Best-selling author and popular speaker Garr Reynolds is back in this best-selling book, Presentation Zen, in which he showed students there is a better way to reach the audience through simplicity and storytelling, and gave them the tools to confidently design and deliver successful presentations.


In this edition, Garr gives his students new, fresh examples to draw inspiration from, with a whole new chapter for those who present on more technical and educational topics based on techniques used by many presenters who give high-level talks at TED and other powerhouse events. Whether the student is in research, technology, business, or education—this book will show them how to take what could look like a really dry presenation and reinvigorate the material in totally fresh (and sometimes interactive!) ways that will make it memorable and resonate with the audience.


Staying true to the mission of the first), Garr combines solid principles of design with the tenets of Zen simplicity to help readers along the path to simpler, more effective presentations that will be appreciated, remembered, and best of all, acted upon.
