"Garr Reynolds is widely recognised as one of the leaders in the creation of presentations that engage audiences and aid communication. Many presentations fail to make use of the graphical medium that PowerPoint (and other presentation tools) provide - instead it is used as a text tool with which to produce slide after slide of bulleted lists. Reynolds shows how simple slides can be used to deliver complex messages. His book is required reading for anyone who needs to give presentations; even if you decide not to adopt all his ideas, you will find some that will transform your slides." Dave Baker
