    "Good summary of Steve's approach. Sort of."

    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.

    "awful"

    this is the worst review i have ever written. This is awful.
    you could spend an hour reviewing all of steve jobs youtube videos, including his stanford address and key MacWorld presentations, and be better entertained and hear everything of value in this book. Oh, and Steve can actually speak in an entertaining way.
    As far as I can tell, all this author ever did was listen to the same speeches and then expound on them with trite ridiculous anecdotes. To summarize the book, be just like Steve and you will be an inspiration to all around you, turn around your business, and be a smashing success.
    On top of that the narrator is simply difficult to listen to. He could take Steve's speeches and make them nauseatingly boring. If he spoke any slower, you could read braille faster.
    What a waste.

    Story
    "Passionately Painful To Listen To"
    What disappointed you about Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs?

    I gave up on this book in the middle of Chapter 9 because all it talked about was Steve Job's passion. Absolutely zero insight into the innovations secrets of Steve Job's except he was passionate. I passionately wanted to shoot myself in the head if I had to hear any more about how passionate Steve Jobs was. Because of A, SJ was passionate. B would not have happened if SJ was not passionate. C did not get SJ down because he was passionate. What would SJ do? Be passionate.If you want to hear about how passionate SJ was, this book is for you.


    What was most disappointing about Carmine Gallo’s story?

    By chapter 9, there was nothing related to the innovations of Steve Jobs except for the life history of Steve Jobs.


    What does Sean Mangan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I thought his voice and reading was ok but the subject matter became so grating and repetitive. I was not disappointed in Sean Mangan's reading at all...just the material.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Everybody I have talked to about this book laughed and said I should have got the autobiography instead.


    Any additional comments?

    Save your credits.

    "Somewhat Redundant"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Maybe, some insights create thought, while pronunciation of some common known names and words are obliterated by the Narrator.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I like the narrators voice, but his soul isn't in it. Again how do you say Renaissance? His pronunciation is Crazy, I'd like to know what schools he attended so I can steer my children away.


    Any additional comments?

    Some thoughts are inspirational. The book repeats itself time and again. If I didn't get it at a discount, I'd be asking for a refund

    "great listen overall - worth it"

    I really enjoyed the message and the vision of the book. The narrator is not what I would have expected though, for a book like this. I wish it was narrated by Steve Jobs.

    "A New Found Appreciation"

    I enjoyed Carmine Gallo's How to Speak Like TED on audible yet I was not a strong supporter of Jobs. So I came to the book with some ambivalence. I was shocked and surprised as the creative elements were highlighted by Gallo. Not only were Jobs' revelations shared but other creative thinkers as well. Also, I loved hearing about the shortsightedness of some companies that did not nurture the creative process. This is a story as only Gallo can share! I came away with a new appreciation of Jobs' contributions and a deeper appreciation of Carmine Gallo!

    "Must read for people looking to do things differently"

    If you are looking for inspiration on how to change your approach to your company or job, this is a must read

    Very good tips, but I would like to get them summarized somewhere.

    Great voice, great tone.

    Great stories

    "Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs"

    Although the book is not 100% about Steve Jobs I found it very useful and it will tell you how to think outside of the box. Very good read
