More About the Author

Susan has a Ph.D.in Psychology and over 30 years of experience as a behavioral psychologist. She speaks, consults, teaches, and writes books about applying psychology to the workplace.

While working on her Ph.D., Dr. Weinschenk conducted research on the left and right half of the brain. She was a college psychology professor at State University of New York (Oswego) and then began consulting. Early in her career she focused on applying cognitive psychology (how people think, remember, perceive), to make technology more usable. Recently she's gone back to her neuropsychology roots, studying the newest brain science and research on unconscious mental processing -- decision-making, persuasion, and emotion.

Susan started college at Virgina Tech and finished her undergraduate degree in Psychology at Northeastern. She then earned a Masters and Ph.D. at Pennsylvania State University.

Susan founded and runs the Weinschenk Institute, LLC in Wisconsin (USA), where she lives with her husband. Her two children are grown and "launched". When not teaching, speaking, writing, or blogging, Susan performs in community theatre, sings jazz, reads books, and watches movies.

Book Review by Veda Lewis

Imagine that you are preparing to give the most important presentation of your life. For a week prior to the event you will be sequestered on a desert island then picked up by the cruise ship where you will make your presentation. You are informed about your audience and provided with information on the meeting room environment. However, you may only take one book with you to prepare. I recommend 100 Things Every Presenter Needs to Know About People by Susan M. Weinschenk, Ph.D. This book does an excellent job in delivering a concise, compendium of what you need to know.

As a presentation geek, I have read many of the leading authors, such as Nancy Duarte, Garr Reynolds, Bert Decker and many others. They are all strong in their own right. In comparison, Dr. Weinschenk's book gets right to the point on each of the 100 things without taking more than two or three pages to get there. It brings together a wide range of material in a small package.

The book is divided into ten sections, ranging from how people learn, getting and keeping people's attention, motivating action, listening and visual guides, environment concerns, emotion, reaction, decision-making, and crafting your prez and a 90-day improvement plan.

In each of the 100 mini-chapters, you learn how to use psychology to be a better presenter. In a pinch, you could take the handy takeaways included in each chapter as a cheat sheet reminder.

I really enjoyed Susan approach to presentations. It was broken down in to bite size pieces and then put back together. I wish Susan would have used other examples vs her own website experience people need to be able to relate to a story so 2 -3 examples would have make this book a greater success in by book. Thank you Susan for your approach and knowledge.

The format of the book is sharp and to the point with great examples and how to. For the price if you get 10 new and useful ideas the book is well worth it. The book is written by someone show know the business.

Some observations about the psychology of people are a bit far fetched and not applicable to what is intended here. It looks like they had to find things to make it to 100 (like 10-20%). The meat of the book is at the end and I really wonder how much the 100 things build into the very useful advice at the end...

This book is about the psychology of how to become a better presenter, not only in delivery but also setup and context. There were numerous interesting tidbits from the book and a lot of great insights about messaging. This book is helpful if you will be giving presentations, and the format makes it really easy to pick it up at any time starting with any section. There are also helpful summary takeaways at the end of each point. That being said, there are basically 100 bullet points in an expanded list format so it is not presented in a story format which makes it difficult to remember most of the tips. It will remain on my shelve as a reference.
