    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Much of my time with this book in the car was spent arguing with the narrator. There were some pearls of wisdom, but I had to tolerate the europhile, ecologist, socialist political crap to get them.


    What was most disappointing about Hartmut Esslinger’s story?

    The loud political tone makes it hard to listen to the business and design wisdom.He should have kept his political manifesto separate from his business advice.

  • Einstein: His Life and Universe

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 30 mins)
    • By Walter Isaacson
    • Narrated By Edward Herrmann

    Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Einstein to be better than the print version?

    I bought this on the strength of Isaacson's Steve Jobs biography, and I was not disappointed.

    Not only do I have a fuller understanding of what Einstein stood for, but I also have a much richer understanding of his science.

    This was a great listen. I heartily recommend it.
