Name Instructor Course Date Synopsis Pages 1 – 50 The author begins by giving the importance of preparation before the actual presentation. He recommends an approach that has proved successful over the years – the PAL. This acronym stands for purpose audience and logistics. In this approach the speakers are supposed to analyze the purpose of their presentation. In case the presentation focuses on a wide area they should settle on the most dominant purpose of the presentation. They should get to know the profile needs and interests of their audiences. Finally the presenter should factor in logistical considerations such as the duration of presentations. Afterward the speaker should come up with a central theme for the presentation. While preparing for the presentation the author maintains that you should brainstorm and then organize the information in an orderly manner. He further promotes the incorporation of other aspects such as book therefore covers almost every aspect of the presentation leaving the reader with very few questions if any. Moreover the language used in the book is quite simple and therefore easy to read. Having read the book for the first time in one sitting I would also recommend the book because of its relatively short length as it would be easily read in the shortest time possible. Furthermore the impact of the book goes far beyond just presentation. It gives vital guidelines on how to handle various issues such as fear personal confidence and many other aspects relevant to everyday life. The book therefore proves extremely important in improving presentation skills and communication skills in general.
