    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.

    Any additional comments?

    This story is interesting, if a bit repetitive. The main points about Jobs' essential character are repeated, and repeated. The rest is mostly a timeline. Fortunately Jobs himself is a fascinating fixture that made a huge impact on not just computing but the way humans interact with their machines.

    I found the narrator's style nearly un-listenable and just had the whole thing play at 2x speed. This helps with the narrators unnecessary dramatic over-enunciation. Someone more matter-of-fact, or just a simpler delivery style would have been much more appropriate, and, well, Jobsian.
