    Story
    (10236)

    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
    Where does Steve Jobs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the very best I've had. i purchased the full version, 25 hours. I can't put it down.


    What did you like best about this story?

    We're about to enter a brand new era. I'm so excited I can hardly sleep. Having a 25 hour history lesson on the most successful corporation on our planet is probably the smartest thing I could possibly do.i'm a couple years older than Steve Jobs was but I still remember a lot of the stories.Jobs is a hero to me as are Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendrix, and Joni Mitchell.I was involved in the software industry since the 1970's. Knowing paradigms are being broken and new discoveries are in front of me is absolutely thrilling.


    What about Dylan Baker’s performance did you like?

    his voice and inflection is great.


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

    The Visionary Antagonist or Visionary Messiah.


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE send me to Wozniak. I'm disabled and want somebody provide assistance inventing wireless products to monitor my wheelchair battery, charging status, etc. There are so many things to be invented for disabled and I need help getting this stuff going.i wear a Bionic leg implant and the manufacturer has used $56 Million of investor funds without a single production item. The technology to bring that device to the marketplace is here... I WEAR IT. and during the clinical trial I left my wheelchair and walked 10m in 15 seconds.

    Will some one please refer me?

    Story
    (419)

    In this revolutionary look at the brain, best-selling author, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., introduces both the brilliant scientists championing this new science of neuroplasticity and the astonishing progress of the people whose lives they've transformed.

    Introducing principles we can all use, as well as a riveting collection of case histories, The Brain That Changes Itself has "implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history."
