Seriously, the guru of presentations is Garr Reynolds,  the blog master of the must read Presentation Zen. He recently published a book which is not surprisingly titled Presentation Zen (Amazon link). When you have a winner, stick with it.

Reynold’s was invited to speak at Google as part of their Authors@Google Series on March 21, 2008. From YouTube:

Presentation designer and internationally acclaimed communications expert Garr Reynolds, creator of the most popular Web site on presentation design and delivery on the net — presentationzen.com — shares his experience in a provocative mix of illumination, inspiration, education, and guidance that will change the way you think about making presentations with PowerPoint or Keynote.

Presentation Zen challenges the conventional wisdom of making “slide presentations” in today’s world and encourages you to think differently and more creatively about the preparation, design, and delivery of your presentations. Garr shares lessons and perspectives that draw upon practical advice from the fields of communication and business. Combining solid principles of design with the tenets of Zen simplicity, this book will help you along the path to simpler, more effective presentations.
