Currently I’m not overloaded with work therefore I have much time. I use this circumstance to read some books.
This time I’ve read, you may already guessed, Presentation Zen. Firstly, I was surprised that this book really contains a scientific presentation. Most of the times you read great tips for this and that but they only work for shallow content.
The main statements are simple yet powerful.
- Use your slides as support to your speech
- Don’t overload your slides
- Use pictures
- Simplify your slides
- Be authentic
Garr Reynolds explains these points in detail with many images and stories. In conclusion, this book is written with its own guidelines in mind and that’s enjoyable. Though a bit disturbing is his apple-fanboyism.
