Nice PowerPoint Book, But Lack Of Color Hurts
on September 2, 2010
As per usual with a Step by Step book, this is a great book at a great price. What you get out of the book is a great lesson on how to use the long time marketing application. What you don't get is even a single example in color and this hurts in this reviewer's opinion. PowerPoint isn't an Excel spreadsheet or code, it's splashy, fancy presentations that are supposed to get managers excited to throw money around, or to get consumers to want to throw THEIR money around. The book covers all the basics and more, like working with slides, creating tables, playing with animations, and does it in a nice job. Content is just over 400+ pages spread over 15 chapters, but black, white, grey, and blue just isn't enough.
If you need a PowerPoint reference, this does the job, but I just felt that if a little more cost went into adding color, it would have been money well spent.
