    Story

    From the acclaimed Vanity Fair and GQ journalist - an unprecedented, in-depth portrait of the man whose return to Apple precipitated one of the biggest turnarounds in business history.

    Thomas says: "Awesome background on Apple, NeXT, and Pixar."
    "The Second Coming of Steve Jobs"
    Overall

    When I purchased this audiobook, I didn't realize that it was first published in 2000. For those interested in learning about Steve Jobs impact on the music industry with his fee-per-song service and the iPod, you will not find it in this book. However, if you would like to hear about the rebirth of Apple and his involvement with Pixar, this will provide for interesting listening. Depending upon your interest level in Steve Jobs and your tolerance for typical biographical criticism of a subject, you may need to tune out certain parts where the author dishes out his negative views of Steve's character. Also, if you are interested in an evaluation of the technology that changed Apple and led to its rebirth, you will not find it in this book. The author brushes over the redesign of the Mac, spending more time on Steve's personality than the product.

  • What Should I Do with My Life? The True Story of People Who Answered the Ultimate Question

    Best selling author Po Bronson began work on What Should I Do with My Life? at a time when he was asking himself that very question. For answers, he crossed the landscape of America to find people who have struggled to unearth their true calling - people of all ages, classes, and professions who have found fulfillment: those who fought with the seduction of money, intensity, and novelty and overcame their allure; those who broke away from the chorus to learn the sound of their own voice.

    J. Yoon says: "A bit childish"
    "Po Bronson"
    Overall

    I disagree with the other reviews. Perhaps it is because I heard an excerpt of Po's book on NPR and knew it to be what it is. It not a self-help book, but a personal journal of his experiences with people as they make life decisions. I found it rather interesting and enjoyable. One additional note: I began my career in public accounting and found Po's narration on his first job at a litigation consulting firm to be eerily similar to my experience.
