    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    I stopped halfway through this one, I really honestly thought it would be much better given the fact I love Tina's writing on 30 Rock and others, but after listening through some 15 or 16 chapters I just got fed up with the huge amount of sarcasm.

    It does provide a few funny moments, and it might even get better towards the end if you stick with it, but I didn't.

    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"

    Story

    The title does provide a nice account of the history of Apple, including detailing some of the detours from Jobs at NeXT and Pixar.

    But it markets itself as a view into the leadership ways of Steve Jobs, and though it does mention lots of tidbits related, most of the time it just ends up as some sort of shrine for him: "only Steve Jobs could have done this", "only Steve Jobs could have thought this", etc.

    I haven't read it yet, but I bet Isaacson's official biography is probably a much better read than this, both for people interested in his life and for people interested in his leadership skills.
