3.0 out of 5 stars Should have bought on the hard copy August 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Pretty interesting and helpful book but I made the mistake of getting it on my Kindle which makes it less user friendly for me when I'm working on presentations. If you think you'll use it, buy the hard copy!
