Microsoft PowerPoint is dismissed as a useful motivational tool by many who have had to endure dull presentations at work or school. But what if you were shown how to enliven these presentations with images, videos and sound, and then broadcast your show on the web? Would that make you sit up and take more notice of what this powerful software has to offer? And it’s not for use just in the workplace or at college, either. PowerPoint can be used effectively in the home, from creating a household budget to making an exciting slide show of your family holiday. In this book Chris Smith, an experienced technology writer, has thrown open the door to PowerPoint, and in clear, jargon-free language, explains how to set up, improve on and share a variety of presentations.

If you want the skills to build a dynamic presentation that will engage your audience from the outset, then this book is for you. It’s packed with advice and illustrations, as well as step-by-step guides on everything from adding text to your first slide to creating a custom photo album.
