“ Many books about presentation delivery cover simple topics like eye contact and gestures. Garr’s book goes much deeper, highlighting Zen concepts that address meaningful ways to connect credibly with an audience. It’s a must-read for anyone who has to give presentations. ”
Nancy Duarte, CEO of Duarte Design and author of slide:ology: The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations and Resonate: Present Visual Stories that Transform Audiences
“ I take everything Garr Reynolds says to heart. I don’t read his books, I devour them from the inside out. The Naked Presenter is a book whose time has come. Shedding everything to focus on the audience and the content is the true secret to great presentations. Now, Garr is sharing that secret (and how to do it) with the world. ”
Mitch Joel, President of Twist Image and author of Six Pixels of Separation
In his first two best-selling booksPresentation ZenandPresentation Zen Design,Garr Reynolds gave readers the necessary tools for planning and designing successful presentations. Establishing the framework for beautifully designed and well-prepared presentations, he now examines the delivery of the presentation in this handy, beautiful, and simple guide.
The Naked Presenterteaches readers how they can reach an audience by stripping away all that is unnecessary to get at the essence of the message. The naked presenter approaches the presentation task embracing the ideas of simplicity, clarity, honesty, integrity, and passion. She presents with a certain freshness. The ideas may or may not be radical, earth shattering, or new. But there is a "newness" and freshness to her approach and to her content. And if she uses slideware, her slides fit well with her talk and are harmonious with her message. The slides are in sync, and are simple and beautifully designed, yet never steal the show or rise above serving a strong but simple supportive role.
In this book, readers will learn how to achieve that balance and gain the skills to deliver presentations that are natural and memorable.
