    You'll never present the same way after reading this!

    Steve is know to be the co-founder of Apple, the NeXT computers, Pixar, and upon his return to Apple - visionary behind the iPod, iPad and iTunes.

    This book is not about all these. Instead, it's all about his communication style - specifically, his presentation style. Book aside, have you seen Steve present any Apple product? If not, I suggest you look at at least one such presentation. In fact, look at several, and you'll see how effortless and 'inspiring' his presentations can be.

    Enter Gallo - a self-proclaimed Steve Jobs evangelist (I mean, with two books about Steve, isn't it a bit obvious?) with his book Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs and you get a book that really scrutinizes Steve's presentation style. not just on stage - but off it as well. And Gallo presents us with a 3-part framework, not exactly new. but never the less, quite effective - specially with Steve doing it.

    The chapters are arranged to follow Steve's 3-part framework, and are interesting (as well as easy to follow) reads about how Steve introduces (or creates) an idea, how he delivers an experience, and how he refines and rehearses - taking serious stock of stage presence (eye-contact, relaxed manner and near instantaneous style. Here's a hint: there really is noting instantaneous about it all - everything is well planned, practiced and tweaked (including his seemingly impromptu jokes and comments) to deliver those memorable talks that Steve has been known to do - ones that many people (fondly) refer to as 'reality-warping'.

    Gallo dissects Steve's style with the help of YouTube available videos, and shares it (both the analysis and the video addresses) in his book - allowing us to watch and or review, first hand, what exactly happened and when. and more importantly, how Steve executed it all.

    Now, does Carmine's scrutiny of Steve hold water? Apparently it does - you see. all these presentations - and the book release, happened before Steve introduced the iPad, and right before the launching of the iPad, Carmine was asked about what would Steve show. though Carmine could not answer that particular question, he did say what Steve would do. And guess what? Carmine nailed it.

    So. the bottom line, will people who read this book be able to present like Steve? Maybe.

    Nothing's really new. But if you have the same passion for 'getting things done right' as Steve does - and knowing what you do with this book, you can apply these ideas to your next presentation. and your presentations will be much better for following the ideas set within this book's pages. I mean, let's be realistic. one does not become insanely great overnight, right?

    I've been doing presentations for decades - and yet, as I went through this book, I found myself reading, perusing, absorbing ideas from it's chapters, as it presented Steve's style. as only Carmine could share it.

    So my personal recommendation is to go get the book - and bring your presentations into a different - and better level.

    Very Useful for Those Who Regularly Present

    "The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs" does provide a wealth of tips, suggestions, and ideas for forming presentations that really pop. However, I think to really be "insanely great", you must posses an inner talent for connecting with others. I definitely learned a lot, and my first presentation post-read was a strong step in the right direction. If you can incorporate a few of the tips you will see improvement... incorporate them all and you are well on your way to rave reviews!

    The Secrets Revealed

    The presentation skill of Steve Jobs is coveted by entrepreneurs world-wide and it is plan to see in this book why. The creativity and discipline found with each and every Jobs presentation is like a well-staged Broadway play as this book walks the reader through each of the stages and the role the number three (3) plays in its success. A must read for business people and those seeking to bring their communication skills to a level unimaginable.

    Nice to see Steve sharing his presentation finesse with us

    A great guide on public speaking and presenting. You will want to watch a youtube of Mr. Jobs speaking afterwards and the book will be crystal clear. Nice job.
