    In Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography, Walter Isaacson provides an extraordinary account of Jobs' professional and personal life. Drawn from three years of exclusive and unprecedented interviews Isaacson has conducted with Jobs as well as extensive interviews with Jobs' family members and key colleagues from Apple and its competitors, this is the definitive portrait of the greatest innovator of his generation.

    Story

    I LOVE everything about this book. It is one of the most influential books I've read/ listened to in my life if not the top one. The book is balanced between personal anecdotes, business experiences and technical stuff. Actually it is not very technical. It is not only a good account of how the information age came into being but it also tells us in detail how Jobs influenced many industries with absolute drive, beauty and passion.

    As I mention in the headline Jobs' life would make for an excellent fiction book. But it is REAL LIFE. I do not want to go into the details; for me it was fascinating to learn who he dealt with, from Woz to John Sculley to President Obama to Michael Eisner. It is not only WHAT we know, but WHO we know. He attracted artists, musicians, business people in his life just because of his drive and knowledge. His passion for excellence and beauty were non-stop; it is a good business tale on how to accomplish outstanding goals in the midst of chaos, economic crisis in Apple in addition to being stricken with cancer.

    For me Jobs is an eample of determination. He never, never, never gave up.

    Amazing!

    Dylan Baker does an EXCELLENT job. I thank him. Very subtle and clear. An excellent narration.

    I`ve recommended it/ given it to many friends, family. Everybody has enjoyed it!

    James Allen was one of the leaders of the New Thought school, which emphasized the power of positive thinking to improve one's life. He wrote many inspirational and thought-provoking books that have been enjoyed by millions and continue to be popluar today. This is his most famous work and is now considered a classic of self-help literture.

    I got to this book thru a quote by Dale Carnegie. Unfortunately it is too dry for me. I just could not listen to all of it. I consider myself a better listener than reader but I just could not finish it.
