    Nick and her cousin Helena grew up in a world of sun bleached boat docks, tennis whites, and midnight gin parties at Tiger House, the family home on Martha's Vineyard. In the wake of the Second World War, the two women are on the cusp of starting their "real lives": Helena is off to Hollywood and a new marriage to the charismatic Avery Lewis, while Nick is heading for a reunion with her own husband, Hughes Derringer, about to return from the war. The world seems rife with possibility, but the gilt soon begins to crack.

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Steve Jobs to be better than the print version?

    I personally enjoy audio better


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole story line


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

    I really did not care for his voice too much


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

    Toward the end when Stever Jobs is going thru his play list. It made him more human
