If you want to master visual communication, this book is for you.
If you want to impress your audience with eye-popping slides, this book is for you.
If you want to break free from the Death By PowerPoint pandemic, this book is for you.
Ever since my copy arrived, I canít put it down. Iíve carried it to and from work every day so I can read a few pages on breaks. Itís that good.
I highly recommend Slide:ology. It is destined to become a classic reference text for presentation skills
Slide:ology covers the whole visual presentation process, from concept generation to delivery. Examples and case studies abound throughout. The twelve chapters are:
- Creating a new slide ideology.
- Creating ideas, not slides.
- Creating Diagrams.
- Displaying Data.
- Thinking like a designer.
- Arranging elements.
- Using visual elements: background, color, and text.
- Using visual images.
- Creating movement.
- Governing with templates.
- Interacting with slides.
- Manifesto: The five theses of the power of a presentation.
Thereís a lot to love about this book, and even more to learn. On top of the many presentation design lessons, Slide:ology
teaches many lessons that apply to all speeches and presentations. Itís a beautiful and useful book. I recommend it highly. I know Iíve said this before, but this is a book you need. My favorite presentation book of all time. This is high praise, considering that Garr authored his own bestseller earlier this year.
