Good summary of Steve's approach. Sort of.

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.

Passionately Painful To Listen To

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.

Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs

Although the book is not 100% about Steve Jobs I found it very useful and it will tell you how to think outside of the box. Very good read
