Testimonials & Reviews


One book can change your life. This one changed mine.

January 7, 2011, was a cold Friday in Hong Kong. I was browsing for books on Amazon. That’s when it happened. I saw the book that would eventually change my life. It was ‘The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs’ by Carmine Gallo. I was already a fan of Steve Jobs and Apple, so it was an easy buy. I was hooked. I started reading the book the same day, and I finished it in two days. I highlighted the important parts. I made notes. I thought, “Wow. Finally, I have found a better way to make presentations. It’s freaking awesome.” Yes, I was excited. I was like a 6-year old kid in a candy store.

How To WOW Your Audience

“This is one of the best How to… books on presentations. Recommended by a friend. I have nearly devoured its contents. This is a second purchase. How many books were good enough for you to WANT to replace it. That may just say it all. “Steve’s mind in your briefcase” now that’s a concept.”

Awesome For Presentation Skills, But Incredible As A Leadership Book Too

Thank you for provoking new inspiration!

“I wanted to take a brief moment and applaud you for the great books you’ve provided. Initially, I read The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs and I was so inspired that I quickly moved to your other great work, The Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs. In simple but elegant form, you’ve really developed a penchant for skillfully categorizing and organizing clear thought in your writing and presentation! Thank you so much for enhancing some critical learning but also provoking new inspiration!”

Great Practical Advice

“Great practical advice for presentations. Some were common sense things I should have been doing and were easy to incorporate into my presentations. Others will take me some time to master, such as just spending much more time practicing for presentations.”

Thank You For Improving the World!

“I have read your 2 books on the Presentation and Innovation secrets of Steve Jobs. I have also watched on YouTube your speech at Stanford where you help people better sell their ideas the Steve Jobs’ way. Many concepts got clearer to me. Eg innovation, a mission statement vs. vision, why the ability to communicate is so important, etc. I just wanted to thank you for improving the World!”

My Guide To Presentations

“I read your book The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs when preparing for a little presentation at College. I found it by chance in the Manly Library, in Sydney, Australia and made a huge impact on me. It has become my guide to the presentations I am often invited to and I even prepared a Ted talk last year with it: http://www.marisol.com.au/Love_to_Talk.php. Thank you so much for your systematic approach to presenting and for sharing your knowledge and experience.”
