No matter where you are on the organizational ladder, the odds are high that you've delivered a high-stakes presentation to your peers, your boss, your customers, or the general public.


Presentation software is one of the few tools that requires professionals to think visually on an almost daily basis. But unlike verbal skills, effective visual expression is not easy, naturally or actively taught in school or business training programs. slide:ology fills that void.


Written by Nancy Duarte, Principal of Duarte Designs, the firm that created the presentation for Al Gore's Oscar-winning film, An Inconvenient Truth, this book is full of practical approaches to visual story development that can be applied by anyone. The book combines conceptual thinking and inspirational design, with insightful case studies from the world's leading brands. With slide:ology you'll learn to:



 -      Connect with special audiences

-      Turn ideas into informative graphics

-      Use sketching and diagramming techniques effectively

-      Create graphics that enable audiences to process information easily

-      Develop truly influential presentations

-      Utilize presentation technology to your advantage.



Millions of presentations and billions of slides have been produced - most of them miss the mark. slide:ology will challenge traditional approach to creating slides by teaching you how to be a visual thinker. And it will help your career by creating momentum for your cause.


"slide:ology is a book that's as beautiful as it is educational, as inspiring as it is practical. If you read this book and act on the valuable lessons inside, you'll design and deliver the kind of presentations that get noticed and remembered. You might even develop a presentation that changes the world. Nancy takes you on an illuminating journey into visual aids that will transform the way you create and deliver your presentations."
