There’s much to consume here. At its core are 100 short biographies of influential people. There’s much to discuss. How did they come up with this list? Where’s Tim Cook? And if he is on the list, I couldn’t find him, which speaks to the clunky interface. Carl Icahn is on the list, but not Tim Cook? Hmm.
Culling the mass of humanity into a single list of the 100 most influential people in the world is no easy task. I did agree with most of the choices. What I really loved about this project is the people who actually wrote the prose that went along with each person.
Among the 100 bio writers were Sheryl Sandberg, Bill Gates, Chris Christie, Judd Apatow, Karl Rove, Michael Bloomberg, Stella McCartney, and Alice Park, just to name a few. The writers were as fascinating as the people they were profiling.
