    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

    I agree completely with one of the previous reviewers. This is a terrific book, but the reader is absolutely awful, especially when he's trying to intone statements made by Steve Jobs. Trying to create a caricature is a good way of describing it. I found it almost unlistenable , the voice was so annoying throughout. I can't understand how in the world Mr. Baker ever got the gig to record one of the most anticipated biographies of recent years. I would have preferred either the author or someone with a depth of character and nuance to their voice, instead of this reedy-voiced nails-on-a-chalkboard narrator. An extremely disappointing performance! Dear Simon & Schuster/Audible- PLEASE have this re-recorded! I'll even buy it twice just to get the new version!
