When we learn to present naked, we reach our audiences by communicating the essence of the message, stripping away all that is unnecessary and embracing the ideas of simplicity, clarity, honesty, integrity, and passion. If "slideware" is used, the slides never steal the show or rise above serving a strong but simple supportive role. The ideas in the presentation may or may not be radical, earth shattering, or new, but there is freshness to the approach and content that makes a lasting impression. In this invaluable resource from the author for the best-selling books Presentation Zen and Presentation Zen Design, you will discover how to get to the core of your message and deliver presentations that are as natural as they are memorable. Whether you are just in the planning stages or need advice for a talk that begins in an hour, you'll find wisdom in The Naked Presenter that you can use to connect deeply with your audience and deliver a great presentation.

    這本是在講presetation,講得還不錯,跟《講演之道》相比,內容簡潔很多不過該提到的還是都有提到,B鍵可以全屏黑我簡報這麼久居然都不知道。

    Più manuale di filosofia che altro. Sicuramente alcuni consigli interessanti, ma se avete letto Presentation Zen dello stesso autore, allora questo forse non serve.

    非常好的建議,上兩本《簡報藝術2.0》都是關於如何做好簡報的,這本是關於報告時的注意事項等等。

    都非常好。

    簡報的根基:作為真實的自己

    這本書是一本簡單的書,
    卻也是一本可以重複翻閱的書,
    書中沒有太多艱澀的道理,
    卻有許多已經早被遺忘的智慧。

    透過作者的提醒,
    讓我們找回沒有使用簡報軟體之前簡報的目的:
    創造貢獻 (Contribution), 連結 (Connect)
    並造成改變 (Change).
