First time listening to Baker. At first I didnt care for him, and then he warms up on you. A couple of hours into the book I got used to his tone and and his performance.
Way to long to swallow in one sitting.
I enjoyed how Isaacson discussed Jobs and Apple by both chronological order and the product lines. He mixes the two approaches very well and that keeps a long book very interesting.
This is the second lecture I purchased from professor McWhorter. If you are a believer in the philosophy "take classes from great teachers, regardless of the subject" you will not be dissapointed. I listened to one of his other linguistic lectures and I was so happy with his performance and presentation I was compelled to try one of his other lectures. He is able to convey a great deal of information in a casual and entertaining series. One of the best I have listened to from learning company.
I wish he had some of his other books available in audio format.
The lecture is broken down into nice 30 minute segments / topics. He covers history in both a chronological order and then he comes back with topics that emphasize specific points. I enjoyed the lecture as much as a good history book - a nice additional option fro audible.
Very Interesting subject. 5 hour book would have covered it. At 11 hours the subject gets too drawn out to maintain your interest.
