I grabbed this to help me prepare to give a presentation. I’m always interested in improving my presentation skills, and this is a really practical book. Analysing a range of different “great” speeches, it shows an underlying pattern that fits them all. Show what is, show what could be, and bounce back and forth between the two, leading at the end to a lasting understanding of what can be, and motivating the audience to change.
If you’re interested in improving the way you present, this is worth a look.
