    Review quote
    "Please don't buy this book! Once people start making better presentations, mine won't look so good. (But if you truly want to learn what works and how to do it right, Garr is the man to learn from.)" Seth Godin Speaker and Blogger Author, Meatball Sundae "Garr is a beacon of hope for frustrated audiences everywhere. His design philosophy and fundamental principles bring life to messages and can invigorate careers. His principles of simplicity are as much a journey of the soul as they are restraint of the mouse." Nancy Duarte CEO, Duarte Design "Presentation Zen is just fantastic. Best of all it's not another recipe book about "how to make slides" -- this is about re-imagining how your entire presentation will work together as a persuasive and integrated show, from conception through delivery. Awesome." Merlin Mann 43folders.com
