    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.

    Story

    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.
