Resonate a New Book by Nancy Duarte

Nancy Duarte, author of slide:ology: The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations
and renowned presentation expert has recently published a new book: resonate: Present Visual Stories that Transform Audiences. I just picked it up and I'll get you a full review shortly, but I wanted to point out that it's not just about how to make a good PowerPoint presentation, but about how to communicate in a way that is visual, and connects with your audience in a powerful, emotional, impactful way.
Forbes’ Bruce Upbin managed to boil it down to forty-six words: The conclusions are: Don’t be too cerebral. Tell stories. Figure out what the audience cares about. Create common ground with them. Move back and forth between opposing ideas to create energy. Deliver facts but put them in context and make them shocking if possible. Find inspiration anywhere you can.
