Geetesh contributes regularly to journals and Web sites, and has authored two other PowerPoint books. He’s also a Microsoft PowerPoint MVP (Most Valuable Professional) and a regular on Microsoft’s PowerPoint newsgroups. Geetesh’s own Web site at indezine.com has thousands of pages on PowerPoint usage. It also has a blog, an e-zine, product reviews, free templates and interviews.
