Format: Paperback
I'm one of those nerds whose presentations are filled with content but not interesting. I had a dry run of my presentation last week with my peers. "Dry" was definitely the word. After the dry run, I utilized this book to help this nerd be more engaging - it worked! It definitely had information in it that I was able to apply immediately to my in-process presentation. Thanks to this book - it went great!

I highly recommend this book.

This is great book for learning how to make dull subjects interesting. The book has 52 short chapters that are easy to read and have lots of great ideas on how to spice up any subject.

For example, how can you give an interesting presentation on how to work with your technical support department? She recommends creating a game of "Technical Support Jeopardy" and providing cash and prizes for the right answers. Fun idea! There are dozens of ideas like this throughout the book.

Read the book to know the reason for my review title. I have presented many times and wish I had read this first. The author has true genius and the humor makes it an easy read. THE How-to to tell others "How To" in 52 different ways. Not only good for presenters but good info. for those who need to network with others.
One hell of a book Genie Whitehouse. Any more??

This is an easy read and the ideas that are presented really work! I have seen presentations by Geni Whitehouse and she is anything but boring. She uses all of these tips in her presentations and she really stretches your imagination. These tips can be used for meetings also, not only presentations. Great tips and great humor - I was giggling through most of the book.
