The list author says: "This is a condensed version of the reviews and bookshelf content from my blog 'Presentation Impact'. These are the printed resources I've found most useful doing presentations, coaching presenters and leading presentation skills seminars."
"Superb, easily read and digested book of extraordinarily important ideas about doing presentations of all kinds and all purposes. More than any other, this one has started a budding revolution in how presentations are done and just what is possible in a good one. Essential."
"This extends and expands on his approach to the specifics of design for a presentation-starting with why presentations really do need to be designed and not just created. ThereÂ’s overlap with NancyÂ’s book but this covers a wider topic. Lots of examples-lots of Â“show meÂ” and less Â“tell me.Â” If you donÂ’t have NancyÂ’s book then this oneÂ’s essential."
"This takes off where GarrÂ’s 1st book stops and concentrates on how you design slides and visuals. She incorporates a very thorough understanding of the principles of good design while doing so in a very pragmatic way. Excellent."
"This book is written from first-hand experience. He tells stories. This is pragmatic, concrete advice. References a bunch of books on my list and connects them. ScottÂ’s style is informal, entertaining and easy to read. Highest recommendation."
"Very readable and sometimes surprising, this book is structured as a series of Â’rulesÂ’ about how our brains behave. Extensively annotated with research citations, this is solidly based on science and has both important and surprising things to say about the complex way we take in sensory data and make sense of it. Highly recommended."
"Simple, easily read and hugely important to anyone (yes, you) who prepares visual information for an audience, printed or video formatted. Want your documents to get read? your visuals to be understood? Read This Book!"
"The fundamental point of the book is that the future requires people able to be Left+Right brain thinkers-a whole, new mind with the emphasis on the whole. Want to get your presentation listened to? Tell a story! Want to know why that works? Read this book."
