about

This is the abridged audio version of Stephen Toulouse's "A Microsoft Life", with special guest appearences by many of Stephen's fellow performers, w00tstock friends, and video game industry folk.

If you enjoy geek culture, are at least curious as to how a pedigreed nerd could work at Microsoft for more than 15 years, and like spoken word humor, chances are you will enjoy this audiobook.

Included in the audiobook are several bonus features: Scans of the original cover to the book, a hidden blooper reel, a full copy of the text of the print version, and other materials.
