    This book was slightly disappointing Any learner has to walk the line between theory and application Theory is essential or one often won't understand the nuances of implementation and application I had hoped this book would help me make better slide presentations What I need is practical application that will improve the way I present information in PowerPoint the heroin of the corporate world This hated but desperately desired form of communication is ubiuitous I found this book to contain examples that were focused on executives presenting to public audiences and marketers I'm guessing that is about2% or less of all slide shows created by the white collar drones like me who spend their professional lives in dusty cubicle farms basking under the fluorescent light of the information age Our jobs primarily reuire us to create and communicate ideas the best of which survive a nasty corporate gauntlet to become embodied in the design and code of computer systems or in the manual processes blindly followed by hordes of workers Anyone who's ever cared to paint a room in their house has gotten enough color wheel exposure from standing at the paint chip display at Lowe's so I don't need another chapter dedicated to it in this book Following the before and after examples in this book would get me fired Now the author might say that THAT is the very problem her firm is trying to address If that is the case then book is a valiant attempt Nevertheless many of us need baby steps Milk before meat

    “To succeed as a presenter you must think like a designer”A uick and very insightful read for anyone who needs to communicate concepts and stories effectivelyThis book covers how to create ideas translate them into pictures display them well and present them in your own natural way Book covers everything you need to know about making slides from presentation concepts fonts and colors images and videoI recommend this book to everyone

    This is a great book for presenters on how to design a great slide show to go along with your presentation Be warned this is not a book that shows you how to use presentation software like keynote or powerpoint It is a design focused book on how to tell your story and present your information visually in a way that is effective The twelve chapters covers creating a new ideology creating ideas creating diagrams displaying data thinking like a designer arranging elements visual elements images creating movement templates interacting with slides and finally the manifesto 5 steps It covers all the major components from knowing your audience brainstorming ideas through to grids diagram concepts colour choice contrast flow space font choices and proximityThis book is aimed at those who have little design experience It will not turn you into a designer overnight but it does help you understand what you should know And things to avoid Each idea is usually discussed over a two page spread with lots of illustrations and diagrams to help get the message across and show by example Many of the topics covered reuire a whole book on their own to fully appreciate and understand If you are chasing in depth coverage you might be better off completing a design course or buying books on topics of interest For those of us that want some practical advise on how to improve our presentation slides this does the job I found it helpful in identifying what not to do as well as what to do Being busy I did not want to have to read a arrange of books that discussed individual design concepts in great detail I just wanted to get an overall understanding for what I needed to be paying attention too This book help me address this through it short summaries of key idea’s I highly recommend this book for anyone designing or doing presentations who does not have a background or flare for design

    I've recently picked up a couple of books on presentation creation and public speaking In my opinion there's always room for improvement here for everyoneThis book piued my interest as the author's company designed Al Gore's presentation in An Inconvenient TruthThe author managed to distill many of the key tenets of great presentations a lot that I innately knew from my line of work but embarrassingly don't practice enough There's a lot of dare I say best practices in hereNow there are a lot of different types of presentations and this book really didn't highlight the kind that I most often find myself in sales pitches So there's a bit of connecting of the dots that needed to be doneAs a lot of this book went over design 101 it seems that it was geared towards non creative individuals Which makes sense as everyone and their brother finds themselves needing to give a PowerPoint presentation But for me than half the book was wasted thereFor that reason I'd have a hard time recommending this to my peers It is something however that I would recommend to my clients who probably spend time in PowerPoint than they'd like

    I looked at this one from 2 perspectives professional and gateway In other words is it worth reading for someone already familiar with basic design principles that's interested in taking things to the next level and is accessible for neophytes who feel like there's something wrong in the presentation world and they just want to know what it is This book leans towards the professional although the middle chapters on arrangement and visual elements are great and I'm considering using them to teach my students The examples are coded in a way that makes them meaningful mostly to well established professionals so it's not a book that will stand alone as a text for new folks though Smartly written and designed with great examples


  8. says:

    Not nearly as helpful as I had hoped I wanted lots of examples but instead they did case studies on people instead of presentations such as Al Gore's use of PPT for An Inconvenient Truth The rest was rhetoric The main point which I know is my greatest weakness is brevity and using PPT as an aid to your presentation

    If you're into stuff like this you can read the full reviewPowerPoint Karaoke slideology The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations by Nancy DuarteThere is nothing wrong with presentation software How else do you present a sophisticated graph map chart or table? Are we all really going to do a Bill Bryson and offer an entirely oral presentation of the universe to cover cross sections plan views 3D geometry and complex mathematical proofs? You must all be fucking stupid and have an extremely narrow range of things to discuss or present if you never need a diagram Bill Bryson does a good job but it isn't Einstein and it isn't Bertrand Russell

    Maybe it's just the deluge of other presentation books I've tackled over the last year but it doesn't seem like Duarte adds anything new to that conversation This book looks great no uestion with lots of great examples of pretty slides Still there isn't much substance behind the great design The best section hands down is the 12 page layout of all the different conceptual diagrams that are illustrated I read a review on that I thought was pretty snarky at first but now seems pretty apt It went something along the lines of the book actually says Hi I'm a great slide designer and I'm going to show you why when it should say Hi I'm a great slide designer and I'm going to show you how
