  Bad slides
 Content-free
What we want to see:

       Simple
       Legible
      Engaging
BUT...
Houston, we
have a problem!
THIS BOOK IS
YOUR SOLUTION
So open your wallet.
     And buy it.
Then open your mind.
     And read it.
Then open your heart.
      And do it.
THANK YOU!

Guy Kawasaki's foreword for Presentation Zen

Published on

These are the slides used for the foreword in the 2008 international best-seller called "Presentation Zen." Guy thought it would be fun to do it in slide form rather than the traditional book foreword. A lot of people have asked for the slides. Here they are. Sorry, only PDF is available. 15 individual slides.
