    Story
    (10335)

    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.

  • The Demon Under The Microscope

    Story
    (1125)

    The Nazis discovered it. The Allies won the war with it. It conquered diseases, changed laws, and single-handedly launched the era of antibiotics. This incredible discovery was sulfa, the first antibiotic medication. In The Demon Under the Microscope, Thomas Hager chronicles the dramatic history of the drug that shaped modern medicine.

    Sara says: "A fantastic book"
    "Must read for those interested in drug discovery!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Demon Under The Microscope the most enjoyable?

    What a great story of perseverance! Fantastic example of a few men willing and able to change the world and not letting anyone telling them it was impossible. This is perhaps, the story that shaped healthcare the most this past century. It gives a great peek into the process of drug development pre-WWII which was unregulated and free wheeling. Yet at the same time drug discovery itself is done in essentially the exact same manner!
