Review Text

  • By Adam "Reviewboy" Yorkie'bar on 16 February 2010

    It is a basic book for creating average presentations. If you want to make competent but dull presentations then this is the book for you.There are better books out there.The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs: How to Be Insanely Great in Front of Any AudiencePresentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery (Voices That Matter)

  • By Martin Conradi on 24 April 2007

    This is an ambitious book; it covers a lot of ground in relatively few pages. It is terse, opinionated, challenging and prescriptive. It is full of useful tips and checklists. It is written by someone who, you feel, has sat through - and given - a lot of presentations and thought long and hard about why a few are excellent but many so bad.It will do your presentations (and thereby your career) the world of good.

    "If you're talking about innovation and you want to explore that WOW factor, why not put a WOW card on every seat for the audience to wave whenever they feel a WOW moment" ..... ARE YOU SERIOUS? ... Who is he presenting to children or the mentally challenged or what?? Am I the only one who thinks that would be hilarious to watch? This is the sort of cringe-moment that spoils this book (and trust me there are plenty of them).However, the book does have SOME useful information, if you can get past the pompous style of the author who seems to think that using big words to explain simple concepts makes him sound more intelligent, despite the fact the he advises clarity over complexity as a key part of good presentations.I found this book quite annoying with very little insightful information worth underlining. The author's style is just all over the place and at times quite boring and pointless to be perfectly honest. He also tells of how he once ate "half an Airwick solid air-freshner in front of an astonished account team to prove how pure and safe it was" "I remember feeling so strongly that there had never been a better bluer loo cleaner" HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA What a passionate individual. This book is surreal

    A few of the 'Brilliant' series have been a bit weak (eg 'Brilliant Life Coaching' and 'Brilliant Confidence'.) However, there are some diamonds in the rough such as 'Brilliant Networking' and this book, 'Brilliant Presentations'.While many other books on presentations give advice on how to research an audience and the importance of practice, this one gives really good advice on how to pull together your slide presentation. By nature I am quite a wordy person (ie I write slides that are quite wordy), but this book gives solid advice on how to condense the words down and how to include pictures and images that really bring a presentation to life.If you are already have done a bit of presenting, then this book is probably the very best book I've come across on how to hone your presentation skills.

    I read this book in a day on a train and made notes while I read it. For me it was research as I too work in presentation, particularly the use of voice. It is well written and clear. Much can be made of the mystery of "how to be on stage" and while there is a magic and charisma afforded those of us who are "natural" performers, Richard is right to point out - that is the starting point - not the final product.I think many people will devour the wealth of information and he rightly steers clear of being an expert in all areas - so he advocates getting voice training for example rather than trying to put vocal techniques into print himself. (That's for the likes of me!)His mantra is PREPARATION and in this he is thorough as one would expect and of course you need to PRACTISE.How to use power point is given a large amount of time and the overall feeling is that anyone can improve their skills and indeed how necessary it is to be striving for the next level. As a performer myself I realised how much is aligned to what I do and how much pefromers can offer to the business market.

    This was a disappointing book, there's nothing wrong with it as such and if it was the only presentation book that you have ever read then I think that it will be useful but there are much better books out there.The author gives good advice but it's a bit dull, it doesn't inspire you to leap up on stage and talk which I think is where it fails. It doesn't excite.

    This book is the best that I've come across. It's easy to take in because it's clear, makes total sense and also has some inspirational advice and tips which you can actually use and make a big difference. It covers everything you could want to know from how to over come nerves (and actually says it's ok to feel nervous) to the more practical side of putting a presentation together. I have taken loads from this book and it's definitely helped me take my presentations and my presenting skills to the next level. I've got a few of these types of books and this is one of the few I would whole heartedly recommend.

    I found this book really useful. Some good sound basics for a presentation, but in the end its down to the person involved, however with the basics in place, it certainly helps. Easy to order and delivery was within a few days.
