This book wants to take you beyond simple bullet points of text in PowerPoint. Most of the discussion involves using images in some clean way. It is here that you might run into problems, when attempting this for the first time. Wempen goes into a fair amount of detail. All the way from making artworking libraries to adding motion video. The latter can be especially attention grabbing to your audience, if done well. I would compare this book to Tufte's classic 'The Visual Display of Quantitative Information'. That book is independent of any editing tool or software. Leaving it free to focus strictly on teaching general guidelines. Wempen's book does speak to some of these guidelines. But the bulk of the book concentrates on the details of using PowerPoint. A nice complement to Tufte's book.
