    2015 Audie Award Finalist for Non-Fiction

    Following his blockbuster biography of Steve Jobs, The Innovators is Walter Isaacson’s revealing story of the people who created the computer and the Internet. It is destined to be the standard history of the digital revolution and an indispensable guide to how innovation really happens. 

    What were the talents that allowed certain inventors and entrepreneurs to turn their visionary ideas into disruptive realities? What led to their creative leaps? Why did some succeed and others fail? 

    In his masterly saga, Isaacson begins with Ada Lovelace, Lord Byron’s daughter, who pioneered computer programming in the 1840s. He explores the fascinating personalities that created our current digital revolution, such as Vannevar Bush, Alan Turing, John von Neumann, J.C.R. Licklider, Doug Engelbart, Robert Noyce, Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, Tim Berners-Lee, and Larry Page. 

    This is the story of how their minds worked and what made them so inventive. It’s also a narrative of how their ability to collaborate and master the art of teamwork made them even more creative. 

    For an era that seeks to foster innovation, creativity, and teamwork, The Innovators shows how they happen.

    Innovations since the beginning of time

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    This was somewhat more than I wanted to know about how computers got started .... The book starts with the mechanical calculators and somewhere during chapter eight we reach 1950. As far as informative books about a topic go, this is probably fairly complete. I was looking more for the interactions which led to the products I currently use starting somewhere in 1970. This feels more like a textbook. The only other book I read by Walter Isaacson is the Steve Jobs biography which I found a lot more stimulating.

    amazing detail and still easy to follow

    Walter Isaacson should make a sequel starting from 1980 to 2018 covering such aspects as the commercialisation of the internet, Web 1.0, Web 2.0, smart phones, IoT, and the cryptocurrencies & blockchain and the possibility of a Web 3.0 (decentralized again). He could include such figures as Andreesen, Bezos, Zuckerberg, Musk, Thiel, Satoshi Nakamoto, Vitalik Buterin, Jack Ma.... That would be so great!

    Interessant, aber zäh.

    Mit diesem Hörbuch lernt man viel über die digitale Revolution. Doch man muss aufmerksam zuhören, gerade zu Beginn. Es werden ziemlich viele Personen und Fakten hintereinander aufgezählt, was das Folgen der eigentlichen Geschichte etwas erschwert.
