Whatcha Readin’ and Listenin’ To Wednesday: December 3, 2008
Ahh, Thanksgiving. One of my favorite holidays after Halloween. Seeing family was nice, but it gave me less time to read than during a typical week. At least the travel duties provided me many opportunities to listen to music.
I focused on only one book this week, but it was a whopper: Presentation Zen. This mind-stretching work offering insights into effective PowerPoint or Keynote presentations that rely more on simple figures than lists of bullets, more on images than on text.
To see some of Reynolds’s ideas in the hands of a skilled presenter, take a look at some of the presentations by Apple CEO Steve Jobs here.
