Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As a multi-title Dummies author, I am very impressed by the depth of Prezi for Dummies. It's hard enough to write a book that explains a software program from the point of view of readers who has never used it before.
It's even harder to write a book that puts a new software into perspective and links it to classic visual thinking and storytelling techniques…explaining not only how to use it, but when and why from a content and message point of view." (Roger C. Parker, Published & Profitable Blog)

    Prezi

    It is a waste of time. Prezi shows you a tutorial when you sign up and tells you everything you need to know

    Not recommended

    Even though this book was only purchased a month ago, (and was still a first printing) it was completely out of date. Prezi changed the way you navigate in 2012, and this book is so out of date it was useless--so I took it back.

    Little detail

    A lot of information about good presentations but very little about how prezi works. Sorry I spent the money.
