Great little book for tips on making presentations, all the info you need without the waffle of other presentation skills books. Would recommend it if you need to pull together a presentation but don't have much time to think of all the elements. I'm a trainer and I give it to my course attendees for use as a prompt outside the training room.

This guide is okay if you are planning to make a presentation. It is not too difficult to follow. It is not the most thrilling read, but it does the job.

HASH(0x929589b4) out of 5 stars Do I have to? 25 Aug. 2001
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I would much rather have someone else give the presentation, to be quite honest. So, I am giving this book to my husband. I thought the information in the book was practical and it enourages preparation. There is a section on how to reduce your fears of speaking in public.
Knowing your audience, dealing with logistics, knowing your location, clarifying objectives, finding material, structuring material, writing a presentation, using audio-visual aids, rehearsing, preparing yourself and enhancing your body image are all good points. The avoiding bad habits section was especially good. I mean, if you stand in front of the baord, who can see it? If you slouch, it looks unprofessional.
It all sounds so complicated...can't we just all head for the beach. ;> But seriously, this is a fun book filled with basic information for those who have to make presentations to keep others informed about business decisions.

HASH(0x92958a98) out of 5 stars Things I learned in Architecture School & The Military 13 Jun. 2001
By Wesley Brian Sargent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This books isn't a bad purchase for the price...it's a low cost, handy reference. It is worth the cover price, but most of what it teaches, I have already learned through attending that High Priced University and by joining the Military (Death by Power Point!) I guess it always helps to have a refresher course, and something to refer to in a tight spot. Design, remembering your audience, and how to speak in front of people...maybe I could have saved the college tuition if I had this book 10 years ago! Enjoy it when you get your copy!
