Format: Paperback
Anholt covers everything you need to know about making a good scientific presentation (in any discipline)- how to structure a talk, how to present your data (on slides or overhead transparencies), how to use body language, how to answer audience questions. He illustrates his tips with real-life examples (photos and drawings) and amusing anecdotes, so you can see the logic behind his suggestions and know what to avoid doing too. The section on poster presentations was very helpful-- it includes a drawing of a real poster so that you can see an example of a good layout. The book is well-organized, easy to follow, and has really helped me avoid so many of the pitfalls that commonly plague science presentations.

There are many fine books that cover presentation skills. However, there are far fewer books that cover this topic as it specifically relates to graduate science research. Robert Anholt has done a wonderful job in this regard. Furthermore, this book has received rave reviews from many Ph.D.s with whom we have talked.

We use this book in a seminar course for seniors majoring in chemistry. When I first saw it, I realized that it neatly summarized everything I had learned about giving an effective presentation. I think it's a great resource for science professionals and students

This is an outstanding little book that teaches one to give an excellent oral presentation.
It is aimed at scientists, also for popularizing their science.
I know of no other book - either in English or in my own language (Dutch) - that is of comparable clear and excellent quality.
