On the downside it's a slow, pedantic read and you really do have to skim some of the verbage. Also the examples given are shallow, the structure is a bit didactic, and the software is a bit clunky.
But get over that. The presentation approach is quite radical and it really WORKS. It forces you to clarify your thinking; to focus on the big issues; to use rational sensory and emotional communication to make your points; and to keep it succinct. And it makes all this relatively easy! On top of that it does half the work of creating the final Powerpoint slides for you.
If you spend any of your time making presentations to present thinking, persuade, or to teach, I recommend you take a look.
You can then sit and smugly codify precisely why his presentations are flat, dull and lifeless affairs. Then, your own presentations will take wings when you use some of the ideas from this book.
Should be compulsory reading for powerpoint users.
