Compare and contrast in clear idiomatic English:
Nocera’s piece is all about what Isaacson was unable to accomplish (“In ‘Steve Jobs,’ Walter Isaacson has recounted a life — a big, sprawling, amazing life. It is a serious accomplishment. What remains for future biographers is to make sense of that life.”)
Dowd’s piece, by contrast, is a juicy jangle of the buzzy bits.
Talk among yourselves.
