Overview

Garr Reynolds, author of the best-selling book on presentation design and delivery, is back with this newly revised edition of this classic book, Presentation Zen. Showing us there is a better way to reach your audience through simplicity and storytelling, Garr tackles the conventional wisdom of making presentations with slides and shares his approach to designing and delivering successful and provocative presentations. In this new edition, Garr includes fresh examples from which to draw inspiration, and offers techniques for cutting through the noise and distractions of modern life and truly engaging with your audiences in a meaningful way. Combining the solid principles of design with the tenets of Zen simplicity, Presentation Zen, Third Edition, puts you solidly on the path to creating simpler, more effective presentations that will be appreciated, remembered, and best of all, acted upon.

 

“Presentation Zen changed my life and the lives of my clients. The philosophy and approach so elegantly explained in Garr’s book will inspire your audience. Don’t even think of giving another presentation without it!”

Carmine Gallo

Author, The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs and Talk Like TED

 

“Garr has broken new ground in the way we think about the power of presentations, and more important, has taught an entire generation of communicators how to do a better job. Don’t miss this one.”

Seth Godin

Legendary presenter and author, This is Marketing

 

“If you care about the quality and clarity of your presentations–and you should–pick up this book, read every page, and heed its wisdom. Presentation Zen is a contemporary classic.”

Daniel H. Pink
