    Story

    If you are well read on Apple and Steve Jobs the concepts expressed in the first couple chapters of this book are just repeat performances with very little new concepts.

    The reason that I say in the first few chapters is that I could not listen to any more of the book than that because the reader sounds like a cheap rip off of Captain Kirk.

    I wish you could return books that you do not listen to a certain percentage of, this would have been one of them after the first chapter.

    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

    I had owned several iPods, iPhones and two different version of the iPad; but after listening to this was inspired to get my first MacBook Pro.

    I was impressed by the balance in the story telling presenting both Job's genius and flaws and I was inspired to be better in business and better as a father after the experience.

  • Insanely Simple: The Obsession that Drives Apple's Success

    Simplicity isn’t just a design principle at Apple - it’s a value that permeates every level of the organization. The obsession with Simplicity is what separates Apple from other technology companies. It’s what helped Apple recover from near death in 1997 to become the most valuable company on Earth in 2011. Thanks to Steve Jobs’s uncompromising ways, you can see Simplicity in everything Apple does: the way it’s structured, the way it innovates, and the way it speaks to its customers.

    This was a great follow up to listening to Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. It seemed to get into a specific component of the Steve Jobs story and add to it in a way that was compelling and different.

    From the author who's inspired millions worldwide with books like Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven comes his most imaginative novel yet, The Time Keeper--a compelling fable about the first man on earth to count the hours.

    Mitch Albom has come through with another winner. The message is great and while I am a novice when it comes to audio books, I can hardly imagine a better performance.
