4.0 out of 5 stars Nice reference book for creating slide visuals, 2 April 2009
Designers probably will get most out of this book, but even without designer skills, there are valuable tips and tricks on improving the visuals on your slides.

I would recommend Beyond Bullet Points: Using Microsoft® Office PowerPoint® 2007 to Create Presentations That Inform, Motivate, and Inspire to get a better idea on the concept of creating text-light slides. Content is king, so get this one first.

I'm not thrilled by some of the graphs slide:ology features. Other than that, I got a lot out of it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Confusing, unstructured book, 2 April 2009
This book was a real struggle to get through. The author writes in a very confusing way, with no clear story lines. You constantly have a feeling that he contradicts himself. There is without a doubt a lot of good research done. Unfortunately a lot of the outcomes are lost due to a lack of structure. Maybe if you analyse the book while you read it, taking notes and study the content, you might get more out of it. Might.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written, interesting read, 2 April 2009
A well written, interesting read. Does exactly what the title indicates. It also gives a good overview of the usual way of doing PR work, which is interesting if you haven't been well versed in this area.
I agree with the comment that it can become quickly outdated. A section on Second Life near the end was clearly written during the hype.
