Here’s what’s new in Microsoft Store this week:
Need a good book? Check out Walter Isaacson’s reading list in the Microsoft Store
Walter Isaacson is one of today’s most influential writers, authoring bestselling biographies about luminaries past (Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin) and present (Steve Jobs). What’s on Isaacson’s reading list? Some very interesting volumes, indeed, which is why we’ve made his reading list our latest eBooks collection in the Microsoft Store.*
The Walter Isaacson Collection features titles including Heroes of the Frontier, where Dave Eggers tells the story of a 30-something woman turning her back on convention and heading to Alaska to start life over. In Fantasyland, Kurt Andersen traces America’s relationship with false facts and delusion over the past 500 years. The fascinating, brilliant man behind just about everything important in the Information Age is profiled in
A Mind at Play: How Claude Shannon Invented the Information Age, by Jimmy Soni and Rob Goodman, and in Madison Park, Eric Motley tells how his upbringing in a small Alabama town founded by freed slaves gave him his deep belief in the American Dream.
Check out the complete Walter Isaacson Collection here, and don’t miss Walter’s personal reviews on each title’s page in the Microsoft Store.
Have a great weekend!
