About the Author

International speaker and author Gil Peretz is one of the world's leading authorities on communication, marketing and sales training. Gil's clients include organizations such as Microsoft, Motorola, Coca-Cola, IBM, Allergan, Merck, Teva, HP, Orange, Ericsson, Hilton, Comverse, Delta, and many more.

It is not rare to see Gil on stage delivering power-packed business ideas with the help of magic and props to make his audience move, sing, dance, and be active participants of Gil's unique business experience. In each of his seminars, he fosters a genuine aura of intimacy, and encourages the sense of an individual conversation with each participant. Feeling that they have taken part in a special intellectual and emotional experience, audience members leave venues with ideas for immediate implementation.

Peretz is author of the best-selling and revolutionary marketing novel Intimate Marketing.

Coauthor and NLP expert Nili Peretz has brought to this joint writing endeavor her experience of over a decade as Defense Counsel, as well as her expertise as a Master Practitioner NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming). This expertise is the result of hands-on experience, accumulated in helping people hone their "communication IQ," overcome stage fright, make instant connections in business and in life, and make significant changes in many areas of their lives through the use of NLP tools.

"Gil is a very enthusiastic, though provoking and engaging speaker. He links concepts to very relevant examples and brings life and color to his speeches and training."
Nick Rothwell, Commercial Director EAME, Allergan

"I am confident in recommending Gil as a keynote speaker. He is very knowledgeable, creative and entertaining! He has an easy, thought provoking style of delivery."
Ed Benson, The Ken Blanchard Companies

I am working in Corporate Finance and a lot of times, I have to do presentations for my co-workers and the clients. I always have to attend meetings and seminars that require knowledge sharing. So that means, a lot of talking, listening, and communicating. I am guilty using “unwords” such as umm, uhh, during my presentation. I participated at a workshop that Nili Peretz delivered about turning stage fright into energy to deliver messages with power, and that was one of the best experience you have had.

I am very impressed about what’s written on this book. Just like what the author said, this book was written out of love. I can indeed say that they shared all their knowledge and experience, and believed that everyone can learn from them. This book is for anyone who wants to have a successful career. I personally recommend this book to all those people who want to improve their speech and presentation in front of a huge, or small audience. If you want to be confident and would like to be a great presenter or speaker; or if you just want to have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, then this book is definitely a must read. This book offers a lot of great techniques that you can use at work, school, or anywhere public or private. It provided great examples so the reader would be able understand its message. This book will teach you the secrets of how to communicate effectively with your audience, without using “unwords.” It discuss about ways to not just talk and present but how to actually influence and persuade your audience. It will help you make your presentation exciting and interesting. It will help you understand why gestures, props, and understanding your audience play an important part of delivering your message.

We all speak, but how many of us really communicate? Are our messages being received by our audiences and making an impact, or (to borrow the cliché) are they simply going in one ear and out the other? Through their research of more than three hundred of President Barack Obama's speeches, as well as their expertise in the fields of Communication and Neuro-Linguistic Programming, co-authors Gil and Nili Peretz identify the techniques that this charismatic, globally-respected speaker uses himself, and show readers how they too can appropriate them in order to improve their own communication abilities.

As clearly outlined in the title, this book is about how the reader can learn the secrets of President Barack Obama to improve his or her ability to influence, persuade, and win over any audience - whether they be assembled in large auditoriums or at the dinner table. It is not a book about the president himself. But it does examine who he is as a person, and the story of his life, in order to explain how he has come to be where he is now: a man recognized as one of the most eloquent speakers of our era. Through actual examples of the speeches he has made since the 1990s, Gil and Nili Peretz lay out, in a simple and easy-to-understand way, how the reader can implement Obama's highly successful techniques.

The book is clearly divided into seven sections, each exploring a different set of techniques used by Barack Obama. But what sets this book apart from other bland "communication how-to's" is the co-authors' exploration of the way in which the mind works when it is the recipient of communication.

Let me tell in the outset that I'm biased.
I love any book which can give a decent amount of info on Speaking skills, Public speaking and Speech engineering. This book covers all three.

What do you gain from this book..

- Clarity on mastering hypnotic presentation

- The inside secrets of one of the outstanding speech constructors of our time Barrack Obama

- Brick by brick analysis with aptest examples (meticulous work)

- Human language deciphered to human language

Authors who have written about basic public speaking have indeed given us fantastic information. But Obama stands way ahead other public speakers.
Observing the speech once, I was baffled at the construct of a certain information presented by him. From then on, I have been in search of Obama's METHOD. Indeed lucky to find Obama's SECRET'S'

This book further is important as

- It is not something small. It is quite voluminous

- The writing is amazingly smooth. Reinforcing the points of discussion has got a fluidity. Appreciatable construction.

- Numerous examples of speeches

- Apart from other things, what caught me was the quoted books which directs us to further exploration

Readability 5/5
Understandability 5/5
Lay out, structure 5/5
Value for money 6/5
Usefulness 7/5

Highly recommendable

Definitely a must read for those who need to get their message out in a most efficient, succinct style. The authors using their expertise in the field of communication skills such as NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), have broken down and analyzed President Obama's speeches to create a simple but powerful instructive outline to construct the most effective messages.

As an old scholar of NLP, I am reminded of how the creators of NLP created their theories and system through
a careful analysis of the therapeutic teachings, strategies and methods of Milton H. Erickson, M.D. who is still considered by many as the "Wizard".

Read this book and you too can be a "Wizard".[[ASIN:1456506366 Obama's Secrets: How to Speak and Communicate with Power and a Little Magic
