    In The Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs, best-selling author Carmine Gallo reveals the qualities that make the Apple co-founder the most innovative leader in business today. Each principle is backed with research, quotes, and first-person interviews with experts and business leaders, as well as specific ideas for applying those principles to every business, large or small.

    Story

    Maybe I've listened to too many books about Steve Jobs, but this one seems to be a high-level overview of things covered in all the other books I've listened to. So it's a good summary/review, although some of the statements are contridicted in The official bio that was just released. The one thing about this book that drives me crazy are all the mis-pronunciations. It's difficult for me to listen to the content with so many obvious errors.

    With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, Rework is the perfect playbook for anyone who's ever dreamed of doing it on their own. Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs who want to get out, and artists who don't want to starve anymore will all find valuable inspiration and guidance in these pages. It's time to rework work.

    Overall

    The overall message in this book is that "all the rules you've been told about business no longer apply", which I like. They've gone against traditional approaches to business and have been very successful. It's an inspiring listen, but it does have a bit of an angry overtone, so you really have to be in the right frame of mind to listen to it.
