    Comprehensive Treatment of Public Speaking

    The Presentations Kit is fairly comprehensive in that it covers the technical aspects of public speaking in a straightforward manner - everything from posture, voice, what to/not to eat and drink prior to, and environment, among other things. It also covers the art aspect - the intangibles that in my opinion really help a presenter nail a talk. Overall a great book but there are some areas that could have been improved upon. The design of the book was fairly plain, which if improvements were made in the overall visuals of the book would really help to solidify the author's message. In addition I would have liked to have seen more focus on the "art" aspect of presenting as this is where the magic occurs - presently only one chapter is dedicated to this. Finally, many of the technology aspects of the discussion, for example overhead projectors and transparencies, are fairly dated. A great book with sage advice and highly recommended for those wishing to improve their public speaking skills, but the improvements would put it over the top.
