Resonate is a beautiful book packed with photographs, drawings, graphs, charts, diagrams, and even poetry, making it not only a truly enjoyable reading experience, but a book emblematic of the author's message that storytelling is an essential component to the success of a presentation.
Now the magic of Resonate is available in a Multi-Touch format that brings this beautiful book to life on your iPad. And it is the first interactive business book built in Apple’s iBooks Author.
Here is a little taste of what this iBook can do:
In an increasingly cacophonous world, visual presentations can cut through the noise. Resonate steps you through the Sparklines or "the story flow of several speeches in the interactive sparkline widget," introduces you to Nancy Duarte and the many behind the scenes stories she includes to support and illuminate the lessons, and provides you with the ability to "take notes and build your next presentation as you move through the book" via a Note Card feature. Chapter review test questions make remembering key ideas easy. Gorgeous imagery and provocative quotes keep the information lively.
The stories you create with the help of Resonante can help change your business, and even change the world, because stories put ideas into common language and ignite the imagination. Start by downloading Resonate to your iPad. Not only will you be in awe of the product before you and at your finger tips, you'll learn that presentations don't have to be boring, your great idea doesn't have to die before it sees the light of day, and your audience won't be texting surreptitiously under the conference room table while you present.
We got a note last week from a reader who was a little upset by a new product that Harvard Business Publishing recently put out.
Titled "10 Must-Read Articles from HBR", the electronic-only download highlights many of the same authors (and seminal ideas) as we did in The 100 Best. You'll find Drucker, Christensen, Goleman, Kotter among others with the Harvard Business Review article (ie condensed versions) of The Effective Executive, Innovator's Dilemma, Emotional Intelligence, Leading Change and so on.
We've been talking about how to help people, how to focus on what's positive and helpful in the current state of our world, rather than grumbling over the things that are both out of our control and truly uncertain. One of the ways we can do that is by starting a conversation that starts at a personal level. .

In another installment from the annual review of business books we produced last year, we have an article from friend and former president of the company, Todd Sattersten. In it, he discusses the meta-themes in business thought that he and Jack uncovered as they spent 18 months compiling, reading, choosing and writing The 100 Best Business Books of All Time.
The Five Universal Themes in Business BY TODD SATTERSTEN
What happens when you spend 18 months reading the best in business literature?
