100 Things Every Presenter Needs to Know About People by Susan Weinschenk
I like Susan Weinschenk's other book, "100 Things Every Designer Needs to Know About People" and always felt that it was unnecessarily restricting itself to a certain audience when it contains so much information that could also be useful for presenters. So I'm glad to see she wrote a book aimed at presenters.
Not surprisingly, this book repeats quite a bit of the information from the "Designer" book. That's not a problem. The problem is that there simply aren't 100 things that every presenter needs to know (about people). Some of the "things" in the book are a stretch and quite a few more are only relevant to certain types of presentations (e.g. sales pitch, seminars) but not relevant for "every" presentation. But I guess "71 (or so) things every presenter needs to know about people" wouldn't have made a catchy title.
Still, there's a lot of useful content in this book and the format makes it easy to digest it in small pieces. As a bonus, there's an appendix where she describes her "magic" formula for presentations. If you are a presenter (of any form), you should check this book out and see if it seems useful to your situation.
Should you get this book if you already have the "Designer" book? That's a tough one. There are some bits and pieces specifically for presenters in here that aren't in the "Designer" book. I'm just not sure if it's worth getting both, though. I happened to get the ebook version with a massive discount so I'm not complaining.
