Introducing My New Book

For those of you who know me as the PowerPoint Ninja from this blog, you may be surprised (or disappointed) to learn that my recently published book isn’t about PowerPoint or business presentations.

Over time I will be adding more quotes to this post. Please send me any good PowerPoint quotes that you have so I can add them to this collection. Continue reading “A Humble Collection of PowerPoint Quotes”
