3.0 out of 5 stars Humorous and compelling, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Compelling read that gives you a great insight to Amazon from a few years ago. It doesn't paint a pretty picture though it's only one persons view. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend this to anyone who is interested in what moving to Seattle could be like as well as working for the giant Amazon.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay though most of it's obvious, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this book though it's actually full of obvious advice as well as some outdated information (benefits etc.)
Worth looking at before making a purchase and I hope they update it soon.

If you are interested in how Amazon started, how it thinks and runs then this book is for you. I found it informative and interesting. It's not up there with In the Plex about Google though it is worth the read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for presenters, 26 Feb. 2013
As someone who has to present to different audiences at key points in the year I found this book an excellent find. I had a crucial presentation to give towards the end of last year and without this book I would not have thought of planning and structuring my presentation in such a concise manner. Far from stifling my creativity this enabled me to be more creative and in a structured and self controlled way (also helping me plan and complete on time). The feedback I received for this presentation was the best I've ever had in my current role and it felt great while I was presenting too.

This isn't a book on presenting the Microsoft way (as another reviewer put it), it's a book on how to prepare and give great presentations, ones that capture participants minds and not just give information that will be instantly forgotten.

Key strengths: Excellently written and presented, easy to follow, structures your presentation and planning, comes with templates and visuals.

For anyone who needs to present (whether seasoned or not) I would recommend reading and referencing this book, you won't regret it.

NB: It works really well in partnership with Alexei Kapterev's Presentation Secrets (which deconstructs various TED talks and other pertinent presentations).
