100 Things Every Presenter Needs to Know About People
by Susan M. Weinschenk, Ph.D.
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.Read more ›
And I am so glad that I did, this book has changed all presentations I have seen since reading this book. I can actually recognize mistakes people do when presenting and why people are leaving the room. I also gave many advices to a friend of mine before he was presenting...VERY RECOMMENDED!
I'm a business person, my clients and friends are business people
We don't want psychology lessons, we just want to know what we can do better
Didn't seem really as geared toward giving useful tips as it did teaching theory
