This book is near the top of the list. I like how tactile the book is. It does exactaly what it says it is going to do.
I bought this book because I am giving more and more presentations and I figured it was worth a shot. I considered myself good at giving effective presentations before going thru Jason's steps...but reading this book and then taking the time to build a presentation following the steps lead to a presentation that was killer and allowed me to land more business. I typically just "shoot from the hip" while speaking, and this book has caused me to realize that it is worth it to put some time into your presentations...and to kill it!
My position requires that I give LOTS of 3+ hour presentations. After applying only a couple of the principles from this book, I noticed an improved difference in my delivery and class interactions. Jason does a great job of providing practical examples of how you can apply the skills from his book....right away. This book is a must read for those desiring to take their presentation/speaking abilities to the next level.
The information is very down to earth and doable. I work presenting all the time, have studied a good bit about presentations and still learned quite a bit from this book.
The narration is quite engaging too!
Yes, over and over - using as a step by step guide
Microphone too close...needs pop filter
This book is filled with take aways - real good honest advice from an obvious pro!
Thank you for writing this book, I thought I was a good presenter. After reading your book I was able to identify quickly how and why I wasn't wowing anyone. I listened to your book several times, I built my presentation step by step and then I did in fact Rule the Room. It was a fantastic feeling to know I got through to my audience. Thank you!
Excellent coverage of many topics related to presentation skills. Not just concepts, but practical, usable methods and techniques that most anyone can use. Narration was about 99% perfect and the few mistakes did not distract
from the message.
