Yes, it's a book which gives you an understanding of how it ahould be done, to be used as reference over and over again.
There were several, specially when he describes the way Steve presented his new creations and how he did it.
An excellent narration, gives great emotion to the audience.
When Carmine explained how Steve presented the iPhone.
An audiobook to be listened over and ove again.
This is a good break down of the elements of a good presentation, using Steve Jobs various presentations to illustrate the points. There are no real 'secrets' here; you can find them in any book on how to give a good presentation, however what carries this book (audio) and makes it engaging is using examples from Jobs' presentations and his life to illustrate the main points. If you are looking for inspiration, you may not find it, but if you are looking for the meat and potatos of presentations, presentation 101 more or less, but delivered using examples from a master presenter, then this will provide a good overview. Don't forget the main take-home, though, "Practice!"

This is the same stuff that I have been teaching in my presentation training classes for years. Steve Jobs didn't invent this technique, he learned it. How? He took the time to study.
Still, the book has a ton of great material---I really liked it until I hit the Joel Olsteen stuff. I personally don't care for or feel trust in the Olsteen machine.
So yes, if you are new to presenting, this will your first exposure to much of this material. If you're a seasoned speaker, stick with your own style.
Apple fans may enjoy it. Because all it does is glorify obvious details and Hype Apple products. I learned nothing about presentation from this audiobook!
Not all the way, I'm still looking for a book, that may work!
Extremely slow. The audiobook was rather boring.
Umm, there's only 1 character in the Audiobook.. would be rather pointless if he was to be cut out.
I regret getting this Audiobook!
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'm an LMT originally from the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad and Tobago. I lived in NYC off and on for 15 years. I decided I had enough of long cold winters so summer of 2012 I relocated and now live in sunny Sarasota FL and loving every moment of it. My favorite thing to do is lay on the beach all day long listening to the waves and a great audible book.
valuable, insightful and awakening
The breakdown, point by point instructions
A better way to understand
No, not that type of book
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
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
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.
