Full of stock photos of decorative people, this book is a blend of Garr Reynold's expertise, lessons from Asian marital arts gurus, and some statements of fellow presenters. While many points are true (be there in advance, connect with your audience, don't read your slides), many tips have a touch of truism. Maybe it's a cultural thing, but the tons of stock photos and the colorful headings made me want to buy the book. Afterwards, I was disappointed by the lack of concrete examples and the same elements revealed themselves as mere decoration without any meaning. Not recommended for presenters with some experience.

If I wanted to recommend one book about how to give presentations this would be it. ( )

A short well-written book on presenting confidently. Too many times, we rely on tools too much instead of the content of our presentation. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0321704452, Paperback)

When we learn to present naked, we reach our audiences by communicating the essence of the message, stripping away all that is unnecessary and embracing the ideas of simplicity, clarity, honesty, integrity, and passion. If "slideware" is used, the slides never steal the show or rise above serving a strong but simple supportive role. The ideas in the presentation may or may not be radical, earth shattering, or new, but there is freshness to the approach and content that makes a lasting impression.

In this invaluable resource from the author for the best-selling books Presentation Zen and Presentation Zen Design, you will discover how to get to the core of your message and deliver presentations that are as natural as they are memorable. Whether you are just in the planning stages or need advice for a talk that begins in an hour, you'll find wisdom in The Naked Presenter that you can use to connect deeply with your audience and deliver a great presentation.
