Like every perennial geek out there, talking is not really my thing. Joey Asher does a remarkable job of putting together a set of rules, frameworks and guidelines to follow, to ace that Tech Demo/Presentation. You don't realize it and probably don't give enough credit to it, but there are many intricacies to the art of presenting and vowing your audience. And Joey Asher gives it the scientific treatment that it deserves. Now, that is something that the geek in me, can wrap my head around.

An interesting aspect about this book is that it states many things that may be common sense. However, it explains why they are common sense. Moreover, it teaches techniques to solve some very common problems.

After reading this book, I really feel I'm a better presenter. It is not the first time I'm presenting something and I remember some advice contained in the book... and that definitely makes this book worth it.

The tips are good, but author is an ass. He looks down on people for using the term "NDA" because he never heard it before.
