From the Author

One of the distinct features of a Democracy is the Freedom of Expression. Similarly, the distinct feature of a Meritocracy is the Power of Expression. While a democracy offers you the freedom of expression, you need to acquire the power of expression in a meritocracy. Slide Spin is all about acquiring such power.

In this competitive world, your career growth is directly linked to yourability to articulate new ideas and explain them using compellingPowerPoint presentations.

The skill to create a PowerPoint presentationis one of the most important tools in our survival kit.

Everyday,we come across many brilliant people with several bright ideas. Theyhave a burning desire to do something different and useful forthemselves and for their co-workers.

They make vain attempts to explainthe features and benefits of their ideas. Sadly, there are no takers oftheir fresh thoughts and perspectives. They then commit a 'Thoughticide' and bury the idea. May their thought not rest in peace but resurface strongly!

Similarly, there are many young 'Solopreneurs' who come up with innovativeproducts and solutions. They bet their careers on building what theybelieve and making sure that they work. Finally, when it comes toselling their idea or product, they fumble. They find it extremelydifficult to express the benefits of their product or invention to theinvestors or the people who can fund their mission.

We see manypeople who lose opportunities, skip their salary raise or chances ofmoving up the ladder. What is common to these failures? They lack thepower of expression.

What causes communication failures?

Such peoplesuffer from a condition called Thought Constipation. They have excessive difficulty in articulating and expressing their thoughts in a simple fashion.

When they start expressing their thoughts, they encounter another problemcalled 'Word Salad'. And I assure you, this salad has nothing to do with good health!

Wikipedia describes this condition as follows:
Word salad is a "confused or unintelligible mixture of seeminglyrandom words and phrases", most often used to describe a symptom of aneurological or mental disorder. The words may or may not begrammatically correct, but semantically confused to the point that thelistener cannot extract any meaning from them. Word salad may describe a symptom of neurological or psychological conditions in which a personattempts to communicate an idea, but words and phrases that may appearto be random and unrelated come out in an incoherent sequence instead.Often, the person is unaware that he or she did not make sense.
So then, what do we call a PowerPoint presentation created by a person with this condition? Slide Salad.

In this book I have explained various reasons for Slide Salads and how to avoid them.
