This is really the only Duarte you need to buy, if you're looking at her body of work and wondering. No, it doesn't have all the layout stuff that Slideology has, but after reading all her stuff (library and purchased), I feel like this would have been the one to focus on (although it was published AFTER I had read through all her others). I feel it's the most practical, and jettisons some of the fluff you find in her other books. I have highlighted, dog-eared and stickie-taped throughout this whole book.

Quick and easy to digest read about how to improve presentations. The book provides a good high-level description of some key areas of focus. Nancy Duarte starts with how to understand and appreciate your audience. She follows that up with expanding on how to develop the message and the story behind the presentation. Afterwards, she discusses the medium of the presentation (not everything requires PowerPoint) and then goes further into the actual slides and methods of delivery. Lastly she touches on the impact and follow-through post-presentation. I found the topics useful and very applicable to my work.

It doesn't matter if you are pitching to investors, speaking at a conference, presenting to the board of directors of your company or engaging your team about the forthcoming strategic plan, we all need to be persuasive in our commununication.

In Nancy Duarte's new book she presents useful tips delivered in quick to read chapters, to help you in the process of planning your presentation through to the follow up after your talk.

This book is ideal for the busy executive who wants a reminder of the key areas to cover in their preparation for an important presentation. But it is also relevant for the student who is presenting to their class.

Nancy includes tips for delivering virtual presentations such as webinars and teleseminars and also share ideas about how to build relationships and access feedback about your presentation through social media (especially relevant if you are speaking at public events and conferences).

This is not the book to purchase if you are looking for guidance on how to design your slides (Nancy's organisation does provide cost effective templates if you do not have an in-house designer and need help to visualise your ideas) - for that you may want to check out Garr Reynolds book Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery (2nd Edition) (Voices That Matter) .

Even if you are seasoned professional speaker I am confident you will benefit from reading HBR Guide to Persuasive Presentations (Harvard Business Reveiw Guides) if you are like me and constantly evaluating how to improve you delivery and impact each and every time you present.

Awesome guide for presentations! A must have for creating informational and impactful college & professional presentations. Whether or not you use PowerPoint this guide would guide you to deliver an A+ creative work.
Very light weight & fits perfectly in your backpack.

For those who also read Resonate and Slide:ology, you will find the new HBR Guide to Persuasive Presentations a useful and compelling tool. Having worked with Nancy's team at Duarte Design, earlier this year, I found this ebook to be a useful receipt from that experience, reminding what is valuable when preparing to create and deliver an impactful presentation - especially to busy, distracted, high-powered executives. As in her other works, Nancy is authentic, practicing what she advocates by cleanly organizing her guidance and delivering it with passion.
This book adds nicely to her volume set, adding useful tips on building relationships via social media channels and following-up with your audience after you've delivered.
I recommend this handy ebook to my colleagues and my clients, as well as to my proteges who are learning - through practice - the art of tech entrepreneurship and strategy at Stanford, NUS (Singapore), KTH (Sweden), etc.

Just what I've been looking for! I teach an introductory management course in an MBA program, and this book provides details and discussion about all of the criteria already in use in our grading rubric for Business Presentations. At only $15, I won't hesitate to recommend that all of my students add this little guide to their personal library.

Nancy Duartes follows up her wonderful presentations books slide:ology and resonate with this HBR handbook in how to make and deliver the presentations. The book follow the full chain from creating your ideas to how to the follow up on the talk. I especially enjoyed the last part, the delivery, which for me was 'most new', since I have read the other books. For the other parts I prefer the two individual books, maybe not least since they are more visually appealing. The HBR format do make this book a little dull compared to the other books. The text is on the other hand, as always, interesting and has a good flow.
If you are interested in only one book about presentations, then this is the perfect option (maybe with a reservation for the graphical format). If you are interested in more books, you should complement with Nancy's previous boooks.
Helped with a very important presentation.
