Biography & Memoir • 25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

This authorized, highly discussed work delivers significant details of Jobs’s secretive life, career, and creative sensibility. The author delivers his introduction. Formerly in leadership roles at CNN and TIME magazine, Isaacson has created a well-researched and balanced biography that emphasizes Jobs’s mammoth ambition, genius, and brutal honesty. Dylan Baker’s earnestness is expressed in a workmanlike narration. His style is not well matched to the urgency of Jobs’s fascinating life story and the relentlessness of his personality. Without vocal characterizations, Baker’s pacing is consistent, if too slow. Perhaps an unfortunate, if unspoken, message is that, with great genius, boorish behavior with staff, family, and others may ultimately lead to phenomenal innovative and artful business success.
