This book shows how ripping up the traditional presentation dos and don'ts will make you a better, more relaxed, and more effective presenter. It takes on over a dozen pieces of "good" presentation advice and reveals why they actually make you worse. It also features stories of people who not only were able to become great presenters by being "bad" but actually came to enjoy it.
