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!
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
One quote "do you want to sell or change the world"
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.
The writer as the narrator is a plus in this case. Kudos. Jobs's presentation techniques and ethics are commendable.
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.
Yes, it's a book which gives you an understanding of how it ahould be done, to be used as reference over and over again.
There were several, specially when he describes the way Steve presented his new creations and how he did it.
An excellent narration, gives great emotion to the audience.
When Carmine explained how Steve presented the iPhone.
An audiobook to be listened over and ove again.
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!"
