If you buy one book on designing presentations, make it this one. Nancy Duarte gives away all the secrets of her company, experts in designing and refining presentations for the likes of Al Gore.

Where books like Presentation Zen (also recommended) give you a style to aim for, this focuses more on the basic tools and techniques. The coverage is simply breathtaking, including type, colour, grids, and even a basic primer on photographic composition.

Reading this book, and applying the lessons in it, will change the way you view presentations. It will also change the way other people see you as a presenter. More than worth the money.

This is most likely the best book on presentation design on the market.

Being mainly about presentation design, the book also discusses what to consider regarding the audience and various other important aspects. Contrary to most other books on presentation design, this book contains little text and an impressive amount of superb graphics.

In my opinion, this book is a must have for anyone who feels they need to develop their presentations from something that looks like everybody else's mediocre bullet points to something aspiring to a world class presentation!

As other reviewers have pointed out, this is a stunning book where the messages leap clearly from the page.

Ostensibly about presentation and using power point, the messages presented are easily transferable to other communications media such as advertising and the web. Whether you're about to give a presentation or not, you can use the information here to improve your communication skills in other media.

Highly recommended for those wishing to improve their communication skills, using power point or other communication technologies.

If you think you can't learn anything about creating a presentation, think again. If you think presentations are dull, think again. This book really does offer an expert insight into something many business people do (very badly) every day.

Not so much to read but in my opinion, this is just the strenghtness of the book.
