    These selections from the many writings of Thomas Sowell over a period of half a century cover social, economic, cultural, legal, educational, and political issues. The sources range from Dr. Sowell’s letters, books, newspaper columns, and articles in both scholarly journals and popular magazines. The topics range from latetalking children to tax cuts for the rich, baseball, race, war, the role of judges, medical care, and the rhetoric of politicians.

    Story
    (9621)

    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.

    Chris says: "Good Biography, Fine narrator"
    "Business story."

    Where does Steve Jobs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right in the middle.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Walter Isaacson? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would. I like the author. The story is written in a very clear manner, especially when intricate situations are explained.


    What does Dylan Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He gives the book life with his tone and his cadence. I really enjoyed his voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No, nothing moved me in this story.


    Any additional comments?

    Now I have a better idea of the personality of Jobes and the way his business story developed.
