I really like this book. So much that I’m reviewing it while on vacation. Advanced Presentations by Design takes a 10-step approach to writing and designing a presentation. Andrew Abela takes a methodical approach to creating a presentation that drives action. It’s a book that should be in everyone’s presentation library.
