I can't recommend this edition of this book more highly — provided you own an iPad. As you might expect from the author of a book on presentations, the "Made for iBooks" version of the book has been lovingly crafted for meaningful interactivity. The lessons are so good I feel as if I have been given an unfair secret weapon for spreading ideas. This and a few hours spent learning to use Keynote well are probably worth a semester of business school. If you are reading the book on a phone, the "Made for iBooks" version is probably not as compelling. In fact, the author has free HTML5 versions of her book that are probably adequate for other platforms.55
Taking learning to a whole other level!55
This book, along with David Sparks Paperless, are not just awesome in fulfilling their intended purposes; they are incredible showcases of iBooks technology. Yeah, you could buy it on Kindle. But in the hands of a good production team, a "text" becomes an experience. I'm not only learning a lot from Duarte; I'm growing a new appreciation for my iPad. If you write, this book will not only inspire your presentations, it will inspire you to make your next project an iBook. Beautiful!55
Resonate has become a primer on how you can become a hero by making your audience the hero!55
Resonate is a self guided how-to book that will teach you to rethink presentations. I recomend this book to any professional or student who wants a significant edge on connecting with; and influencing others.55
