The newest book in the Professional Engineering Communication series is now available in early release as an e-book. Slide Rules: Design, Build, and Archive Presentations in the Engineering and Technical Fields is a book meant to help practitioners hone their presentation skills and manage their slides well. Designed and written for engineers, technical specialists, and scientists of all levels–in businesses, universities, research units, military sectors, or other areas—the authors introduce best practices, provide full-color examples, and pull apart even the smallest issues that may haunt presenters. Professionals and students alike will benefit from this book because it provides specific avenues for improving and honing presentations in these specialized fields. Technical presentations are creatures of a different kind, and the specific needs for that work are duly addressed. Paperback will be released in early March, but you can preorder now using the link in this notice.
