Excellent Book for Presentation Creation  March 24, 2011

As many others have commented this textbook is a wonderfully thoughtful, beautiful read. A point that others have not mentioned is that it has lots of specific advice. Much of the techniques/styles that I found through hard work to be the most important for making my presentations absorbable to audiences of very varied educational backgrounds, I found in this book.

Presentation Zen Design : Simple Design Principles and Techniques to Enhance Your Presentations: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


In "Presentation Zen," Reynolds gave readers the framework for planning, putting together, and delivering successful presentations. Now, in this follow-up guide, the author takes readers deeper into the design realm.

In Presentation Zen Design the author extends more on the design of slides and presentations in general. Everything remains said in a clear and expert way.

Throughout Presentation Zen Design, Garr shares his lessons on designing effective presentations that contain text, graphs, color, images, and video. After establishing guidelines for each of the various elements, he explains how to achieve an overall harmony and balance using the tenets of Zen simplicity.

Through this textbook, not only will you discover how to design your slides for more professional-looking presentations, you’ll learn to communicate more clearly and will accomplish the goal of making a stronger, more lasting connection with your audience.
