Nothing new about that. What's special here is an easy-to-follow system that pretty much guarantees success by forcing you to think about what the audience needs to know, rather than what to put on a slide. It's a very solid approach and much more helpful than, "First, write down your goal."
The process starts with a MS Word template that is so simple, elegant and easy to use that I couldn't resist trying it. Once completed, it becomes a roadmap or specification that guides you in creating or finding images that best support the points you want to get across.
The author has distilled thousands of years of knowledge about effective communication - from Aristotle to recent research by educational psychologists - into a very simple and practical system. And should you for some reason want to delve into original sources, he credits them.
It's much more about content than the software, and assumes a rudimentary knowledge of PowerPoint. It does not include any of those ubiquitous thematic templates with design elements repeated on each slide, and it explains why they should be avoided. It does include a PowerPoint template to help organize and structure your presentation.
On the negative side, though the system is simple and elegant, the book less so. It would benefit from a good editing, paring it down to about a third its size. And its layout and design is less inviting than it might be.
But that doesn't detract from the value of the information, which includes advice on editing presentations ruthlessly and making the design simple, clear and attractive. The author has thoughtfully provided a concise summary of the system as appendices - not in the book but on the included CD. I suggest you print out appendices A, C, and D first, and use them as a guide through the text.
Beyond Bullet Points presents an approach to organizing and structuring a presentation that I find useful and effective. It draws on basic narrative structures found in film to create a framework for organizing a presentation into a story. The genius lies in helping people understand that presentations are a story, and need a setting, a protagonist, a conflict, a resolution, and action. This book explains each element and provides lots of guidance for why they are powerful and how to use that framework for creating presentations that get people to take action.
Also very effective were the suggestions on how to create presentations starting with outlines and speaker notes prior to creating slides. When I took this approach at work, it was incredibly useful because it helped people separate the story I would tell from the actual slides, so that for the first time the presentation was more of a performance and less of a barrage of bullet points.
On the negative side, this book is not a very good reference for those who are looking for more help with the graphics of their presentations. This is not a design book. And I think that the book could be about 100 pages shorter than it is.
Overall, I find this to be the best book I've found so far on how to present with presentation software. It has a great overall approach, lots of examples and resources (both online and in the CD).
If you do get it, I would not read it, but use it to look up the information you need. But even that is frustrating.
Get Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery instead, that book is easy to read and explains what you need to know in the most effective way.
