Over the last fifteen years, professional communications have changed drastically. Presentations are the primary way we communicate. There is a proliferation of presentation software in the workplace, but there are no documented best-practices for how to communicate optimally in this ubiquitous medium. There has never been a gold standard collection of best practices for telling the visual story until now. Whether you're a CEO, senior manager or educator, you create presentations that have incredibly high stakes. Stock value, sales revenue, career promotions and behavior changes are all influenced by presentations daily. Those of us who want to get ahead have had a few guides that teach us how to create 'sticky' verbal messages and make a successful delivery. But what about the slides themselves? Are they art or science, or both?If you 're tired of stagnating in your career or getting marginal feedback when you present to pivotal audiences, this book will change your approach, process and expectations for developing visual aides. It will make the difference between a good presentation and a great one. The personality of the book is smart and informative.
It would be like the merging of an informative Strunk and White's "Elements of Style" with a spunky Anne Lamott - but it happens to all be in living color. Useful, yet with doses of reality sprinkled in. It will be referenced enough to be kept permanently on a desk as an essential guide yet profound enough to spark viral intrigue. For the first time, we have translated much of the design language into laymen 's terms.

    不是教你powerpoint秘技,而是從設計角度構思powerpoint,特別質賞前半部分的設計概念,後面教字體、多媒體的反而都學過了。

    不是收集包山包海的範例集,也不是 Powerpoint 或 Keynote 的操作手冊,而是教你怎麼改善你的簡報。

    過去很習慣簡報的母片外圍會有一大片底圖,但既然內容被包圍住了,就不容易形成視覺焦點。作者認為這樣像是浪費建築坪效,應該要讓母片盡可能簡單乾淨,不要佔去太多位置。甚至企業識別 (logo) 也不需要每一頁都出現。

    字要夠大,內容要夠精簡,否則就不需要做成投影片,只要發給大家一人一份講義文件帶回家讀就好了。

    對我而言,這本書傳達了嶄新的簡報設計觀念。
    簡報應該要:
    1.重要是點子,先用便利貼、速寫來構想。
    2.利用圖案、示意圖、圖像。
    3.文字簡潔,頂多就標題與一層條列式清單就夠了。
    4.字要夠大,不要小於28pt。
    5.讓文字依序出現。
    ....
    很值得要利用簡報來發表想法的人參考。

    南西的兩本簡報著作,在同一個月分,由兩家出版社分別代理、中譯。
    這本簡報學,比較偏向是視覺傳達的角度,
    南西不愧是當代的PPT達人,在這本書內,可以吸收到整理過的視覺處理原則,
    也許有些原則是我們製作PPT的時候都會這麼做,但南西厲害的地方在於它能夠把這麼做比較好的原因說得很清楚,用歸納整理的方式,有條理的分類。
    如果你的PPT組織、架構、演說的能力已經不錯了,那麼這本書可以幫助你在視覺傳達的層次上更上一層樓。
