    In iLeadership, Jay Elliot gives the listener the opportunity of seeing Steve Jobs as only his closest associates have ever seen him, and to learn what has made him - and the mystique of his management style - capable of creating tools so extraordinary that they have remade three industries and have transformed the way we create, consume, and communicate with each other.

    David says: "a man who actually worked with Jobs"
    "The term "iLeadership" makes me cringe."
    Overall

    It's nicely written and superby read. I disliked the whole "iLeadership" concept though and felt that was a bit forced and unnecessary. It works best when it doesn't try to be profound and comprehensive - just the little human anecdotes are very revealing and useful. I was also unsure of how recently Elliot was at Apple - I got the impression the book went from an insider's point of view in the '80s to just an informed commentator through the major iPod/Pad/Phone era.

  • Uncertainty: Einstein, Heisenberg, Bohr, and the Struggle for the Soul of Science

    Werner Heisenberg's "uncertainty principle" challenged centuries of scientific understanding, placed him in direct opposition to Albert Einstein, and put Niels Bohr in the middle of one of the most heated debates in scientific history. Heisenberg's theorem stated that there were physical limits to what we could know about sub-atomic particles; this "uncertainty" would have shocking implications.

    Ryan says: "fascinating insight into the real drama of physics"
    "I'd hoped for more theory, but still very good."
    Overall

    I think I would have liked more theoretical explanation amongst the narrative, but I got a lot out of this book and would probably listen to it again sometime.
