really liked it

Great book on presentation practices, though a bit naive to the needs of the business world. While I can see the power in practice of minimalist presentations and using story, I am a bit at odds with Reynolds take on applying this 100% of the time. As an evangelist (and ex-Apple employee) it makes perfect sense that he would want to connect with his audience (don't we all), but at times the dense information he states is the antithesis of the effective presentation is required. Still, he outlines great examples of good presentations, talks about the why of his philosophy, and brings it all together in a way that the reader is more capable of taking his method and applying bits and pieces of it in different ways and places.
