Jon Steel is a good storyteller.

There are a number of great anecdotes and interesting stories in this book. On top of that, as an ad person, I found plenty of good advice here. I would have paid hundreds of dollars for these pearls.

One of my favorite business books

Would you consider the audio edition of Perfect Pitch to be better than the print version?

couldn't comment on that

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is one of my favorite sales/business books because there are so many non business examples that feel more "real worldish" involved. Jon does a great job of bringing us in to the board room with Steve Jobs or sitting opposite the Olympic Committee.<br/>

If you do presentations - get this book!

What a great book! Very entertaining and a great insight into the advertising industry. Slightly annoying that a book by a British author has an American narrator, but I guess that's because it's mainly aimed at an American audience. Everyone can learn something about presentations from this book - but even if you didn't - it's a damn good listen!

Subject is interesting but I expected more

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not time well spent. I expected more detail. Examples are used to illustrate a point made, but the examples are explained in so much detail the point being made is totally lost. The last part of the book uses the London 2012 olympic bid presentation as a summing up of the points made in the book: The problem is over 45 minutes of the book is devoted to describing what the presenters were like, and reading every single word they spoke with little examination of the importance of them. He talks about good presentations but doesnt go into detail about why they are good. I'm sure there are better, less dull books that have much more detail with much more to say on the subject of presentations. Bit disappointed as my motivation for getting this book was its mention in a really good talk. Oh well

Who was your favorite character and why?

A lot of Fluff (7 hours to be precise)

The 6 key points can be boiled down to 30min. Some of the pitch stories are good to know but are long winded. If you want to learn and implement actionable tips to improve your pitch decks to win new business...this is not for you or worth 8 hours of your time.
