    I'm a middle-aged guy who thinks I know everything and that I'm hysterical. Basically like every other middle-aged guy you know!

    "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.

    I struggled to finish this audio book and had higher expectations. I should have invested my credit more wisely.

    "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.

    "Performance is pretty solid."

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

    "Great Way to Start"

    This book was great food for thought, especially for someone like me who has to do presentations, but has gotten bad feedback. The author highlights characteristics of great presentations. Things that I don't think I've consciously paid attention to when sitting in a good presentation, but in hind sight is easily recognizable in what made a presentation palatable or even unforgettably great. This book is going to be one that I listen to more than once.

    "Presentation 101"

    This is a good break down of the elements of a good presentation, using Steve Jobs various presentations to illustrate the points. There are no real 'secrets' here; you can find them in any book on how to give a good presentation, however what carries this book (audio) and makes it engaging is using examples from Jobs' presentations and his life to illustrate the main points. If you are looking for inspiration, you may not find it, but if you are looking for the meat and potatos of presentations, presentation 101 more or less, but delivered using examples from a master presenter, then this will provide a good overview. Don't forget the main take-home, though, "Practice!"
