    "Awesome audiobook"

    Everyone knows Jobs was the master of everything he touched. He should have been the dos xx guy. He was the most interesting man in the world. This book went into enough detail for most people to understand his presentations, from concept to delivery. If you're searching for presentation instructions, think is a great book for you.

    "Must Listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs to be better than the print version?

    I'm still an old school guy but in this instance I think the inflection and presentation give an additional emphasis to the material....almost a presentation in itself


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs?

    One quote "do you want to sell or change the world"


    Any additional comments?

    For anyone who presents this is a must. Not only to help you but to get an idea of what your competition might be doing.

    "Game Changing"

    I always knew I loved Steve Jobs keynote presentations but didn't know why until now. The best part is now I know how to do it myself.

    The writer as the narrator is a plus in this case. Kudos. Jobs's presentation techniques and ethics are commendable.

    "Can't recommend this highly enough!"
    Would you listen to The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs again? Why?

    I'm on my third run through, I listen everytime I have an important presentation to deliver.


    Any additional comments?

    I have only used a handful of the tips in this book and they have worked a treat. I recently gave a presentation that a second person had added slides to. My slides were "Jobs style", the others were traditional bullet points and text. I noticed the audience switching from captivation to bored disinterest and back again between the different types of slides. Enough said!

    "Really good!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs the most enjoyable?

    Really useful tips.


    Any additional comments?

    This book gives some really good tips about presenting. For instance before listening to this audiobook i'd use loads of bullet points, after listening to the authors augments about not using them i've never used another bullet point. There are some nice comparisons of the two pieces of software powerpoint and keynote and it gives some interesting background on steve jobs. The book is quite practical in giving tips, i listened to the book while creating my own powerpoint and i can say it definitely helped.

    Bought this after reading the book. Great refresher. Author does a great job of dissecting the late Jobs presentation techniques. One of better presentation books out there. This is because Links to the videos are available for you to study and learn.

    "Verbose"

    The introduction is rather long-winded, and therefore off-putting. You would have thought that the title is self-explanatory.



    Then you find that the book doesn't follow the minimalist approach we have come to expect of apple and its products. There is nothing behind the scenes in the book. It employs standard motivational talk gimmicks in its approach to the topic.
