Quite Interesting      source
I’m fascinated by the discussion of how Jobs developed what became known as the Reality Distortion Field. Apparently Jobs had a lifelong battle with reality and won.      source
I read @WalterIsaacson’ biography on Steve Jobs a few years ago. Then I listened to his book on @doudna_lab. Simply brilliant. Thus had to listen to his book on Leonardo da Vinci. Fantastic. Now ordering his biographies on Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein. 🙏🙏🙏      source
@thejakeharrison Great book!      source
For Chesky, a source may come in the form of a biography of a business hero such as Steve Jobs or Walt Disney.      source
Non-work books I've read that I recommend      source
When I read this book I was so blown away. I had underlined about three-quarters of the book.      source
Really did a good job of capturing the way that an innovation leader’s mind works.      source
