Comments

Caroline Schneider

Garr: thanks for mentioning this new book. I'll order it 'subito'. Regarding your presentation: Seth Godin Action Man is very funny!! And lots of lessons from the book obviously come full circle with your approach to presentations. Moreover, I like how you got inspired to create a comic yourself.
I find the trailer for the book very good because it features some of the Made-to-stick-qualities: Excellent example for simplicity (the manga-style of the book), unexpectedness (e.g. the type of music for a career-advisor-book-trailor -- and the 'secret-to-be-discovered' procedure), concreteness, emotionality and a story!
To close this long comment (sorry for it): I'm not into 'Mangas' but the more unexpected reading Dan Pink's book will be for me. Do you know the comic "Persepolis" by Marjane Satrapi? That's done in a very good way (simplicity), too.

Garr,

Thanks for the review...already in the wishlist. By the way fantastic slides the ones you show us!!! (they remind me of the long way I still have to travel in my slide design and why you are my presentation & slide "guru").

Best regards

Charles Martineau

im ordering this book right now!

Michael Sporer

Dan sent me an email when the books was being released. Nice short read that really makes sense. Like your presentation too, Garr.

Daniel González

Hi!
I'm a Law student from Spain. I began to read your comments a couple months ago, and I found them extraordinarily interesting. I even translated to Spanish and printed your tips about presentations, and already apply them in a class presentation. So, I must to thank you for it.
This book seems also very remarkable, so I'll look for it.
Take care, and thank you, again!

PS. Please, excuse my English; it is not my mother tongue, though I try to improve it.

When I saw there were 184 slides in your presentation, I thought, "Holy Cow!" I mean, there are only 160 pages in the book. But I'm glad I clicked, that is one of the best presentations I've ever seen and the content sold the book.

Brian Pauw

WOah, すごいーです!

Those slides are awesome and funny!. Can I embed them (with attribution) on my own blog or would you rather have me link to the entire post?

Dan's book is fantastic.
As a guy approaching his mid-50's, okay, I'm already in my mid'50's, Dan's six lessons are right on the money. I've been living these lessons for thirty years. I just didn't know it. There was no plan to live without a plan.
Oddly enough, I ended up doing planning with groups, as one of my skils sets. The twist is it isn't about the plan, but about the relationships formed around their share values and vision for what they can achieve. So, Dan's book is really quite good and should be read by families, teams, and friends, together.

Garr,your presentation of Dan's ideas is really spectacular. When I write my review of Dan's book for my blog, I'm going to embed your slideshow because it is the perfect complement to Dan's manga masterpiece.

Hi Garr,
You're changing my life! Tonight I've watched your presentation to Google staff, blogged about you, and discovered this amazing blog that I am adding to my google reader. Have to give a presentation in two weeks that's a big deal for me -hope I can pull it off using your tips -I'll take a few tips from Dan and persist and believe in myself. Thanks.

Jenny Luca.

Johnny Bunko - Great read and recommendation, Garr!

I picked this up upon your recommendation here at PZ, and read through it in an hour. Smart approach with solid material ... I recommend it to people as well!

Garr, thanks for the great presentation and for putting me on to Dan's latest book. I loved the six career lessons and feel that they are applicable to everyone who is contemplating a change in their working life, not just those who are starting out. I shall be ordering a copy of it tonight and sharing it with my clients.

I love your site and found your PZ book one of the best reads of this year. Challenging, fun, informative and beautifully presented, it was a joy to read. You taught me a lot!

Michael Gowin

Great presentation, Garr, on Dan Pink's book. Kind of funny that the presentation has nearly as many slides as the book has pages.

I've been recommending PZ and Johnny Bunko to my students and the feedback has been very positive. I teach a class in business communication and we've just finished two weeks on presenting, something I believe is a critical (and fun) skill. The students have been exposed to ideas from PZ, Cliff Atkins' BBP, Made to Stick, and A Whole New Mind. Their ideas about presentations are changing--they're beginning to see them not as tortures to be endured but as opportunities to tell persuasive, visual stories.

Patrick Johnson

Garr,

Thanks for putting this presentation together friend. In 5 minutes, I was able to get an overview and it resonated with my right brain thinking! I'm going to get a copy of the book for my 16 year old daughter.

I just read Presentation Zen on a trip to LA and learned so much. Keep spreading the presentation gospel.

Garr, I got Johnny Bunko yesterday and read it this morning in one go. Apart from the content so perfectly outlined in your presentation two points made me laugh out loud: "No. Life isn't an algebra problem. -- Well, actually, it's like an algebra problem painted by Salvador Dali." and "Heroes isn't real, Carlos. It's fiction. This is nonfiction." Very deep. Like this kind of humour.

Oscar Llamas

Nice, Garr your slides made want to get the book, hehe. Curiously I, I was Googling some information for my work, and I also spotted this site http://flashforlearning.com/ which has an interview with Dan Pink. Destiny wants me to read it, I must be doing something wrong with my career path, lol.

Stormy

Garr,

Thanks for the pointer to Dan's new book as well as the great slide presentation summary. As a fan of your book, Presentation Zen, I'm wondering if you can share how long it took you to make the slideset.

I've tried the one picture/word per slide model for several of my keynotes like http://www.stormyscorner.com/2008/04/would-you-do-it.html and gotten lots of good feedback. It takes me a long time to create them and I just wondered how much time you spend - am I slow or should I be spending even more time?

Thanks,

Stormy

great slides Garr! you put a lot of work into that! well, I guess you are an expert presenter so should be expected. My friend Melissa Pierce got to interview Dan Pink for our movie "Life In Perpetual Beta: Examining the Evolution of Purpose". He's really cool. I will look more into your PZ stuff and likely hook up with you soon, because I have a couple projects where I need to be an expert presenter! ttys ~V

I was in training for rigor and relevance when I saw a link to Dan's book about right brain thinkers. His new book looks like it will change the lives of my students. Thanks, Garr, for helping me make a difference.
