The word is that people fear public speaking more than they fear dying, so this book is for any of those people. These tips help get anyone ready to not only get over their fear of speaking, but to command audiences. There are excellent tips for giving a presentation and using PowerPoint. Being able to master these two can give anyone a one-two knock out punch for public speaking.

If you have doubts about doing a successful speech or even for giving a presentation whether for class, work, or some event I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND YOUR FEELINGS. I have read this book in its entirety several times over and over, it is an absolutely FABULOUS little guide thats EXTREMELY HELPFUL. It contains chapters on building an outline for persuasive or even informational presentations, has hints on combating anxiety, and sample outlines to help you on your way. I used it for school having to conduct an informative speech on communication apprehension and then for my senior capstone presentation to an audience of professionals, in both instances I got an 'A'. I LOVE THIS BOOK, TRUST ME YOU WILL TO!

To be honest, I was very intimidated with the size of the book. My impression of this book was "what can this book cover on public speaking?" But I was wrong.
It is the first time for me to take up public speaking and having this book was a requirement. Upon reading it, it filled me with great knowledge on public speaking.
Concise, brief, and an absolute fun to read! Sometimes, I forgot it's actually a textbook.

My book came brandnew in the packaging with not a mark on it. It came on time, early even I believe which was nice because the book is for a college class and it was nice to not have to stress over it getting here. I feel very confident ordering from this seller again. I was pleased in absolutely every way. Thank you

Took a speech class and this was the textbook. The teacher said she used this book becuase it was a great book and great for a reference down the road, plus it was cheap! I can respect an instructor like that. This book is great and I am keeping this one for reference down the road.

This book gave me the confidence I needed to become a better speaker. Prior to purchasing the book, I had one national speaking engagement. After reading this book, I made the decision to join a 'professional speaking' club. I'd like to thank the authors of the text.
