Good account of Jeff's life is captured. I expect book needs to be with more events of his life. Book length to be in the range of 3 to 3.5 hours.
Overall book is good but very short.

Over 5,000 years, India has been home to a rich tapestry of peoples and cultures. Two of the world's great religions - Hinduism and Buddhism - have their origins in South Asia, and the lands east of the Indus River have long been a central hub for trade, migration, and cultural exchange. Today the subcontinent contains 20 percent of the world's population and is a thriving center for global business, making this region one of most significant economic powerhouses in the world.

This book did not cover great personalities and great traditions of India. Like Yoga and meditation developed in India is well respected all over world but did not appear in this book. Great persons including Nobel laurets in various fields didn't have mention. Persons like Dr. C V Raman, Hargobindd Khorana, Rabindranatdh Tagore and others. ISRO done such a great job, now India is a fourth nation in the world to send rocket to Mars.
Greats persons like Aryabhatta who invented Zero not even mentioned.
Dr. Abdul Kalam who became the president of India in spite of being from minority community is not mentioned, this shows how well they get respect in India. President is the highest position in India.
Hours together discussed glorified history of mogul and British rule.
Much better things than Tajmahal with so much development work happening in India Better photograph should have been selected.
I hope in next revision author will take these points into consideration.

Hear Steve Jobs introduce the iPhone, Lee Iacocca hold forth on the topic of Japanese trade, Warren Buffett's thoughts on the financial future of America's youth, and Jack Welch at his final management meeting as CEO of General Electric. These are just four of the 14 speeches in this amazing collection.

There should have been brief introduction of the each speaker before the speech commences.
80 percent of the speeches are good. One lady speech is not clear, name of the speaker could not be made out, speech should have been more objective.
