As you no doubt have noticed if you’ve ever sat through a typical PowerPoint presentation, people don’t pay attention to boring things. You’ve got seconds to grab someone’s attention and only 10 minutes to keep it. At 9 minutes and 59 seconds, something must be done to regain attention and restart the clock–something emotional and relevant. Also, the brain needs a break. That’s why I use stories in this book to make many of my points.

John Medina in his book, Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School

Brain Rules

The book is absolutely awesome. Do make sure you get a copy and read it!
