    1. What will you learn from this book? Crap and more crap. I mean that in a good way, though. Mnemonics are useful things – but what is really odd about this book is that she doesn’t draw any attention to it at all. She has organised her principles of good design into two groups of four – for the content Clarity, Relevance, Animation and Plot, and for the slides, Contrast, Repetition, Alignment and Proximity. In the only other of her books I’ve read, The Non-Designer’s Design Book (wonder [...]


    2. Nothing I haven't seen before in other books or on other websites, but the information is presented nicely and organized well.I probably wouldn't have gone out of my way to read or buy this book if it weren't for class, though.


    3. This book is awesome, straightforward, and clear. No more excuses for suck-ass Powerpoints. While the example may not be as superlative as you may dream about, I found that their clarity and directness more than compensate for glitz and glamour. Buy this now!


    4. This was the fastest textbook I've ever had, gotta love a book full of visuals when that is your learning style. It is for LIBS602. It had some good tips in it, and makes me wish I had an apple computer even more than I already do.



    5. An excellent and practical guide for creating powerful multimedia presentations. This particular book also contains some nice "how to's" for both Keynote and Powerpoint.


    6. Ideal for presenters--parallels with some of Tufte's ideas. Lots of graphical examples clearly juxtapose the beautiful and the ugly.
