Walter Isaacson did a fantastic job and I really enjoyed it.
However, I have to wonder what the audio producers were thinking. Dylan Baker put emphasis on the wrong words in many cases, used a grating voice, mispronounced common words (e.g. "intergrated"), and mispronounced words that are specific to Job's life (e.g. "OS Ex" for OS X--it's a Roman numeral!).
I really did enjoy it, but each time he said "intergrated," I felt slightly stupider for continuing to listen to this version. I'm certain that next time, I will pay more attention to the identity of the narrater before I purchase.
