More science than art, more USEFUL than most,
This review is from: Speaking PowerPoint: The New Language of Business (Paperback)
Having spent my entire professional career in either consulting or corporate strategy, I found this book extremely useful. It demystifies the process of creating Powerpoint decks and provides practical recommendations grounded on fundamental human behavior science. It has been a challenging journey when the way most of us learn to create decks is through an apprenticeship model. The learnings are all based on your boss's or firm's deck style. Often, the basis of your promotion depended on your ability to quickly adjust and learn how to create decks. Many hours were spent on relearning and being told that its more of an art than a science. I wish I had this book when I first started creating decks. The book is well written and offers additional references if you choose to dive deeper into a particular topic. I like how I can quickly find what I need and have examples to make the book's recommendations real. It's changed the way I create decks and has transformed the way my team approaches them today.
