    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

    Has the reader ever heard Steve Jobs speak? Given the prominence of Jobs, one might expect that the reader would be familiar with Jobs's personality and speaking style, and that this knowledge would inform how the reader delivered direct quotes from Jobs. But no; the lines are spoken in an irritating and incongruous tone that bears no resemblance whatsoever to Jobs. It sounds as if the reader was deliberately trying to caricature his subject.

    This is a well written and thoughtful book but I'm having a frustrating time listening to it. I might just buy it in paper simply to avoid listening to the dreadful Dylan Baker.
