Book of the month!

A certain situation has made itself known to me this week: the epidemic of bad powerpoint presentations (chronic monopresentation). This is a very serious issue that affects hundreds of thousands of people, sometimes even as young as 13 years old.

Chronic monopresentation is characterized by slides overfilled with nothing but text, lack of white space, and monotonous verbal explanations cloned from the screen. If supervisors or companies push for the so-called "professional" look, it may become contagious. People with less confidence in informality or their ability to tell a story and connect with the audience may be more prone to chronic monopresentation.

If you or someone you know is suffering from these or other symptoms, talk to your doctor about a treatment that's right for you. Leave your data worries behind you.

*Presentation Zen is not for everyone. Talk to your doctor before taking this or any medication. Side effects include increased sales or connections, very good impressions of you and a focused product or messsage. This medication should not be used with transition effects in powerpoint or keynote. For more information, visit
