Heather’s Recommended Audience:
Everyone who has to present an idea to a group. Sales, Consultants, Executives…
I loved this book! Most books on giving presentations are BORING! Mr. Donovan artfully weaves in real TED Talk examples that you can view online. He breaks the sections down into just the right chunks and lays the book out in interesting, useful sequential tips. Clearly, Mr. Donovan has a passion for presentations and an analytical mind because his style of writing speaks to the analytical types, but he comes across very altruistic. He teaches readers techniques on how to tell the story to which will create just enough suspense and emotions to mesmerize the audience. The Delivery section further advises how to capture the audience and have them feel as if they have lived your adventure.
This is a must read book!
The one thing I would have liked to see is a tear-out summary of all the tips at the end so I could use it as a reference, or at least a chapter summary. Looks like I’ll have to type up my notes to reference in the future.
Although I am a huge Kindle and audible book fan, I recommend you purchase this as a real book. I made notes and comments all over this book and will reference this book as a refresher before any major presentation.
