I searched in vain through a lot of books on speaking and presenting until I found this one. It is packed with straightforward, useful information - not fluff. I had an important presentation with a group of 2 others and found myself quoting the book constantly to the others on my team. We used many of the techniques from planning through delivery and the presentation was outstanding. From the titles that I have looked through, this one seems to have the most solid information.
