I have just received a book entitled, Slide:ology, The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations, by Nancy Duarte. This book is a MUST READ for anyone who uses PowerPoint! It is an easy read and the book itself is very well organized. There is a companion website that allows you to download a number of the sample presentations in the book so you can see first hand how the files were set up.
This book is NOT a PowerPoint instruction manual! It teaches you VISUAL COMMUNICATION! How do you use presentations to communicate? Most preachers have been trained in verbal communication and not visual communication. When they jump into PowerPoint they stumble with how to give power and impact to their message using such a visual medium. This book will help from the moment you read the first few pages.
Give your audience a break…read this book!
