An Effective and Modern Guide for Any Scientific Field 13 août 2013
Par John P - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The 2nd edition of Alley's "The Craft of Scientific Presentations" is an important modernization of his original work. I was keen on getting this edition because the 1st Edition was written in 2002. Alley wrote about transparencies and slide carousels then and while these technologies are not entirely obsolete, the ubiquity of projected slides has pushed them to the sidelines. In this edition, Alley deliberately focused on the projected slide, courtesy of Microsoft PowerPoint or your favorite slideware. Although Alley's discussion of the pros, cons and appropriate use of older technologies in the 1st edition was greatly appreciated, he completely omitted it in the 2nd. I find this a wasted opportunity as the short discussion could have still been substantial material for the Appendix. Despite today's technology, carousels and transparencies still have some advantages over LCD projectors.

If the 1st Edition cautioned the reader on 10 Critical Errors, the 2nd Edition cautioned on 13. Notably, Alley dedicated 2 (new) Critical Errors to criticizing Microsoft PowerPoint and its role in perpetuating poor presentations as we know them today. Furthermore, he blasted PowerPoint's topic-subtopic default and advocated the assertion-evidence format. He defends his advocacy and strengthens his credibility by citing his work as a multimedia learning specialist--a task he did not do in the 1st edition. The 3rd (new) Critical Error is simply an older chapter broken down.

If it weren't for the 2 substantially new Critical Errors, the 2nd Edition would only have been a reorganization of the 1st. Although I have to say the 1st Edition felt more coherent, professional and organized. The outline of the 1st Edition was very clear while the 2nd Edition felt as if I was wandering through Alley's rants and stories. The 1st Edition seemed more professionally done.

Finally, the last point of Alley's modernization were his hat tips to the giants of modern day slide communication. He incorporated examples from TED and ideas from the Heath Brothers (Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die), Garr Reynolds (Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery (2nd Edition) (Voices That Matter)) and Nancy Duarte (slide:ology: The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations). He also advocated newer presentation styles such as the Pecha Kucha, evidence-assertion (in addition to the original assertion-evidence), and the Lessig Method.

Overall, Alley's book as an important and must-read guide for anyone in the scientific field. Professors, researchers and students will greatly benefit from Alley's work. The book also has the benefit of being short and concrete--a plus for the busy scientist.

What makes this book very important is that it is one of the few books centered on scientific presenting. Many of what are available right now are skewed towards presenting in business and to the general public. If ever there are, they are short discussions or a chapter at most. Scientific presentations have certain norms and nuances which Alley carefully takes into account.

Owners of the 1st Edition will appreciate the modernized update, especially if you find yourself constantly going back to refresh. If you are a scientist and are currently looking for your first presentation book to invest in, then look no further.

For maximum effect, supplement this book with Garr Reynolds and Nancy Duarte. Then you will never look at presentations the same way again. Ever.

Definitely worth reading! 9 décembre 2013

Over the past several years, Michael Alley has put a lot of time and effort into finding ways to improve upon PowerPoint's standard (title-and-bulleted-list) presentation format. This latest version builds upon that work, with many useful suggestions presented in an interesting, easily read format.

Assertion/Evidence = Targeted and Strategic Scientific Talks 6 juin 2014
Par Traci Nathans-Kelly - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Michael Alley and his team of researchers bring together experience, research, practical applications, and well-thought out perspectives that will help even the most challenged technical presenter improve performance. With verbal communication, specifically presentations, being the cornerstone of how cutting edge information is currently shared, it is imperative that technical communicators (scientists, engineers, analysts, technical professionals, and others in related fields) impact listeners with their critical messages. Alley's book will bring along even the most unwilling of practitioners.

With examples and stories all through, Alley's approach is a gentle prodding look at how technical work gets done and the gets communicated. He doesn't lecture the reader. He doesn't chide. He does, however, provide a collection of less-than-optimal practices that many technical people make when presenting. He addresses the mistakes, writes about how they are understandable, and then provides solid ways to work your way out of the mistakes.

Too many people believe that scientific and technical topics are dry...always dry...and have no way to redeem themselves. In truth, these are the very talks that can change the way that we interact with the world, the ways that we see the world, and the ways that we move through the world. Whether a speaker needs to address issues with o-ring degradation or the design for a new roller coaster, that talk can be compelling or be a failure. Michael Alley's techniques will help that speaker to succeed.

Alley's methodology is not theoretical. His methods, which I use and advise others to use, are at the heart of a movement in the technical fields to make communication practices as effective, efficient, and elegant as the designs and ideas they represent. Alley's ASSERTION/EVIDENCE model is still revolutionary to many organizations--yet it works and it changes the way that technical and scientific organizations do their work internally and spread their work externally. It would behoove any technical communicator (or the trainers/instructors of them) to pick up this book. It will change everything.

Great advice presented concisely 11 octobre 2014

This short book provides concise guidance on how to clarify presentations. The suggestions about structure (using short text to present the conclusion, then presenting evidence to support the conclusion) were particularly useful to me.

Solid advice 9 mai 2014
Par D. M. Lorenzetti - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The book focuses primarily on the "assertion-evidence" style of presenting scientific results. In a nutshell, an assertion-evidence slide provides a sentence-like statement at the top, followed by supporting photos, figures, equations, tables, etc. In contrast to the bullet-point oriented, topic/sub-topic style of most presentations, this approach has advantages both for the audience (e.g., harnesses multiple paths to learning) and for the speaker (e.g., focuses attention on the main points).

The book also contains a lot of supporting material, ranging from high-level structure, to delivery, to nitty-gritty details like font size. Along the way, it cites a lot of historical anecdotes, and shows real-life examples of both good and bad slides. It also briefly mentions a few other alternatives to the bullet-point style, and provides recommendations on when these techniques do and don't work.

I came to this book after the author, Michael Alley, presented some of these ideas at my Lab. He made a convincing case, and in the time since then, I've seen co-workers give presentations that the assertion-evidence approach clearly improved. If you've seen Alley speak, I would say the book is written a bit more stiffly than his on-stage delivery, and has more repetition, but I think these result from his desire to make each chapter stand on its own.

The contents are research-based, but presented (for the most part) non-dogmatically, with a clear sense that these are guidelines which can be violated as the need arises.
