"These days, it's not just corporate marketing directors tasked with giving computer-based presentations--anyone forced to stand in front of a crowd and talk for more than three minutes had better know how to put together a slide presentation. You're not a professional designer, but you want your slides to look professional. What do you do? Enter Robin Williams, the beloved, best-selling non-designer's designer (with over 850,000 copies of The Non-Designer's Design Book in print!) who has taught an entire generation the basics of design and typography. In The Non-Designer''s Presentation Book, Robin expands upon the design principles introduced in her award-winning Non-Designer's series. She explains four fundamental principles of good design as applied to digital presentations, and adds four more principles specific to clear communication with slides. Whether you work with a Mac or PC, PowerPoint or Keynote, let Robin guide you, in her signature, light-hearted style, through the entire process of creating a presentation--from using the right software to organizing your ideas to designing effective, beautiful slides that won't put your audience to sleep."-- Provided by publisher.

I was first introduced to Robin Williams' books from the Non-Designer's Design Book, so I figured this would be worth looking at even if only for a change of perspective on presentation design. I highly recommend this and the Design book for anyone even at the intermediate level as Williams covers a lot of little details that might seem obvious as what-not-to-do, but yet they're pretty common faux pas for effective presentations. Even if you're a seasoned presenter, I'd recommend taking a peek to brush up on tips!
