    DescriptionOver the last fifteen years, professional communications have changed drastically. Presentations are the primary way we communicate. There is a proliferation of presentation software in the workplace, but there are no documented best-practices for how to communicate optimally in this ubiquitous medium. There has never been a gold standard collection of best practices for telling the visual story until now. Whether you're a CEO, senior manager or educator, you create presentations that have incredibly high stakes. Stock value, sales revenue, career promotions and behavior changes are all influenced by presentations daily. Those of us who want to get ahead have had a few guides that teach us how to create 'sticky' verbal messages and make a successful delivery. But what about the slides themselves? Are they art or science, or both?If you 're tired of stagnating in your career or getting marginal feedback when you present to pivotal audiences, this book will change your approach, process and expectations for developing visual aides. It will make the difference between a good presentation and a great one. The personality of the book is smart and informative. It would be like the merging of an informative Strunk and White's "Elements of Style" with a spunky Anne Lamott - but it happens to all be in living color. Useful, yet with doses of reality sprinkled in. It will be referenced enough to be kept permanently on a desk as an essential guide yet profound enough to spark viral intrigue. For the first time, we have translated much of the design language into laymen 's terms.

    Review quote
    "Wer brillieren möchte und eine geschmeidige Vorstellung abliefern will, der schaut am besten in das Buch slide:ology von Nancy Duarte rein. Das ist wunderbar illustriert, hervorragend strukturiert und äußerst lehrreich." - intro.de, Juni 2009 "Das Buch weist den Weg zurück zum Storyteller und gleichzeitig nach vorne zu Essenz, Präsenz und Individuum. Es ist eine Kampfansage an konventionelle Design- und Präsentationsansätze durch konkrete Lösungsvorschläge von der Seitenaufteilung, Art der Farbkombination, Bildauswahl über die kreative Elaboration von Ideen hin zur Art und Weise der Durchführung." - dotnetpro VIP-Tipp, Juni 2009 "Dieses Buch [sollte] gezielt von denen gelesen und angewendet werden, die MS Power Point bzw. OpenOffice Impress und Konsorten nicht mehr aus dem täglichen Leben streichen können - allein schon, damit Präsentationen zukünftig für deren Publikum angenehmer werden." - KaffeeKlatsch, Februar 2009 "Dieses Buch [...] liefert das Handwerskzeug zur Gestaltung richtig guter Folien. Pflichtlektüre für jeden Vortragenden!" - Markus Völter in dotnetpro 3/2009 "Ein gutes Buch zum Thema Präsentationen zu finden, ist nicht unbedingt einfach. Eine sehr positive, inspirierende Ausnahme ist Nancy Duartes [...] slide:ology. Nach der Lektüre dieses Bilder- und Ideenbuchs gibt es jedenfalls gar keine Ausflüchte für langweilige, schlecht gestaltete Präsentationen mehr, sondern in Zukunft leichter, verständlicher, eleganter, emotionaler, visueller und professioneller zu präsentieren." - screen-online.de, November 2008
