100 Things Every Presenter Needs to Know About People

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.

At first, I thought it wasn't so special. I loved the RSAnimate video on Youtube, which is why I bought the book. From the first 20 "things," I felt like 5 or 6 were worth the read. But then it "heats up," and I find myself electronically dog-earing and highlighting more "things." I like the psychology she employs and shares, and definitely recommend this book, especially for those who can use some data and facts to back up the assertion that too much text kills a presentation.

Each of the 100 points made in this book is backed by current psychological research. Even on "known" facts the author adds a new spin on its application, but perhaps more useful is some of the conventional wisdom this refutes (such as "tell 'em what you are going to tell !em, tell 'em, then 'em what you told 'em" - disproven here). I value the references provided; nice to have more than just the author's opinion. Well done!

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.

You are not going to believe it, but I actually did not want to buy this book. I was going to buy a totally different book from this author and I made a mistake when ordering, and bought this one.

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!

great concept and I was excited to get it but it was so technical I got bored
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
Disappointed
