"Finally! Someone has incorporated the power of story into presentations!"
—Damon Lindelof, Co-creator of LOST
"To write a book about effective and inspiring communication is a challenge because it has to demonstrate what it advocates. Nancy Duarte has certainly done that. Compelling. Convincing. Utterly practical. This is a gem!"
—Patrick Lencioni, President, The Table Group Author, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team
"Few things excite me more than a great communicator—something I've wanted to be ever since I ran for president of the seventh grade. While I think I've come a long way on that journey, I never fully understood what it takes to be a world-class communicator until I read Nancy Duarte's Resonate. Read this book, absorb this book, practice what it preaches, and you'll be on your way to being a great communicator. Thanks, Nancy."
—Ken Blanchard, Co-author of The One Minute Manager, Recipient of Golden Gavel Award
