    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

    Overall amazing story of a visionary man.

    Unfortunately this book seemed like it had been rushed out due to Job's death. Not as finely honed as an author of this caliber should be producing. Ideas were repeated to the point of me shouting out loud "Alright I get it!"

    I listen to a lot of biography audio-books and Dylan Baker is by far the worst reader I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. He sounds like he's reading a bedtime story to a 3 year old. Truly annoying.

    Fortunately the amazing arc of this story over-rides these problems and ultimately it was a fascinating look into a brilliant life.
