    Stunningly Effective ¿ Easy Read

    I cannot recommend this book enough. Easy enough to read in a day or a weekend, the book flows effortlessly from the planning stages, through creation, presentation, and post-presentation for just about any speaking engagement you can imagine. The ideas are given clear reference points for large and small audiences alike. The book is broken into many small chapters, only a few pages long each, and no point overstays its welcome. Again, a really quick easy read, with an enormous amount of value.

    I read this book on a Saturday, applied its principles to create a presentation deck Sunday and Monday and delivered the presentation Tuesday morning. It was a rousing success, and my clients left energized and excited to move forward with our ideas (even if I was a bit under-rehersed). I couldn't think of a more clear-cut success story than that. This book is amazing.

    Computer Reading

    Why can I read stuff on my nook and on my phone, but I cant read it on my computer? You leave your nook at work, and have your phone charging, but prefer to just read on the computer, and you cant? Fix this!
