If you are reading this blog post, then you are one of those people. The ones that are continuously striving to improve their presentation skills. With this blog post, we want to give you a quick hint how you can do that in 2016 by showing you which are the books that you should buy in 2016. Most of them will be available for purchase sometime in the middle of February and you can either pre-order them now or just bookmark this blog post and set a reminder on your phone to remind you for checking those after a few weeks. Without further a due, here are the presentation books that you should buy in 2016:

  1. TED Talks: The official TED Guide to Public Speaking by Chris Anderson – do we need to explain what TED is? I don’t think so. So do we need to explain or try to convince you that this book will be a worthy investment? Yeap, I don’t think so.TED_Public_Speaking_Guide
  2. The Storyteller’s Secret by Carmine Gallo – I am going to buy this book not because of anything else, but because the previous book of Carmine Gallo – Talk Like TED was just plain and simple phenomenal. Thus, I cannot recommend anything else, but to just buy both of them if you by any chance missed the previous one.

3. Illuminate by Nancy Duarte and Patti Sanchez – Huge fan of Nancy Duarte as she is one of the people that started the whole movement of Presentation Design and it’s importance. I am completely sure that this book will be something special because she has such a rich experience as a storyteller and leader that I would definitely trust her on the subjects of how to change people and how to make them believe in you.Illuminate_Book

4. Lawyers, Liars and The Art Of Storytelling – New author for me here, but if you just quickly Google his name you will see why I am going to risk and give “this guy” a shot! + Storytelling is one of the most crucial things for making a great presentation, right? 🙂
