    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.

    What did you love best about Steve Jobs?

    Very well researched and honest portrait of an important visionary. I liked how the interviews with friends, colleagues and family was interwoven with Steve's own thoughts and story, making for a seamless and engaging read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lasseter, the inventor of Toy Story, for his passion and care for his


    What about Dylan Baker’s performance did you like?

    Perfect speed even for a non-native english speaker like me. Very clear and engaging.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nop, it is a somewhat dispassionate biography, even when talking about tough issues like Steve's cancer. It doesn't go for the cheese emotions. I liked that, actually. Made even more of an impression on me.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended. I was reading the Kindle version, and had to drive on a 8-9 hours trip and purchased the Audible version to keep going with the book, and it was the best thing I could do.

    What did you love best about The Element?

    Perfect mix of relevant testimonies, storytelling and inspiring ideas.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Element?

    Seeing my children (<1, 5, 8) with new eyes, imagining ways to expand their creativity, instead of pushing for learning more grammar or math :). Looking at school differently too now.


    Which character – as performed by Ken Robinson and Lou Aronica – was your favorite?

    There was no particular character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but couldn't :). It took me a few days to finish it, mostly while commuting to work and on a short trip.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not an english native speaker, so I was initially hesitant about this audiobook, being Sir Ken from England (which typically have a very different and harder to understand accent than americans). But having heard him in a Ted conference, I grew confident I'd understand him just fine.

    I was right. He has a perfect diction, even if he reads a bit fast, he's perfectly understandable for a non-native english speaker.
