This is an excellent audio book that keeps up your interest all through it, as you compare what you do with what Steve Jobs did to capture and retain attention as well as exceed expectations of his listeners.
Simple but great ideas come up all through the book that will make you a better presenter.
I did not like this book. Part of the reason I think is legitimate for everyone. The book, while giving a couple of good, unique ideas, for the most part makes obvious points. Now, it does this by using examples from Steve Job's presentations. These real-life examples were need and added to the book.
However, the reason that I say take my review with a grain of salt may be because I was asking too much of this book. It may be that someone in the business world who does business-related presentations may find the ideas more useful. As a law professor, however, I did not find much that I feel like I could use in my day-to-day classroom interactions.
Looking to improve my life one audio book at a time @paulmmcaffrey
It provides great tips for building the perfect slideshow presentation and delivering it
I would include jobs Stanford Address
I would recommend this book because it is very thought provoking and enlightening. The entire experience was excellent and it was good listening to it read out to you.
The last chapter was very thought provoking and provided me with sufficient ideas that I can apply for presentations.
I have not.
No extreme reaction. It was not that type of book.
Lots of blah blah blah and then oh there's a secret step 1. Then lots of blah blah and then oh there's secret step 2. You are better off getting a book about the man himself which had more insight than this person who talks about himself more than any thing else
Learning how focused Steve could be
Steve had a knack of making his presentation look so easy
No. It did make me sad he's not on this earth any more.
Great suggestions and techniques shared.
I must have quit this book too soon as I seem to missed anything to recommend. The author/narrator's only good advice is to watch Jobs presentations on YouTube and model yourself after him. Unfortunately, the author/narrator doesn't take his own advice and delivers his topic like a healer at a revival meeting. Such basic information delivered like it was manna from heaven - I had to stop listening.
nice to hear from Steve Job's sister and inside track
sister, interesting to hear things you normally wouldn't
wouldn't recommend to anyone
