    From the start, his path was never predictable. Steve Jobs was given up for adoption at birth, dropped out of college after one semester, and at the age of 20, created Apple in his parents' garage with his friend Steve Wozniack. Then came the core and hallmark of his genius - his exacting insistence on perfection, his counterculture life approach, and his level of taste and style that pushed all boundaries.

    Where does Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is truly unique, I have never listened to a biography before, thus was a great , intriguing and entertaining pick for my first experience


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was like being there as a fly on the wall throughout the life of Steve, to find out what drove this man to do what he did is quite inspiring, this title really captures the essence of that


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I really enjoyed the way he nailed the " authentic feeling" of the context of literally every paragraph. It was just right. Great job Sean!


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

    When he sat in his car and said " if this was my last night on earth..would I want to spend it at some meeting, or with this women ...and he asked her (Powell) out to dinner :)


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely fascinating to get an insiders look at the struggles, successes, and events that shaped a mans destiny to literally change the world

  • Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

    By forcing us to apply a more selective criteria for what is Essential, the disciplined pursuit of less empowers us to reclaim control of our own choices about where to spend our precious time and energy - instead of giving others the implicit permission to choose for us. Essentialism is not one more thing - it’s a whole new way of doing everything. It’s about doing less, but better, in every area of our lives. Essentialism is a movement whose time has come.

    I now have some practical words and decisions to contemplate the next time I am asked to be a part of something that I'm not sure is of my highest contribution in life

    Thanks Greg , going to listen to this one several times over, great wisdom!
