    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

    Great story - even though Steve Jobs is a cultural icon I really did not know the details, and found his story fascinating. His hand was in everything Apple and I wonder if Apple will continue to be the media leader it has been without his vision.
    The narration sometimes seemed mechanical, however I recommend this book; the story keeps one's interest.

    Stoneybridge is a small town on the west coast of Ireland where all the families know one another. When Chicky Starr decides to take an old, decaying mansion set high on the cliffs overlooking the windswept Atlantic Ocean and turn it into a restful place for a holiday by the sea, everyone thinks she is crazy. Helped by Rigger (a bad boy turned good who is handy around the house) and Orla, her niece (a whiz at business), Chicky is finally ready to welcome the first guests to Stone House’s big warm kitchen, log fires, and understated elegant bedrooms.

    It is a nice story even if a little contrived. Enjoyable escape read. Would recommend it to a friend.

    The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume in the trilogy, tells of the fateful power of the One Ring. It begins a magnificent tale of adventure that will plunge the members of the Fellowship of the Ring into a perilous quest and set the stage for the ultimate clash between the powers of good and evil.

    Story

    I have read this book several times - listened to full cast reading of the book and of course loved the film - Thought I might be overdoing it ordering yet another telling of this classic but absolutely enchanted by this audible book. I highly recommend it whether you've never read the book or have read it 100 time.

    It’s the early 1980s—the country is in a deep recession, and life after college is harder than ever. In the cafés on College Hill, the wised-up kids are inhaling Derrida and listening to Talking Heads. But Madeleine Hanna, dutiful English major, is writing her senior thesis on Jane Austen and George Eliot, purveyors of the marriage plot that lies at the heart of the greatest English novels.

    I haven't even finished this book, but I stayed up most of last night listening I was so engaged. I only forced myself to turn it off to insure I could function today. Cannot wait until later so I can continue listening.
