Really good book about how to organize and put together a presentation. Excellent advice on preparing, engaging and delivering content to your audience.

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.
