Jeffrey Young treads some well-worn ground here, recounting the rise of Apple Computer, Microsoft, and the Internet. But he brings enough fresh material, tight and entertaining writing, and new insights to make it worth a listen. The program is divided into three segments: Steve Jobs and Apple, Bill Gates and Microsoft, and the story of how computer networking evolved into the Internet. Reader Michael McConnohie's pleasant, crisp, and entertaining delivery adds substantially to the experience. The CD format creates pristine audio quality, and McConnohie's precise but soothing voice is perfect. Young treats technical subjects in a refreshingly intelligent way without losing anyone.
