The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations

On Aug 17, 2012 Gabriel Svennerberg wrote: Nice book, but doesn't live up to the hype
I think this is an OK book, which obviously a lot of work went in to creating. If you're a non-designer you will probably find useful information that will make your slides better. But if you're like me and have some experience in design and creating slides, you will find it very basic. That said you might still enjoy the design of the book and all the lovely examples in it.

JavaScript Web Applications is not a book for beginners. In fact, you need to have been doing a fair share of JavaScript development to benefit from it. But if you do, It’s indispensable!
