#4 “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson
The gripping biography of the most prominent innovator of out time.
——- WHY THIS BOOK? ———
Parts goes to Isaacson for being able to write a 600 page book without any real low points, and parts goes to Steve for being such an interesting fella! Anyhow – it’s just an excellent biography!
————— IMPACT —————
These is something with the intensity and focus with which Steve engaged with the world that I find truly fascinating. That’s what I’m taking away from this book.
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”

“Einstein: His Life and Universe“ by Walter Isaacson (Audio / Paperback)
I read a lot of really good biographies this year, making this a tough category for me. But I think “Einstein” deserves the top spot. Most biographies have one or more parts, even the really good ones, where you lose interest because connect with certain aspects of that persons life.
“Einstein” didn’t have that even though it’s a brick of a book. It phenomenal from start to finish.

After reading several of his earlier works (Franklin, Einstein & Jobs) I can’t wait to get my hands in Walter Isaacsons Leonardo Da Vinci biography!
