This review is from: slide:ology: The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations: The Art and Science of Presentation Design (Paperback)
This is indispensable reading for anyone who has to communicate using presentations and PowerPoint (or Keynote or Impress or whatever). Nancy Duarte lays out what she has learned from many years of experience producing professional presentations for the likes of ex VP Al Gore. Her "how to" approach works very well indeed. For example, she doesn't just say "make use of contrast" but shows five different patterns for using contrast in practice, illustrated with simple diagrams depicting contrasts in size, shape, shade, colour and proximity. This book makes advanced slide design accessible to anyone - if you present to other people, you must read this book!
