Interesting new take on a much discussed topic.  Refreshing, accessible and useful information that can be applied to my next presentation. 4 stars because I would have liked a few more PPT technical tips but realize that the author was shooting in a different direction (he says as much in the 'what is not covered' section) Recommended to all business presenters.
