Congratulations Garr.


Tribes by Seth is highly recommendable, for any one who is interested in leadership as a tool for transformation and change. Those who avoid risk and act to preserve the status quo in organisations, will face the greatest risks in the future; while those who embrace change and avoids the status quo in organisations, will avoid these risks. Managers preserve status quo, while leaders promote change. And anyone can be a leader, if they have the passion and the ideas. Garr Reynolds and Presentation Zen proves that.

Thanks for the kind words Garr - that is some high-praise and I appreciate your friendship.

I have yet to dig into Tribes (still trying to slog through the writing of my book), but it makes me very proud to see how highly you ranked on that list.

It is very well-deserved and I am, without a question, in your Tribe as well. I have been reading and following presentation and design books and Blogs for years, but Presentation Zen is heads and shoulders above the Amazon list.

You deserve this high rank... but you also deserve a whole lot more. Mostly because the world is a better place with PZ in it - there's a lot less nodding off in meetings going on now.

Thanks for inspiring us all.

We are doing a building/renovation project at our school. We are depending on a large presentation to sell the project and get approval. I'm pushing the engineers to use visuals to support facts rather than just the facts themselves in the presentation. I learned much of that from Presentation Zen. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and helping others "change the world".

Wow. Thanks for including me on your site.

I'm going to have such a fun Saturday now. Because of this post, I got a ton of comments on my blog, lots of emails and even tweets.

I can't wait to talk to all the people that your post is introducing me to.

Thank you!


Congratulations on your amazon results. I have been recommending your book to anyone and everyone (in fact I even recommend it in my forthcoming book). Like your blog it goes far beyond the world of presentation to the core of what business can be. Thanks for sharing all your insights including this presentation on Tribes.

Congrats, Garr!
I knew your book would become this big after, actually before, reading the first chapter. Looking forward to more of your great and influential thoughts, and to presentations in Europe!
Cheers, sebi


Tondemonai! Your book is fabulous and has changed the way that I do my PPT decks forever (as well as the way I look at everyone else's). Kimi ni mo, domo arigato gozaimasu.
