In this article:

5. Mountain Biking


6. Yoga

“I try to do it five or six days a week. I do it all: hot yoga, power yoga, bizarre Forrest yoga. I don’t think I really breathed before yoga.”

7. Kids’ Apps

“I have great apps for my four-year-old, Lydia. ‘My First Words, Animals’ shows a picture of an animal, like a lion. You slide the tiles to spell lion, then it roars.”

8. Steve Jobs

“I’m reading his biography by Walter Isaacson. Jobs reminds me how important it is to make something better and better each day.”

9. Menswear

“I’m really into fashion. I love the shirts from Piombo—their cut and the way they fit. And I always check out The Sartorialist blog.”

10. Gibson Guitar

“I play a little bit. I have a 1976 Gibson Custom L-5 with a sunburst finish. I’ll plug it in, put on some Wilco and sing along.”
