QUIRKY The Remarkable Story of the Traits, Foibles, and Genius of Breakthrough Innovators Who Changed the World

by | Read by Erin Bennett

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Steve Jobs didn't have furniture in his home, and Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway, bought his own island. Scientists Albert Einstein and Marie Curie were both introverts. The author guides listeners through the lives of innovators past and present to show the differences that drove them. Erin Bennett narrates with admiration for the "sheer force of will" that helped Elon Musk develop reusable rockets. Bennett delivers a lively reading of the innovators' biographies. The author uses the life stories to illustrate traits such as idealism or openness to experience. The stories will be familiar to listeners with a knowledge of history or business news. Still, anyone who needs a boost might like being reminded of these innovators' persistence when others might have given up. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
