The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs: How to Be Insanely Great in Front of Any Audience by Carmine Gallo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As a pastor, and a bit of a tech-junkie, this book was right in my wheel-house. I learned a great deal about speaking, was surprisingly inspired by Steve Jobs (didn’t know much about him before reading this), and was thoroughly entertained.
I recently preached a sermon that I wound up revising because of this book. The opening did not answer the “why should I care?” question from the congregation, and so I changed my approach.
This is a well written, carefully researched book that draws from many arenas of expertise to help anyone who does public speaking as part of their job to improve. I want to be “insanely great” every Sunday and I believe this book has given me some of the tips and tools to get there.
