I've been a fan of Dr. Abela's Extreme Presentation method (and his earlier Chart Chooser tool), for a couple of years. I've used the technique firsthand, and seen how effective it is.
This new work is an excellent extension of Dr. Abela's earlier contributions. It begins with a great Slide Chooser tool, which helps you select the best slide layout for your presentation objectives and audience. The rest of the book provides examples of each of the slide layouts in action, using actual presentation slides from dozens of major corporations. These phenomenal examples really help to drive home how to get the most of each slide layout.
An earlier reviewer complained about the fact that the slides are in black and white. Who cares? You could apply virtually any color scheme to these images, to fit your corporate or personal branding, and they would be equally effective. (I actually like the black and white images; they give you the freedom to imagine the slides with your own color scheme.)
Personally, I am astounded at the breadth of these examples. It must have taken the authors months to obtain the permissions to reprint them at all! We are all the beneficiaries of their tenacity in that endeavor.
I also love that each design is accompanied by template sources for the slides in question, for those of us who don't like to reinvent wheels. I've already explored some of those online resources, and I know that they will also come in handy.
I would recommend this book to anyone seeking to improve his/her presentation effectiveness. I will be consulting it often.
Thank you, Dr. Abela and Mr. Radich. This is a great resource!
