My Current Professional Reading

I just bought a few new books. I think I need to improves my speaking and my PPT slides.
I am halfway through this book and it’s awesome:
PresentationZen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery by Garr Reynolds.
On the bedside table and awaiting cracked spines are:
Beyond Bullet Points from Microsoft press by Cliff Atkinson
Rick Altman’s Why Most PowerPoint Presentations Suck and how you can make them better.
Clear and to The Point: 8 Psychological Principles for Compelling PowerPoint Presentations by Stephen M. Kosslyn.
I am also looking forward to reading SLA Commnuictaion Diretcor’s new book: Tough Questions — Good Answers: Taking Control of Any Interview by Tom Calcagni.
That’ll make a few more airport and plane trips more bearable. Hopefully it will make my speeches more bearable too!
I also highly recommend this post:
Talk Good: Giving Effective Presentations by Peter Bromberg at Library Garden blog.
He provides a bunch of very good links to his top 10 presentation tips sites. (There’s actually more than 10.)
Gotta get better every day. I’ve got a week’s worth of reading. Yay.
Stephen
