I heard about this book in a review in the NYT and borrowed it from my library. I expected it to be something special but it certainly is not. If you have read any books on doing better presentations and especially on effective writing, you already know what is in this book. The only thing it did was to remind me of what I had heard but not remembered, which is that Bezos banned PowerPoint. Good for him.

Nice book ...

Suffers from some repetition, but I think it's practical, insightful, and an easy read.

Hope it has effect on my presentations. Steve is a master !

* to make your topic interesting, stick to themes that you actually care about (i.e., that "make your heart sing"
* think of a presentation more as a conversation in which you are connecting with your audience. The pace of a conversational tone is actually a little faster than the pace at which an audiobook is read.
* sit/stand up straight (or even lean slightly forward as a friendly/interested salesperson). See Amy Cuddy's power pose for prepping before your presentation.
* connect by invoking emotion--as through a personal anecdote, funny story, or shocking statement. Keep in mind that serious topics may benefit from a thoughtful injection of humor.
* practice a LOT. in front of friends, strangers, in front of a camera--put in the thousands of hours until you've reached proficiency and polish.
* keep it short (18-20 minutes) and focus on three things you want the audience to remember.
* adding carefully selected images to your slide deck (and limiting text - try 40 words for first 10 slides) can help people remember. Stick to one theme/one statistic/one message per slide; don't just stack bullet-points together as per the old style. (also consider props or multimedia to help illustrate your point)
