In The Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs, best-selling author Carmine Gallo reveals the qualities that make the Apple co-founder the most innovative leader in business today. Each principle is backed with research, quotes, and first-person interviews with experts and business leaders, as well as specific ideas for applying those principles to every business, large or small.
By following Steve Jobs’ visionary example, you'll discover exciting new ways to unlock your creative potential and to foster an environment that encourages innovation and allows it to flourish. You'll learn how to match - and beat - the most powerful competitors, develop the most revolutionary products, attract the most loyal customers, and thrive in the most challenging times.
Maybe I've listened to too many books about Steve Jobs, but this one seems to be a high-level overview of things covered in all the other books I've listened to. So it's a good summary/review, although some of the statements are contridicted in The official bio that was just released. The one thing about this book that drives me crazy are all the mis-pronunciations. It's difficult for me to listen to the content with so many obvious errors.

What disappointed you about Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs?
I gave up on this book in the middle of Chapter 9 because all it talked about was Steve Job's passion. Absolutely zero insight into the innovations secrets of Steve Job's except he was passionate. I passionately wanted to shoot myself in the head if I had to hear any more about how passionate Steve Jobs was. Because of A, SJ was passionate. B would not have happened if SJ was not passionate. C did not get SJ down because he was passionate. What would SJ do? Be passionate.If you want to hear about how passionate SJ was, this book is for you.
What was most disappointing about Carmine Gallo’s story?
By chapter 9, there was nothing related to the innovations of Steve Jobs except for the life history of Steve Jobs.
What does Sean Mangan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I thought his voice and reading was ok but the subject matter became so grating and repetitive. I was not disappointed in Sean Mangan's reading at all...just the material.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment. Everybody I have talked to about this book laughed and said I should have got the autobiography instead.
Any additional comments?
Save your credits.

this is the worst review i have ever written. This is awful.
you could spend an hour reviewing all of steve jobs youtube videos, including his stanford address and key MacWorld presentations, and be better entertained and hear everything of value in this book. Oh, and Steve can actually speak in an entertaining way.
As far as I can tell, all this author ever did was listen to the same speeches and then expound on them with trite ridiculous anecdotes. To summarize the book, be just like Steve and you will be an inspiration to all around you, turn around your business, and be a smashing success.
On top of that the narrator is simply difficult to listen to. He could take Steve's speeches and make them nauseatingly boring. If he spoke any slower, you could read braille faster.
What a waste.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Maybe, some insights create thought, while pronunciation of some common known names and words are obliterated by the Narrator.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
I like the narrators voice, but his soul isn't in it. Again how do you say Renaissance? His pronunciation is Crazy, I'd like to know what schools he attended so I can steer my children away.
Any additional comments?
Some thoughts are inspirational. The book repeats itself time and again. If I didn't get it at a discount, I'd be asking for a refund

perhaps the best audiobook in giving actionable steps and examples to back up, of how entrepreneurs and businesses can think and act more like Steve Jobs and Apple as a whole. Can pick up from any where in the book and feel inspired and get a fresh new perspective! Thanks so much. One of my favourites now.
An interesting and inspirational book.
Concise and well written.
A great book for anyone who has a great idea or someone who needs one.
innovation is nothing but a catch word here. Unless mass manipulation is 'innovation" for you too. The whole book sings "kumbayas" to three same guy the book admits stole most of "his" ideas...
I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Steve Jobs. What an amazing man and how impressive his contributions. I didn't appreciate the author repeating several stories he'd told earlier in the book. Seemed he was trying to meet a publishers requirement of x number of pages. Also, afterwards I discovered much of this story on the internet. Again, I'm impressed with Steve Jobs, this author not so much.
definitely worth it. makes you think. note to implement in my business! worth every minute.
