    When it comes to creating ideas, we hold ourselves back. Thats because inside each of us is an internal editor whose job is to forever polish our thoughts, so we sound smart and in control, and so that we fit into society. But what happens when we encounter problems for which such conventional thinking fails us? How do we get unstuck? For Mark Levy, the answer is freewriting....

    Overall

    The narration really got on my nerves. I can't put my finger on exactly why it bothered me, other than I found myself scowling every time Bronson Pinchot put the emphasis on the wrong part of a sentence. It would have been much more enjoyable with a more professional/experienced narrator. That aside, the book itself is slanted toward business, but the ideas are inspirational from a more general viewpoint as well.

    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.

    Pretty disappointed overall. The reader's voice and inflection keeps knocking me out of an otherwise interesting story. Hope I can make it all the way through. I wonder if it's possible to return audiobooks? Maybe I should go for the print version.
