This book makes a really good guide on how to give an effective presentation. The author provides an excellent mix of information about a variety of topics, from designing graphics (charts, graphs and so on), setting up the presentation room, tips on how to deliver your message clearly and how to structure the content of a presentation.
I have been to several seminars on giving good presentations, but they never really seemed to have the information I really needed. This book covers everything from preparing your "script" (in whatever way suits you best), all the way through to the 'Question & Answer' session at the end of a presentation. The chapters are fairly short and concise, so you don't have to read pages and pages of waffle to get at the core information.
I have found this book great to learn from and now days I go back to it for a quick refresher every time I start work on a new presentation.
It explained WHAT I needed to do, HOW to do it, and WHY. Well worth the price as far as I'm concerned.
The author, Andrew Bradbury, has an economical and easy going writing style, and coupled with his years of experience as a speaker and trainer I found it was like getting advice from an old friend. I think the breadth of the book, which deals with planning a presentation and designing visual aids, delivering the presentation, handling the Q&A session session afterwards, plus how to prepare yourself, will appeal to the less experienced reader. At the same time the clarity of the writing makes it an excellent reference source for busy managers and those who already have some experience of speaking in public.
I confidently recommend this book for everyone who plans to do any kind of public speaking.
