Guide Review - "Guide to PowerPoint" by Mary Munter and Dave Paradi
That is just the technical part of this wonderful resource, and really the smallest portion of the book. What is most impressive is the wealth of information contained in these 190 pages - from planning the presentation to structure of the slides and finally, to delivering the best presentation for your business clientele. It is jam-packed with all sorts of "Now why didn't I think of that?" tips and more importantly, many more "I never would have thought of that" tips, on how to make a winning presentation.
If you ever have to make another professional presentation, give this book a read. Don't let its small size fool you. A nice feature of this book is that it neatly fits into a pocket or briefcase. It can be easily skimmed so you can focus only on the parts that pertain to your next presentation. It is an easy read if you have the time to thoroughly go through it, and it will be well worth the investment in your time.
