Great--but a little misleading,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Presenting in English: How to Give Successful Presentations (Updated Edition) (Student Book and Audio CD) (Paperback)
I have been waiting a long time for this book to be updated. The original edition (and mine is battered and tattered from overuse because it has been such a valuable resource) contains outdated information (such as the short presentation which contains reference to the "Twin Towers") and this edition revises that along with a few other things, although otherwise it is mostly the same. The CDs are also easier to use, of course, than the tapes. To me, it is the best book out there for presentations, and some sections are also good just in themselves for practice, for example, in the language of graphs and for general English pronunciation. My only objection (which is why I gave it only 4 stars) is that the amazon title suggests that it is all US English. The CD tracks, however, are given in a variety of English accents. This is really not a problem (actually it is probably a good thing), but the "US" heading is misleading. Overall, though, I highly recommend it.
