    Comments about oreilly Presentation Secrets:

    Excellent discussion of how to create and deliver presentations that would impact the audience. Content, style and delivery are discussed. I liked how the same principles (contrast, unity,etc) are applied to content, style, delivery.

    As a designer of my own presentation software, this book brought clarity to how I am thinking about the entire process from the inception to giving the presentation.
