When the San Jos mine collapsed outside of Copiap Chile in August 2010 it trapped thirty-three miners beneath thousands of feet of rock for a record-breaking sixty-nine days The entire world watched what transpired above-ground during the grueling and protracted rescue but the saga of the miners experiences below the Earth s surface and the lives that led them there has never been heard until now For Deep Down Dark the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist H ctor Tobar received exclusive access to the miners and their tales These thirty-three men came to think of the mine a cavern inflicting constant and thundering aural torment as a kind of coffin and as a church where they sought redemption through prayer Even while still buried they all agreed that if by some miracle any of them escaped alive they would share their story only collectively H ctor Tobar was the person they chose to hear and now to tell that story The result is a masterwork or narrative journalism a riveting at times shocking emotionally textured account of a singular human event Deep Down Dark brings to haunting tactile life the experience of being imprisoned inside a mountain of stone the horror of being slowly consumed by hunger and the spiritual and mystical... elements that surrounded working in such a dangerous place In its stirring final chapters it captures the profound way in which the lives of everyone involved in the disaster were forever changed more
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
