My friend Tim S and I are wondering if either of them were/are fans of Orson Scott Card’s Speaker for the Dead. After re-listening to this amazing SciFi book I can’t get this thought out of my head. It’s like Jobs set up Isaacson to be his “Speaker” and Isaacson did a masterful work.
On another note — If you like SciFi and Audiobooks — the whole 20th anniversary edition of the “Enders Game” four book “trilogy” is as good as it gets.
