Reviewers Comments: Excellent book and an easy read. The book breaks down the challenging points of presenting to an audience from a simplistic design principle looking into what captures people's attention...reading from a screen or images and ideas that might reinforce your words. The latter is the approach suggested in the book and the author gives an design ideas to change your Powerpoint presentations to be more simplistic with the potential to make a bigger impact on your audience. For example: leaving them with images in their mind to recall your message, rather than sorting through the words seen on the screen. Michelle Guercio, CVT, CVPM
