Self-improvement and success often occur together. But that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re the same thing.

Mark Manson in his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Everything in the book uses the same direct, conversational style that Mark uses for the book title, and that’s good because it’s all useful information, put across in as few words as possible.

Mark doesn’t mince words when he provides advice, but he does use examples, analogies, and stories–and there he uses more words to convince you further.

Effective communicators plan effectively, develop compelling messages and headlines, make it easy for their listeners to follow the narrative, and introduce a common enemy to build the drama.

Carmine Gallo in his book, The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs: How to Be Insanely Great in Front of Any Audience

The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs

I remember when Carmine sent this book to me. I read the entire book in two days! This was, and still is one of Carmine’s best books, and when you consider that this one is the best from a series of bestsellers, then that’s something stellar. Although Carmine based this book on a study of the great Steve Jobs, this book is for everyone who needs to communicate. And while Carmine does not go much into slide design, he has revealed many of Steve Jobs’ slide design tricks unintentionally: )

I interviewed Carmine when this book was released–read the interview here: An Interview with Carmine Gallo
