Four-color inserts that display examples of professional presentations-- Specifics are highlighted with callouts and referenced to the pages in the book where the process is explained. Brief essays on how to get professional results--From creating an effective outline, using color to influence an audience, to laying out a slide with precision. Short, practical steps for accomplishing basic tasks. Tip, New, and "Professional Results" icons--The "Professional Results" icon will be like a tip icon, but instead of showing how to do something more quickly or easily, it will show how to create a special effect or specific result. Learning from other PowerPoint users--Actual presentations to help readers create their own professional results. These will be displayed as needed in figures throughout the book. The right philosophy--Strong emphasis on the fact that a presentation is created to communicate ideas in a compelling, graphic manner and that the specific tasks required to create a presentation should be chosen with that goal in mind. Added value--Companion clip art, sounds, presentations posted on Osborne's web site.
