    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.

    Chris says: "Good Biography, Fine narrator"
    "Number one in its class."

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

    Yes the narrator let you get to know each person as an individual.


    What other book might you compare Steve Jobs to and why?

    Fredrick Douglas was almost as good. He also contributed a great deal for the American people.


    Have you listened to any of Dylan Baker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will look for him in the feature.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did both. But most of all I got to know an outstanding man in Steve Jobs.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read book. It started out a little slow, but, I am glad I didn't put it down. People know Steve as a co-founder of Apple. But after reading this book. He was so much more. This guy was driven to be the best, He succeded. He cannot be replaced.

    From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, there have been more than two dozen assassination attempts on the President of the United States. Four have been successful. But now, Beecher White - the hero of the number one New York Times best seller The Inner Circle - discovers a killer in Washington, D.C. who's meticulously re-creating the crimes of these four men. Historians have branded them as four lone wolves. But what if they were wrong?
