Review quote

"As a multi-title Dummies author, I am very impressed by the depth of Prezi for Dummies . It's hard enough to write a book that explains a software program from the point of view of readers who has never used it before. It's even harder to write a book that puts a new software into perspective and links it to classic visual thinking and storytelling techniques...explaining not only how to use it, but when and why from a content and message point of view." (Roger C. Parker, Published & Profitable Blog )
