A zippy lesson made even zippier by the incomparable Grover Gardner, this is an exceptionally useful guide to making public presentations. There are excellent ideas about using flip charts and other visual aids and managing Q&A sessions so they enhance control of the message rather than risk losing it. The guidelines for holding an audience's attention are intuitive and easy to remember. Beyond mechanics, the author offers astute insights about the dynamic tension between what's in the presenter's mind and what is actually understood by the audience. The author's grasp of his material and experience coaching CEOs are obvious in every segment. He's an expert at presenting a huge amount of information in easily understood chunks.
