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.

Let me start by saying that I am not typically a fan of biographies, but this one intrigued me. And after listening, all I can say is WOW! Steve Jobs was an amazing person, brash and difficult along the way, but still managed to inspire people to innovate in a way others couldn't. The story is incredibly well-written, and narrated by Dylan Baker in way that makes you want to keep listening. I give this 5 stars - start listening now! You won't be disappointed.

When the spirit of Lara's great-aunt Sadie - a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance - mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie's possession for more than 75 years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions.

I am a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella novels and have listed to all her audiobooks. I left this one for last because the title never really captured my attention. I have to tell you that I was VERY pleasantly surprised as I enjoyed this audiobook immensely. Like one of the other reviewers mentioned, you have to set aside the fact that Lara is in touch with the spirit of her Great Aunt Sadie. Lara really develops a believable relationship with her aunt and the story line involves mystery, romance, and above all, family values. A winner for sure! I highly recommend this novel!

The last few Women's Murder Series books were mediocre at best...finally, some time was spent on crafting an intersting story with suspense! Highly recommended!!!

Nice story, but predictable. Characters don't have much depth. Entertaining, but not my favorite Susan Elizabeth Phillips novel.

I have been listening to the Stephanie Plum series in order and this is the first story I have been somewhat disappointed with. Storyline was unrealistic and narrator was terrible! Voice does not fit the character at all. Bring back Debi Mazar please!
