This review is from: Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery (2nd Edition) (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
When my colleagues and I share our most valuable book list Presentation Zen is always the first book I mention. Before I read Presentation Zen I was in bullet point hell and now I am able to capture the attention of my audience by using thoughtful visual learning techniques and clean design.
The majority of busy professionals suffer from the term Linda Stone coined "Continuous Partial Attention." Those who design and present professionally it's critical to capture and hold the attention of an audience quickly or else you will have wasted their time. I often think of Garr's quote after leaving a very "less than splendid" presentation: " I wanted my hour back."
For those who are still creating the standard bullet point presentations you are damaging your credibility. Period. For those who are serious about creating professional presentations that will give you and your audience the results you are seeking Presentation Zen 2nd Edition is simply a "must buy."
