Magic Speech Evaluation Experience

The Magic Speech Evaluation Experience is an informative and fascinating e-book written to help people learn how to give the best speech possible. Author Andrii Sedneiv is an experienced, passionate public speaker that regularly teaches students to give speeches that will stick in peoples' minds for years to come.

Sedneiv gives several valuable tips on how to prepare and deliver a speech properly. He believes the best way for people to learn how to give a great speech is to analyze the speeches others have given, identify the strengths and weaknesses in the speeches and use that knowledge to improve their own speeches. As a result, this book also includes several videos of speeches that readers are asked to analyze on their own. Sedneiv also gives his analysis of every speech and points out the things the speaker did right and the things they did wrong.

Throughout the book, Sedneiv emphasizes the message that a speech is always more powerful when stories and dialogue are weaved into the speech. He stresses the fact that talking to the audience rather than talking at them is the best way to connect and communicate with them. Through his own experiences and the experiences of others, Sedneiv makes any speech come alive and gives it an interactive element that always keeps audiences captivated.

Students of Sedneiv constantly ask him what they can do to improve their speeches and he tells them to prepare at home and practice their speech before giving it in public. He suggests practicing speeches in the mirror so the speaker can see the facial expressions and gestures they use during the delivery of their speech.

As I live in Kyiv I know quite a few great speakers and even less great evaluators. Thus, I was positively surprised to see a book written by Kievyan Andrii Sedniev. I feel proud to know that so highly-mastered book about an art of public speaking evaluation was written by my townsman.

In the book "Magic of speech evaluation" Andrii focuses on three major components of a good speech, which are storytelling, being sincere and being energetic about your talk. To illustrate his idea he provides evaluations for 15 speeches from Ted.com. Speeches are given by people of different ages with different social and cultural backgrounds. However, one thing is common for all of them: their speeches were successfully delivered and accepted by the audience.

During each evaluation Andrii provides a precise overview for both content and presentation of the speech. He analyzes posture, movements, gestures and other key elements of the speech. Andrii provides deep research into audience engagement in a talk. In every chapter he gives little hints to make speech memorable and succinct.

To strengthen the takeaway message of the book, Andrii applies many fundamental techniques. His book is full of examples written as stories that happened in his life. His evaluation is based not only on mentioning a number of strong and weak elements of each speech and speaker, but he provides the options for making each specific speech better. He repeats his major themes for evaluation to make a reader remember and apply them in his life.

Each speech evaluation can be read separately. A reader is given an ability to suspend his reading without losing anything, and, moreover, read a book from any speech evaluation chapter.

The nuances of special techniques of public speaking get covered in this book by looking at the style and body language of top speakers. I found the book a buffet of styles and communication techniques to choose from. There is something to be drawn from the numerous examples in this book for someone new or someone who wants to refine or add style to their current technique.

Videos within a book? Yes, and what a book. "Magic of Speech Evaluation: Gain World Class Public Speaking Experience By Evaluating Successful Speakers" is a great little EBook, giving excellent examples on public speaking. If you need help in this arena, speaking in front of others, this is the book for you. Andrii Sedniev has written a 'how to' for all types of speaking in front of the crowd. The videos will guide you in many areas of public speaking. Fifteen short speeches will have you returning to this EBook time and again. Effective techniques and applications used by many will certainly help you polish your speeches. An EBook to keep handy. A great find.

Andrii has done an excellent job in basing his work around 15 very different and thought provoking TED speeches. The repetitive nature of the evaluations builds both speech writing and evaluation skills in a very enjoyable atmosphere. Totally recommend this to anyone who wants to improve their ability to give speeches which connect with the audience.

I've read several books on public speaking, and none compare to this one. The techniques outlined in this book are easy to remember and very practical.

While some people make it look easy, public speaking is never as easy as it appears. I would say "practice makes perfect" but we all know that in the world of public presentations, it isn't that simple. Your ever-changing audience holds you to specific expectations, and sometimes those expectations create an anxiety that is very difficult to overcome.

If that describes you; you need this book.
