I loved listening to this book on audible.  What I enjoyed most was being exposed to many great TED talks that I haven't seen yet.  I can't wait to carve out a viewing session to check them all out.  Who has the popcorn?

The best advice in the book?  Favor pictures over text, secret number 9, is my pick.  So many times I have been overwhelmed by the amount of text on a PowerPoint presentation.  You totally tune out the presenter to try and feverishly read all of the text before they flip to the next slide.  Jeffrey Gitomer said it best at a seminar I attended of his; "SLIDES ARE FREE" use as many as you like.
