perpetrator is prosecuted, let alone convicted. I began to wonder if Time-Life offered a book series on criminal profiling and Ms. Brown took it! Whatever you paid for this book, It is worth more to give it back.
No other narrator could have saved this mess!
Not anytime soon!
Not unless the quality improves.
It wasn't LaVoy's fault, she did the best she could with this oinker.
Patterson is obviously more concerned with raking in as much cash as possible at the expense of quality. I guess he needs a new jet or needs to refurnish the Florida mansion. This drivel does not come close to his earlier Alex Cross books. The characters are shallow, the story line is totally implausible, and I don't like the way Patterson and Paetro portray their characters as the absolutely finest people in the world and every one outside their circle as morons, crooks, lowlifes or scumbags. When the female FBI agent tried to give a baby gift to the Boxer character and she dumped it in the trash after the agent left, I turned off my iPod and screamed, "NO MORE"!! I have never been a huge fan of the Women's Murder Club series. but this trash was bad even for it! In the future, I'll stick with John Sanford. Both his Prey series and his Virgil Flowers series are wonderful reads. I guess he doesn't need the money as much as Patterson. Ugh!
The moment David Romero shot Dos and was then shot by Martinez
I like his ability to carry the listener into the action.
The ending could have been better, It should have told more of the story of the ramaining gold.
Not much. He was, without a doubt, the straw that stirred the drink at Apple, but at the same time he was a horrible human being who treated the people in his life as well as his employees as little more than dirt. He cried and threw tantrums when he didn't get his way and was a master manipulator. Macheavelli would have loved Steve Jobs.. Jobs' ego ultimately killed him as it disconnected him from the reality of his cancer. When he finally got a grip on reality, it was too late. His story could have been written by Shakespeare. I bought an iPhone shortly before strarting Isaacson's book and mentioned to my wife that had I read the book first I wouldn't have bought any Apple product.
When he returned to Apple and brought it back from the brink.
The last encounter between Jobs and Bill Gates.
A Twenty-First Century Shakespeare Tragedy!
Isaacson did a magnificent job of weaving the entire tapestry of Jobs' life, warts and all. An excellant work of literature, it truly makes us examine why we hold these people in such high regard, giving them a pass on being total jerks because they produce beautiful objects that we can't seem to live without.
