Let’s just get this out of the way: Nancy Duarte is my hero. She is a member of my High Council of Jedi Knights because she models integrity, creativity, leadership and innovation in every day and every way. I adore her and drool over her work.
Resonate teaches “how to transform any presentation into an engaging journey, by leveraging techniques normally reserved for cinema and literature. You will discover how to understand your audience, create persuasive content, and elicit a groundswell response.”
Today, Resonate is released as the first business book built using Apple’s iBook Author.
When I saw a sneak peek version two days ago, the hair stood on the back of my neck and my heart started beating quickly.
I saw books in a whole new way — vibrant and alive on the screen, not just one-dimensional on a page. Any author knows the frustration of bringing ideas to life using only words. If you want to truly help and teach with your ideas, bringing audio, video and interactivity to books blasts things to a totally new dimension.
Like going from silent movies to talkies.
Or black and white television to color.
Or Pat Boone to John Legend.
