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.
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
Very detailed and informative, yet practical. A definite must read for all aspiring leaders. The author does an amazing job humanizing an iconic figure and making world class leadership feel attainable.
All Audible audio books should be rated against this performance. I have a number of different titles - all of them business books - and some that I was very excited about were a complete let down because the performance was so dull...Carmine Gallo delivered a masterful audio experience in this one, and it should be a benchmark for what audio books should be presented like!
Author gave useful techniques that every presenter should do, but then shared why Steve Jobs was a Master of these techniques. I enjoyed the stories which served to illustrate the points well. Inspired me to go and watch some of the YouTube videos and see a Master at work. I would recommend this audible book. It's points were succinct, insightful, and inspiring.

just finishing my second time through this information packed volume. I have incorporated many of the tips in this book, to amazing results.
Everyone of us are communicators, no matter if we talk to our family and friends or if we speak professionally. This short book gives priceless nuggets of insights to one of the best presenters of all time. The book, however, goes a step farther and reveals that Steve Jobs' methods are simply, not-so-simple standard practices for the ultra above standard speaker. Listen hard. Study hard. Practice hard. And simply present your message as the best of the best presenters.
Incredibly insightful for those on the journey of finding your path on stage. We all have our presentation styles but challenging ourselves to not read to an audience in a book report style rhythm should be a goal. I say jump into the deep end, aka away from the podium, is where the greatest growth will happen. It challenges your mind to speak to what it knows and how it knows it driving an authentic delivery. Practice is key as the book says but this has helped me greatly in my journey.
This book gives very interesting insights on how to improve ones communication skill. Although, while keeping the focus on Jobs I think the reader would benefit from more examples from other CEOs and leaders that adopted apples cofounder strategies. The narration, performed by the author, is very well done.
Overall, I would recommend this book.
