There is so much content here it's hard to summarize it. I love the section on different story formats to build interest in your presentation. He talks about how to field audience questions, the importance of emotional appeals rather than pure logic, mistakes to avoid, and other pearls of wisdom.
The book was an enjoyable read. You can almost feel the author materializing in front of you, wise and generous, sharing his years of hard-won experience with sincerity and humility. Boettinger does not pretend to be some kind of expert, but the weight of this book's advice proves he is more worthy of the title than any self-proclaimed presentation guru.
This book is the best i have read to-date on presentation and persuasion. What sets this book apart? It is simply the fact that this book was written long before Powerpoint and other "visual amplifiers" became fairly mainstream. This is helpful for me because eliminates the presentation medium and focuses on the art of presentation irrespective of the medium. Listening to the author felt like sitting under a wise sage who is passing on the wisdom after seeing a range of presentation scenarios - failed ones and successful ones. The guy is a genius.
I am beginning to see that mere logical reasoning would go only so far in convincing the audience. Convincing them is one thing but persuading them is another matter or I should say it is like moving a mountain.If you want to be a good persuader (not just a presenter), get this book.
