Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, narrated by Dylan Baker
Published in audio by Simon Audio
From the publisher:
Based on more than forty interviews with the co-founder of Apple conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson’s STEVE JOBS is the riveting biography 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. Narrated by Dylan Baker (The Good Wife) with an introduction from Isaacson, this audiobook is an instructive and cautionary tale, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values.
Although I’m not a huge Apple person, I’m fascinated by the company, ethos, and intense following that Steve Jobs created. I’m an equal fan of Walter Isaacson, whose Benjamin Franklin: An American Life I loved. Whether you’re an Apple fan or simply interested in entrepreneurship, Steve Jobs is a must-read. Or even better, be read to by Dylan Baker:
