    "A must for presenters"

    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.

    "What a rip off"
    What disappointed you about The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs?

    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


    Has The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Would you be willing to try another one of Carmine Gallo’s performances?

    never

    "A must listen to book for any speaker"

    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.

    "Find your path"

    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.

    "Great book but..."

    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.

    "simple, practical, entertaining"

    If you you have read many books on public speaking, most of what you see here will be review. This book nicely summarizes all the best practices of great presentations with vivid illustrations that include Steve Jobs stories.

    The narration is excellent, with engaging vocal inflection that entertains and holds your interest.

    "Some invalid information"

    Apple would have been bankrupt if it had not been for the Radio Shack TRS-80. Radio Shack had the marketing muscle to create the home/personal computer industry. All the companies that existed then were mom and pop companies working on a shoestring. The author referenced several times that Jobs and Apple created the industry. They did not. They rode it and did well. I use Apple myself however I hate to see the representation that Apple was responsible for the industry.

    "Presentation Secrets in Education"

    I wish this book had been around when I first started teaching. This and Carmine Gallo's, "Talk Like TED" should be required reading in teacher preparation programs. The concepts presented include learning theories that will transform the presentations of any reader.

    "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!

    "Great book, very inspiring"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs to be better than the print version?

    I only listen to the audio edition due to personal reasons, however I would recommend both as print is good to make your own personal notes, so you can re-read over and over again. I listen to the book whenever I need a boost in my thinking to kick start my mind and to inspire me on.
    well worth the purchase.


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

    There are many memorable moments, but I like the one when his remote presentation tool gave up. Most people would fluff their lines and die, but not this man, he was a great pro.


    What about Carmine Gallo’s performance did you like?

    Great voice and delivery, I liked it.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    He made me smile like a clown on the tube to work and back.


    Any additional comments?

    Great work.

    "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.
