Editorial Reviews

Review

This review is for a book that is several 'cuts above' the others I've been posting. Are you afraid of giving presentations? Does the very thought of it cause fear? Then this is the book for you! I can't stress enough how exceptional and well-thought-out this book is. It provides you with all you need to face your next presentation with confidence, and does so with great attention to detail, yet in an easy-to-follow format. --Claudia L. Meydrech, CN

As a communication consultant and instructor of public speaking, I have taught hundreds of people how to prepare and deliver successful presentations. For anyone who has to give a presentation, I would definitely recommend Presentational Skills for the Next Generation by Ginger Marks. This easy-to-read book provides excellent ideas for putting together a polished presentation. Ginger s explanation on preparing and using visual aids to compliment your talk is especially well done. Ginger covers all important areas of preparing an effective presentation from considering your audience and the location of your talk to your personal appearance and valuable delivery tips and techniques. This book is a great resource that you can refer to time and again for every presentation you ll ever do. --Felicia J. Slattery, M.A., M.Ad.Ed.

Format: Perfect Paperback
Presentation Skills for the Next Generation is a quick read. With falling attention spans a feature of modern living, Ginger Marks has written a good introduction to presenting. Each chapter is short and cover a wide range of topics including using technology in presentations, how to find better supporting material like quotations online, and good reminders on what to do before you arrive at a presentation. The chapter on transitions is worth a close read as it tells the reader how to write a transition; an important and often-overlooked element of presentations.

This book is packed full of easy to read tips and best of all, for the next generation, it only takes an hour or two to read. Keep this book on hand when you are under pressure to prepare your next presentation.

Format: Perfect Paperback
As an author of PowerPoint books including one that Ginger reviewed Cutting Edge PowerPoint 2007 For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech)), I do find that this book complements my book.

I like this book because it's easy to read and packed with helpful stuff that will allow you to better plan your next presentation. It is a book that explains the concept of presentation delivery -- and it does so in an easy to comprehend manner so that you can get results soon. It's also a very handy size -- put it inside your laptop bag, and read it whenever you get the time, you won't regret it.

Format: Kindle Edition
In Presentation Skills for the Next Generation, Ginger Marks provides in a concise and very readable form all one need know to prepare, rehearse, set up, present and conclude consistently effective presentations. Clearly a veteran of many, she covers all presentation aspects from identifying the audience, defining the goal, and preparing speech and AV support to how to dress, how to break the ice, what formality of language to use and to avoid and how to engage and persuade one's audience.

An extensive resource guide to software, reference material, books and sites provides the reader with further relevant information.

I have done a good deal of speaking for many years but points gleaned from this volume will certainly improve my skills.
