Using charts in business presentations seems to be an easy task. Just put the data in Excel, which will give you good looking charts, which can then be copied and pasted in PowerPoint! So easy!
While the mechanics of using charts in presentations is as simple as mentioned earlier, using the most appropriate chart for communicating the right message requires good amount of thinking. The book titled, say it with charts, provides definitive advice on how to do it systematically. The author of this book, Mr. Gene Zelazny is the Director of Visual Communications at McKinsey & Company. That fact itself establishes the credibility of the book even before you start reading it. But it is only after reading the book; you find it as a real treasure.
