Here’s a great update: It’s almost two years now since I posted Tell Your Story Well, on my main blog here at Bplans, recommending Nancy Duarte’s brilliant book Resonate. Nancy recently optimized that book for interactive multi-media use, and posted it entirely free. And that’s a real gift.

Resonate, by Nancy Duarte

I wrote in that post:

If you ever – ever – get up to speak to a group of people, and if you give a damn about what that means, to you and them, then you want to read this book.

And now, with this latest new innovative version, that’s even more true.

Take your browser to for a great book, free. And it’s also a glimpse of what some books, particularly books that link easily to video and images, will become in the future.

You don’t have to read it on your computer monitor or your laptop. Use the browser included with your iPad or Android tablet. Take it to that link, and you’ll access a really smooth tablet version.

Don’t ever talk to a group again without going through Nancy’s brilliant work on the critical functions of story telling in business.
