Book Description

“As a public speaking coach and professional speaker, I'm always looking to increase my knowledge by reading new books on the art of public speaking. I was thrilled to read Allan's book, ‘How to Avoid the Ten Biggest Public Speaking Mistakes’.

The book does a great job of covering ten mistakes which KILL your presentation. I cannot count the number of times I have seen presenters make these mistakes. Perhaps you've seen presenters who make these mistakes. Or perhaps YOU make these mistakes?

In any case, this is a short, handy, and practical guide contains tools, tips and techniques you can use immediately to avoid the mistakes most presenters make. What I like about the book is that Allan not only discusses what NOT to do, he also gives you tips on what you SHOULD do.

A valuable public speaking guide that belongs on every presenter's bookshelf! Avoid these 10 mistakes and you will be better than 99% of most presenters.”

Akash Karia

“This book is masterfully written. Seldom would you find insights on the what (mechanics); the how (process) and the mistakes to avoid in one resource. From beginning to end it never felt like I was reading a book,.... it truly felt like I was being coached. Allan and Allan are consummate professionals.”

Dr. Ray Charles
Speaker

In this book, you will discover the Ten Biggest Public Speaking Mistakes to Avoid and What to Do Instead. Study them. Put what you learn into practice. When you do, you will experience success delivering presentations.

“A speaker who speaks at one vocal rate, one tone of voice and one volume level is anathema to an audience.”

The above comes from a discussion of Mistake #7.

“Someone once asked a professional speaker, “Do you need to use humor in your presentations?” He responded, “No, not unless you want to get paid.”

Humor in presentations is like spices and herbs in a salad… humor can turn an ordinary presentation into an audience’s delight.

Humor can help you grab your audience's attention. It can make the end of your presentation more memorable. A humorous anecdote or story can help make your point stick.

Ten Strategies for Using Humor ….. “

The above comes from a discussion of Mistake #9.

Almost all people have a fear of public speaking to some degree. The fear of speaking is the number one fear, greater than the fear of death. As Jerry Seinfeld, the comedian, said, “Most people would rather be in the coffin than giving the eulogy.”

But this does not have to be you. No Sweat Speaking™ is dedicated to helping you overcome your fears and become effective, skilled and engaging speakers. Delivering a memorable presentation is not rocket science. You just need the right training, the right information, the right skill set and the right coaching.

For a small investment, Allan Kaufman and Allan Misch provide in this book and other books the information necessary for your public speaking success.

Learn what not to do and what techniques can make the difference between a successful presentation and a bomb. Learn where to go to practice in front of an audience and get feedback on your presentations. Learn how to get trained either in a group setting or one-on-one personal coaching.

The key to presentation success is to apply your learning. You must practice giving presentations in front of audiences. But practice without knowledge is foolish. You will just make the same mistakes over and over again.

In this book, you will discover the Ten Biggest Public Speaking Mistakes to avoid and what to do instead. Study them. Put what you learn into practice. When you do, you will experience success delivering presentations.

This book is like a mini-course in public speaking. The difference between a professional public speaker and an amateur is knowing what to do and what not to do. This book lays it all out for you.

Buy this book – your small investment will pay off over and over again.

Wow! What a great comprehensive small book on all of the basics of speaking. Whether you are a beginning speaker or a seasoned veteran, you will benefit from this overview. Being a great speaker is about consistency and remembering the basics and this book assures that you will do just that. Speakers never stop learning and preparing and this book will serve as an excellent reminder of what we need to do. I am grateful to both authors for caring enough to provide such valuable information to the readers. Thanks.
