Audible pick of the week: Becoming Steve Jobs

Becoming Steve Jobs by Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli, narrated by: George Newbern.

Not clear we need yet another book about Steve Jobs. But here it is. The official biography is better, especially if you’re more interested in the products he made and less interested in a tortured rewriting of history.
