- A good starting point: Bullet Points Kill (Effective Communication) by Cliff Atkinson.
- Seth Godin’s free e-book, Really Bad PowerPoint (and how to avoid it). (PDF)
- For the presentation-obsessed, Presentation Zen explores every angle of giving presentations. My favorite article is about the difference between presentation styles given by Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.
