Congratulations! Best of luck with this, and if you need reviewers, consider me a volunteer!


Wow, I am really looking forward to your book!

By the way: you mentioned that there are already great books out there covering this topic. Which are your favourite ones?

Lauren Muney

Best wishes for the book - and for your time on the Oregon coast and Hawaii. I think I'd like Oregon more than Hawaii, actually.... btw, I do "poop" (give it away) frequently. This gets me much attention for my 'expertise' and stretches me in new venues. I often take challenging opportunities...

put me down for a copy for myself, and another dozen or so to hand out to my clients.

Great news on the book. I'm ready to make my Amazon pre-order!

Both of our sites (www.lifesworkgroup.com)are featured on Pam Slim's, Escape From Cubicle Nation website. I visited her site today and clicked on your webpage.

Great website. I will learn and apply your knowledge.

I sold my interest in a biotechnology company over 2 years and moved from San Diego to Portland, Oregon. Crazy move by some-brilliant move for my family and I.

I'm so glad you are discussing how special the Oregon coastline can be. We fulfilled a dream and purchased an Oregon beach house ourself.




1st time visitor, instant fan. Kick butt with the book.

What's the saying? "The mightiest river starts with a single drop of water." Imagine each keystroke as a rain drop and the sound of typing as the sound of a rain storm. Don't worry what comes out on screen; just enjoy the sound and know the sun comes after it. (end analogies)

Congratulations Garr - Presentation Zen has really helped me change the way I approach presentations and I'm grateful to you for sharing your wisdom. I look forward to the book.

Ianus Keller

Congratulations, I recognize your feelings after writing my PhD (in Europe you really produce a book). Your book will be great and I will email you some thoughts.

Paolo Pelloni

I have always enjoyed your site and being a publick speaking coach I found it very useful. It was interesting that I heard from your blog about the italian (Montemagno) presentation on blog at SMAU ... and I am italian!

My favourite book, that I quite often refer in my training, is You are the message by R. Aisles .... well maybe in a short time is going to be PZ? :)

Jason Kitcat

Wonderful news! Congratulation and I cannot wait for what I am sure will be an incredible book. Thank you for you generosity and time with this blog.


Excellent news!!!!


Hey, good news about the book, I'll be ordering it once it's released, all the best.

1. Welcome back to Oregon, for a brief time. It's a great place to return to from roaming - all the green and fresh air.

2. Very excited about the book. I'll consider and look through some notes and see if there's anything I have worth contributing. Your work has made a tremendous impact on mine, and I'm very grateful.

3. No blogging until September: not even... casual blogging? Like, hey, I went surfing today and it made me feel kinda zen? Come on, man, that's a long time in internet years! =) It'd be nice to get occasional updates, even if it's just, "yeah, still writing the book, it's going to be awesome, keep up the zen-like patience, ok?".


Congratulations! You'll love writing the book - once it is done :)


wishing you all the best

Good luck with the book Garr!

Most of the posts on the basics were enlightning to me and the Popular Posts bar on your blog has most of them.


As a biologist, I can identify with the thoughts by "Ted the MD" you posted a while back, and keep hoping you'll do more posts about scientific presentations. It'd be wonderful if your book had some examples of technical presentations, in addition to the more business-style slides you tend towards. Your advice is very relevant to my peers, and I very often find myself in lab meeting or a conference wishing they'd take advantage of it!

Best of luck with the book -- I enjoy reading your blog!


Congratulations! I have been a longtime reader though have never commented. I really love your blog and look forward to the book. Enjoi your time in Hawaii - and hope you take some more amazing pics and share! :)

Diego Rodriguez

Cool! Can't wait to read it.

Congratulations on the book.
I know exactly how excited you feel right now and how depressed you may be after a few hours in front of a white sheet of paper (at least, that's what it was like for me...).
Anyway as an author I would advise to just write and ignore the small voice in your head that says: "no that's not the right idea / timing / flow of thoughts / ...". You are not going to like your first version, but you're gonna need it to make a second, and a third,... until you like it.
Keep a small notebook and a pen with you day-and-night because the best ideas will strike you when you least expect them... and don't fool yourself that you will remember them.
I learn from your post that your deadlines are tight, and the only thing I can say is that it is the best for your creation (but not for your family life).
Finally, a suggestion: you could continue using your blog in order to 'test' some ideas or metaphors that you intend to use.
All the best and count on my support when your world falls apart (aka writer's block).

couldn't get my e-mails to go through for some reason, so I'm leaving this as a comment:

Hi Garr,

Congratulations on the book. I'm familiar with your work primarily from Presentation Zen.

I would be happy to provide some slides. Actually, why don't we do this: take an inventory of the what slides you may want to use, and I will send you high quality screengrabs of what you request.

All my presentations can be found here:


Also, would it be possible to include a link to my blog as part of the credit?

Logic + Emotion

Let me know what slides you need and I'll get on it. I'll also be happy to help promote the book on my blog, so if you ever want to do a QA let me know.

Talk soon.


Joachim Simon

Dear Garr, I have finally received your book now here in Germany. Thanks a lot for your contribution to the world of business and presentations. You did a great job and I am recommending this book to many people dealing with your topic. Thank you!
