More About the Author
Achim has been featured on 60 Minutes, NPR, Fox News, and in The Miami Herald. He has received a PEN Syndicated Fiction Award for his writing, and his work for the Shimon Peres Centre for Peace was captured in the award-winning documentary "The Last Enemy."
Achim has a checkered past. That is one of his finer assets.
It includes training performers at The Actors Institute in Manhattan, spending a decade on the faculty of New York University, leading transformational AIDS Mastery retreats in church basements and community centers throughout North America, and disappearing to the island of Tobago for a year. In Tobago Achim windsurfed everyday and explored the art of doing nothing.

Each chapter challenges the speaker to engage in activities that often have a theatrical twist to them - which is one of the elements that allows a speaker to be, not only informative, but entertaining and fun to listen to. He focuses on activities that seriously helped me polish my technique. I made it a point to apply 3 of the techniques shared by Nowak - within a week of having finished the book - at a very important Keynote engagement. The results were simply spectacular for my audience, and I walked away with a stronger sense of security about why I do this for a living.
This book is A MUST for anyone who, for any given reason, has to stand in front of any group, for any length of time and communicate an important message. Managers, sales staff, trainers, speakers, CEOs should all read this book.
Nowak has written a thoughtfully organized, clear and helpful book. The many examples given from Nowak's own experiences have made this a concrete and personal book. These characteristics are what have made it so useful, readable and valuable to me.
