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
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.
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.
"Can't recommend this highly enough!"
I'm on my third run through, I listen everytime I have an important presentation to deliver.
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"
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.
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.
Great voice and delivery, I liked it.
He made me smile like a clown on the tube to work and back.
"Well worth your money and time."
To the point, practical and immediately applicable !
Hands on, excellent presentation skills, story telling - packed with lots of samples and real live references. Highly recommended !
Really useful tips.
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.
"Improved my commute"
This was a well written book with many useful and practical tips to help improve my presentations. I'd recommend a listen
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.
