Isaacson’s authorized biography of the founder of Apple Computers draws upon 40 interviews with Steve Jobs as well as 100 interviews with Jobs’s friends, co-workers, and adversaries. Surprisingly, the notoriously secretive Jobs was the biography’s biggest advocate, lobbying Isaacson repeatedly to work on the project. Besides Jobs’s personal development, Isaacson also charts the growth of the tech industry in Northern California and the numerous moguls who worked alongside and clashed with Jobs. Dylan Baker’s narration is straightforward and precise, and maintains listener interest throughout—even during sections of text that detail the dryer aspects of the industry. Though numerous individuals discuss Jobs, Baker doesn’t attempt to differentiate their voices. Still, it’s always clear who is speaking, which proves a testament to Baker’s abilities as a reader and Isaacson’s clarity as a writer. A Simon & Schuster hardcover. (Oct.)
