Review

"Bestselling author and master communicator Charles Swindoll has been effectively speaking to others for over 50 years. Now, in his new book, SAYING IT WELL, he shares his secrets on how to talk so people will listen.
Filled with techniques, stories, and models that clearly explain the formulas for successful speaking, Swindoll teaches readers the foundational principles for how to communicate, from preparing for a speech, organizing thoughts and filtering out the superfluous to overcoming fears, grabbing the listener's attention, and knowing how and when to stop.
With humorous stories and inventive, practical tips, one of America's premier communicators shares decades of experience on how to speak with authority in every situation, persuade others to consider the reader's perspective, overcome the fear of public speaking, and love others more effectively with words. He also shares his personal story and journey to becoming a world-famous speaker."

Public speaking is considered to be most people's biggest fears. Have you ever considered if there might be a simple way to get over the fear? I know I used to fear public speaking and even now know that perhaps I could easily improve on what I am talking about in order to make me a more efficient and well-liked public speaker.

In the novel, Saying It Well by Charles Swindoll, he walks you through how he has become a confident, successful and capable communicator through his step-by-step process. By using these tools found within the cover of this book, you can:

1. Make a strong first impression.
2. Position yourself as an expert in your field.
3. Speak with confidence.
4. Motivate people to action.

And even more than this, you'll also learn, and apply, three vital insights that will make a world of difference when you stand and speak with others:

1. Know who you are.
2. Accept who you are.
3. Be who you are.

Whether you are giving a speech, making a presentation, conducting a meeting, or simply talking one-on-one, these tried and true communication techniques are guaranteed to help you organize your thoughts and deliver your message - with confidence, style and great success.

I received Saying It Well by Charles R. Swindoll compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest opinion and being a huge fan of the down home manner of Charles Swindoll's messages, I just knew I would benefit from the reading of this book. Charles uses his own experiences as a service man in the Marine Corps and feeling the calling of ministry on his life, to show how these principles has led him to become not only a successful pastor but also a businessman and well-respected author in his field.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Charles R. Swindoll, beloved pulpit and radio pastor who has shared his spiritual guidance on his "Insight for Living" program over the course of many years, has written a how-to book on public speaking. Swindoll, who has been ministering to people inside and outside of the church proper for over 50 years, offers readers an intimate timeline of his life and work. Readers will learn much about Swindoll's childhood, teen years, young adult life, and married years with Cynthia and their children. He quite transparently opens up about his failures, mistakes and doubts that helped develop him into the exemplary Christian leader he is today. In every way, this fine resource is a practical and inspirational primer on learning how to communicate effectively with others, no matter the audience.

One especially interesting fact about Swindoll is that he used to be a stutterer. He says that the last thing he ever planned on doing as an adult was being a minister. He recalls the agony of having to get in front of people during his teen years and working extremely hard (remember The King's Speech) to overcome his tendency to speak fluently (and with passion).

What Swindoll did intend was to marry his sweetheart and live happily ever after, but the war got in the way and he was shipped 7,000 miles away from home (and Cynthia). Today, he cites that pivotal time period as the one that drove him to make intense study of God's Word his priority, and there he began learning how to lead others to Christ. When he came back home, Swindoll felt the call to serve as a pastor, and once again his life's purpose was becoming more defined. He shares of his grueling years as a student at Dallas Theological Seminary and how he fully invested himself in preparing for service as a minister.
