Geetesh: Can you share some thoughts about the new PowerPoint 2013 — and what is your favorite, new feature in this version?

PowerPoint 2013 Absolute Beginner's Guide

Patrice: There’s a lot to like about PowerPoint 2013. One of the great new features is that you can easily insert online media from sites such as YouTube, Flickr, Office.com, or your SkyDrive account. You can even search Bing for pictures licensed under Creative Commons. I also enjoy the new theme variants, which provide even more color and design options for each theme. The ability to create MP4 videos from your presentations is another welcome addition to PowerPoint 2013.

Geetesh: Tell us about your new book, PowerPoint 2013 Absolute Beginner’s Guide –- who is your typical reader?

Patrice: PowerPoint 2013 Absolute Beginner’s Guide is my sixth book on PowerPoint (Indezine publisher Geetesh Bajaj served as technical editor) and the first for the Absolute Beginner’s Guide series. Although this book is great for beginners, as the title states, it’s an ideal resource for intermediate PowerPoint users as well. The typical reader is anyone who wants to go beyond the basics and learn about all of PowerPoint 2013’s many features. Because PowerPoint seems like such a simple, intuitive program, many users rarely scratch the surface of what you can do with it. I’ve received emails from readers of the book who were surprised at all the other things you can do with PowerPoint beyond creating a basic presentation — such as creating videos, web graphics, eLearning programs, and more.
