Excellent analysis and dissection of Steve's 'simple' techniques. Do not expect to find something magic that will instantaneously give you the same results that he received. Like any other master of a particular domain, including Steve or The Beattles, it will take you 10,000 HOURS of practice to reach the same level of success. Hopefully you start by reading this book all the way to the end.

a hodge-podge of advice, some of it good, most of it trivial on how to present. Steve Jobs' presentation style has a purely superficial connection to all this. A mediocre book on how to do a presentation, not a book about Steve Jobs' presentation secrets at all.
