Being in the military, I am very familiar with death by PowerPoint! Our presentations are frequently done as a group of slides the presenter has never seen before, until they start speaking to the audience. I read this book very slowly, just one lesson a day to let them sink in. I found that when I gave presentations and followed as much of the advice as I could, I had very good reactions from the audience. Even when I could do nothing about the PowerPoint, you really can always take at least a few moments to review your presentation, connect with your audience, and make the best of things. Of course, when I was able to make my own slides, the result was even better! I feel like I learned a lot. This should be required reading for people designing the presentations we must give.

This is a collection of well-known points on speaking that are repeated throughout the book. Often one basic speech point will be repeated three or more times. To disguise this, the author has collected snippets of stories from famous people that illustrate the same point in different ways. SPOILERS: Here are a few of the tips included: Pause before you speak, Listen to your audience, and Repeat the audience's question. If you have never heard these sorts of tips before in a speaking book and want to read them repeatedly in a slightly different way in page after page of anecdotes that are only vaguely related to speaking...you've found your book!

This is a good book. The lessons are great, and really helpful to me. I can get nervous in front of presentations, and some of the lessons addressed that. The examples were great, and the book flowed well. It was interesting and entertaining -not a bit dry. If you want to learn how to present, teach, or improve your public speaking skills in anyways, you should read this book.

Weissman has hit a home run with this book. Fortunately, the art and science of winning presentations has been blessed with a plethora of new and engaging literature over the past few years, and this is another great example. Weissman has added to this most recent body of research by providing us with a refreshing approach - using real world examples to illustrate great presentation principles. Just like the outstanding teacher who manages to make complex lessons more clear and interesting with the use of such "real world" examples, Weissman's stories give us one more way to learn and retain the principles of good presentation. Congratulations, Jerry!

Having digested a number of books on public speaking and giving dynamic presentations, I found Presentations in Action especially delightful. Each teaching point offers an example of real people-- how some did it with great skill and others not so well. The 80 chapters are short, giving you the take away to readily apply. I'll continue to pull this gem from my shelf for encouragement, a boost of confidence and reminders of what brings excellence to each facet of my presentations. Thank you Jerry Weissman!

A few good points, but they are awash in a great deal of fluff and repetitive text.

This is definitely a book for less experienced presenters. If you do presentations regularly there is little here for you. If you are new to presenting, there a some decent foundational recommendations.

Pros:
Short chapters
Anecdote style

Cons:
Much repetition
Not much use to experienced folks

A large part of my job involves public speaking and I teach at a number of schools and I found a number of nuggets of good advice that I am sure will make me a better speaker. Anyone who teaches or speaks on a regular basis will benefit from the advice in this book.
This book is simply the best book I read so far on this topic. It combines all major parts of a successful presentation, and is also lined with good examples and anecdotes. Not only will this book help you improve your own presentation style, but it will also make you much more critical of presentations given by others.
The challenge is only to put all the learned material in practice...Good luck with that!
