The author of DYNAMIC PRESENTATION SKILLS FOR THE BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL offers a short audio course on giving public talks and seminars. It's a comprehensive lesson on managing every part of the presentation process, from investigating audience needs and meeting-room layout to having backup equipment and polished techniques for handling difficult people. The amount of detail Laskowski recommends might seem laborious coming from anyone else, but here it sounds thoughtful and welcome. His passion is thoroughly enhanced by Peter McHugh's smooth interpretation of his ideas. This is one of the best audio lessons on public presentations available.

I would say that '10 Days to More Confident Public Speaking' by Lenny Laskowski when combined with an another title - 'Persuasion: The Art of Influencing People' by James Borg - can be all professional literature you would really need in order to make yourself a better speaker, presenter and communicator.
The only reason that I didn't give the fifth star is a pretty poor quality of its paper. Any book is a physical product as well, isn't it?
The first example I can think of was the section on voice mail, not only how to record your own voice mail message - content, pace & voice, but also how to leave a message so that your call is returned. It is working for me!
While getting more compliments on my limited speaking engagements is important, I am so much more at ease preparing for them. My 8 year old daughter has told me I'm not as "cranky" the day before I speak. That makes it all worth while, compliments, feeling better before and after speaking, and most important harmony in family life.
I can not say this book is a panacea for all public speaking concerns, it has been a catalyst for me.
My favorite part of the book is the section on overcoming speaking anxiety. It described me and how I feel when I speak. This section contains lots of background information on speaking anxiety and the author's top ten tips for overcoming it.
I also enjoyed reading his top ten influential and memorable speeches. The book included excerpts from each speech which provided me both a quick history lesson and a reminder of how powerful a speech can be.
I recommend this book for anyone who is interested in public speaking whether you are a beginner or an experienced speaker
The three areas that I appreciated the most were: * the Internet sites given, * the Top Ten most influential and memorable speeches in history and * the Expect the Unexpected chapter.
The style of writing that the author uses makes you feel that you are there with him as he explains the situation. He has truly made this a book that you can learn from and put into action.
This will be a great resource for me to return to again and again.
It'a great gift to give as well.
