Very Helpful -even for an experienced trainer/presenter ! 10 Oct. 1998
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
I picked up this book on vacation. It reads well with a format more like a "how-to" book. I found that, even though I am a professional trainer and consultant with "many" years of public presentations to parents, educators and administrators under my belt, Mr. Gelb's suggestions for improving my skills have been very helpful, easy to implement and effective.. I have recommended this book to our CEO for all our consultants. I have used mind-mapping for all my presentations and projects... can't sing the praises loudly enough!

Fantastic book for professional speakers 18 Sept. 1998
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
Outstanding book! Clear and concise ideas on how to take the terror out of public speaking. The book explains how to mind-map a presentation in detail so it's easily understood. There are so many "How To's" that it is one of the books I recommend to incoming speakers.

Two for the Price of One 8 July 2007
By Robert E. Levasseur - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book by Michael Gelb, who is himself a truly excellent presenter, is really two books in one.

Chapter 2, Map Your Mind, is hands down the very best description of the why, what, and how of creating mind maps that I have ever read.

Mind mapping is one of my favorite techniques for capturing ideas as they emerge from the creative (right) side of the brain in an effortless and fun way that completely avoids the problems caused by traditional linear methods of outlining or note taking. I use it personally and in my work, and I teach it to others who want to access their creative potential and, in the process, dramatically enhance their thinking, writing, and public speaking.

The rest of this gem of a book uses mind mapping to illustrate the principles of effective presentation that have made Gelb such a well respected and effective speaker.

Whether you need to improve your presentation skills or you want to learn one of the very best ways to harness your creative potential (i.e., mind mapping), this simple and elegant book is for you.

This book is awesome and I refer to it often 24 Jan. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is great! If you want to become a better presenter of any kind, read this. It will help you organize your talks more quickly and in a manner that helps the presentation to stick. It also teaches one how to be more relaxed. This book has definitely helped me be a better presenter and be more confident and I re-read it every so often. It's a quicky.
