    Story
    (88)

    The critically acclaimed novelist and social critic Aldous Huxley, describes his personal experimentation with the drug mescaline and explores the nature of visionary experience. The title of this classic comes from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell: "If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern."

    Story
    (11204)

    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.

    Would you listen to Steve Jobs again? Why?

    Probably not but i don't read books twice. Once you've truly lived through an experience then you don't need to do it again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Steve's indomitable spirit.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    any of the scenes when steve said. let me show you how to do it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    pretty extreme. I loved and hated steve at different points in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read for anyone who was alive during the same time as Steve was. So that you can see what your fellow human being are up to.

    New York Times best-selling author Jim Harrison is one of America's most beloved writers, and of all his creations, Brown Dog - a bawdy, reckless, down-on-his-luck Michigan Indian - has earned cult status with readers in the more than two decades since his first appearance. For the first time, Brown Dog gathers all the Brown Dog novellas, including one never before published, into one volume - the ideal introduction (or reintroduction) to Harrison's irresistible Everyman.
