           In They Snooze, You Lose: The Educators Guide to Successful Presentations by Lynell Burmark, readers will find tips on how to spruce up a boring Power Point presentation. Although the book is meant for educators, I think this title will come in handy for anyone looking for tips on how to make a more interesting and engaging presentations.
          Each chapter is full of activities that challenge presenters to put recommended tips to use. The book covers various examples like colorful and vivid images, entertaining music and sound bites as well as eye catching, attention grabbing text.
          The book comes with a companion CD with Power Point plug-ins, music and other tools. I found the book to be useful in my power presentations, but didn’t find anything above and beyond of the typical Power Point presentation guide.
