Product Description


"As a multi–title Dummies author, I am very impressed by the depth of Prezi for Dummies . It′s hard enough to write a book that explains a software program from the point of view of readers who has never used it before. It′s even harder to write a book that puts a new software into perspective and links it to classic visual thinking and storytelling techniques…explaining not only how to use it, but when and why from a content and message point of view." (Roger C. Parker, Published & Profitable Blog )

I saw Prezi and loved it, but didn't really have much idea of how to develop things. This book helps, as with others in the series, and allows you to get going. I'm an FE teacher of maths. So I'm always looking for new ways to present my lesson material.

Prezi is the future 16 Sept. 2010
By George Machlan - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have never liked power point slides. My brain does not work the way they present information. I also think that most PPT presenters hide their boring mindset behind the cool multi media graphics moniker. Prezi opens a whole new world to real people and how the learning and/or sharing experience takes place. This first book helps you with the basics and encourages you to think about your presentation in new and magical ways. It is not a book for knowing all, as Prezi is only in its infancy. It is the opening chapter of a new story in your technology enhanced life. Once upon a time.....

I have reviewed and encouraged many educational entrepreneurs to experience the Prezi dream. Go to my website at myESLfriends and search for prezi. Now this book allows you to step into the driver's seat much faster.

Worthless 25 Sept. 2012
By Daniel J. Justin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am very frustrated with this book. Apparently I should have done better research before buying it. I am new to Prezi and thought this could be a helpful way to get familiar. Prezi has apparently developed and changed since this book was produced. The book speaks to an outdated version of the software. Don't bother buying the book.

Prezi - You need to know it! 21 Oct. 2010
By Brad J. Ward - Published on
Format: Paperback
Prezi is a fantastic tool. I've been using it since April 2009, and haven't looked back since. Literally, for the first 20-30 presentations I gave at conferences and workshops after switching to Prezi, the first question I got in Q&A was "WHAT DID YOU JUST USE?". :)

That being said, I've seen a lot of BAD Prezi's. Just like you can make a bad powerpoint, you can make a bad prezi. (Once, I felt like I was on a roller coaster while watching another Prezi presenter.)

And that is where this book comes in. This will help you do better with Prezi, and not ruin it for the rest of us. I found many valuable tips not only about Prezi, but also about laying out my presentation format, brainstorming, etc. Very valuable stuff to consider.

Prezi is constantly updating with new features, but this book covers a lot of the groundwork and basics needed to excel with the tool. I recommend it to anyone who uses Prezi, regardless of your expertise level!

Beyond the standard slide deck 29 Sept. 2010
By David W. Gray - Published on
Format: Paperback
Prezi is an innovative software platform for those who feel constrained by the linear nature of PowerPoint, Keynote and other "slideware." It allows you to develop a big picture and move dynamically through it in different ways. Prezi isn't for everyone, and I would suggest you give it a test-run to see if it seems interesting to you. But if you want to learn Prezi, or if you want to stretch yourself and test the limits of what you can do in a presentation, then this is the best book to be found on the subject. There are also some great sections on presentation-building and visual thinking that are valuable whether you use Prezi or not. All in all an excellent book that does a great job of exploring and explaining a cutting-edge platform.

Useless 17 Nov. 2012
By Robert J. Kirwin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is heavily focused on instructing you on why you need to build a presentation and does not cover nearly enough about how to actually use the program. Don't waste your money.
