This is unusual in that the author is not selling his ideas but offering a guide to how an acknowledged master did it. The book is full of detailed comparisons and examples and although slightly limited by concentrating on Steve Jobs, it offers something useful for most people who give presentations. If you have been at it for a while, you have probably stumbled across some of the tips but I would suggest there is something to learn for most people.
It is easy to read, and the simpler ideas can be put straight into practice. If you have depended on death by Powerpoint and are a huge fan of bullet points this may be bad news for you! However if you wish to improve the effectiveness of your communication it is definitely worth a look. Like other reviewers, I suggest you accompany it with one of the books on picture presentation. Whilst Gallo does talk about this, The Zen Presentation book goes into more detail and compares poor with adequate and what the author regards as the optimum.
If you can only afford one book I would recommend this.
