Review

"Now then, S&MM SoundOff may not be the most likely venue for a book review, but indulge me for a moment: I’d like to draw your attention to the newest tome by Brian Tracy, entitled Speak to Win: How to Present with Power in Any Situation (AMACOM Books)....In addition to penning the “Management Strategies” column that appears in every issue of S&MM, Brian’s one of the top 10 brand names in the motivational speaking business (sharing company with a couple of fellas named Covey, Robbins and Chopra). So needless to say, when the guy pens a text on giving killer presentations, you ignore it at your own peril....Whether Brian’s dispensing advice on mnemonic strategies, speech cadence, body language or even the proper climate control for your meeting room, you’ll find plenty of practical information here. "

I'm a longtime Brian Tracy fan, because applying his knowledge has helped me be successful. This latest book is, without a doubt, the single most valuable public speaking book I've read to date (and I've read virtually every one published - I also recommend Lilly Walter's works).

I've been a professional speaker for over 20 years, and this is one book that I learned a lot of new tactics from, and wish I'd been able to see earlier in my speaking career.

Here's what makes Brian's book such a winner:

- detailed audience analysis techniques: Brian reveals what information you absolutely Must know before presenting to an audience. And this goes far beyond what you'd typically think about asking for.. many subtleties here re audience dynamics that are, in retrospect, things I should've been asking meeting planners for earlier. This alone is well worth knowing.

- Brian's world-class insights into what makes for a successful, well-received speech (like the "Eight Parts of a Keynote Talk" revealed on page 98). He's the world's top speaker, in my opinion, so getting all his thoughts down on paper like this is priceless. I will profit from Brian's tactics (thanks, Brian!), as usual.

- He reveals the "Qualities of Top Speakers", sharing what he's seen separates the best from everyone else (see page 132, on "The Highest Paid Speaker" for example).

and much more.

What was a pleasant surprise was, I thought I'd read it all, seen it all and that there was very very little anyone could reveal to me about public speaking that I hadn't already done, seen on video, or read in a book.

I have recently gotten hooked on a number of Brian Tracy's writings. It is obvious that Tracy is a master of his art. His step-by-step approach to everything from extensive preparation of your talk, to the AV equipment (or sometimes lack thereof), to SPECIFIC EXAMPLES of how to work the audience such that they participate and work to make the experience a success is perfect. I am a better person and will be a better speaker as a result of reading this book. I have three large-group workshops next month, and am confident I will be better prepared and received by using the techniques outlined in this book. Well worth the read.

I'm not reviewing this with the ulterior motive of promoting my own books or self or products or to ingratiate myself with Mr. Tracy, or "you pat my back and I'll pat yours" or put my latest book title or web address in my moniker, so you don't have to take this one with a grain of salt (at least not as far as in those matters).

Mr. Tracy has written a very easy to read and well-organized book that explains to the reader various techniques for being a persuasive speaker. He discusses how to properly prepare for various types of speaking situations from small groups to large audiences, as well as body language, speech techniques and whatever else is needed to make a positive and persuasive impact on the listeners.

It is a short book with fairly large type. There are no wasted words and no fluff inserted to make the book thicker. He gets right to the point, uses appropriate examples, and to me it was obvious that he knows what he is talking about.

If one is willing to read the book and digest it, then practice what Mr. Tracy preaches and keep doing so over and over, I believe he or she will be successful. I just got the book recently and much of what is written are things I already know or are common sense but the good part is it is all in one place. And the trick is, it doesn't matter if one already knows it or it is common sense, one must apply it in real life.

I believe this book offers a very high value per page and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their speaking skills.

My father used to tell me, "Son. If you want to learn anything, learn from someone who has proven themselves by actually succeeding in what it is you want to learn."

Brian Tracy is one of the most listened to and finest speakers in the world. He draws large audiences and get's raving reviews. That is good enough for me.

And oh by the way, nobody gives more content than Tracy.

The great Nido Qubein, oneof the great masters of communication and an incredible speaker highly endorses this book. Need more be said??

Buyit and use it. It's a winner.

Brian seems to know how to zoom in on the nuts and bolts of mastering any task. This is no exception.This is one of the better if not the best and most direct method of mastering speaking. If you need more information on speaking, then don't speak, because you just don't get it. Tracy is a consumate professional and lives what he talks about. I highly reccommend this book and the associated audios that he offers in order to hone and perfect your speaking opportunities.
