an interesting book from which we can glean many valuable ideas and suggestions. -- The Leadership and Organization Development Journal, April 2004
“… an interesting book from which we can glean many valuable ideas and suggestions.” (The Leadership and Organization Development Journal, April 2004)
"For those remarkable leaders who have the capacity to inspire, communications is less of a rote skill and more of a life practice in creating meaning. Leading Out Loud encourages us to plumb the depths of our own motivations in order to communicate change with the power that only authenticity engenders."
— Randy Komisar, virtual CEO, adjunct faculty, Stanford University, author, The Monk and the Riddle
"This is a powerful, simple, and essential tool for any leader who hopes to move and inspire others. Keep it on your desk."
— Patrick Lencioni, author, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team
"It is the leader's personal engagement that will inspire commitment and action. In this world of cynicism, the lessons Terry teaches are as timely as they are timeless."
— from the Foreword by David Pottruck
"This book will make you laugh, cry, and squirm. It will inspire you and it may even scare you. Implementing Terry's advice may require far more courage and discipline than anything else you do as a leader, but if you want to know and do something for yourself that will enrich your character and engage your spirit, then read and use the ideas in Leading Out Loud."
— Jim Kouzes, coauthor, The Leadership Challenge, chairman emeritus of the Tom Peters Company
"Pearce has written a gem. Leading Out Loud is a superb, enjoyable and practical road map on how we can become effective inspirers of change. Read it and act on it!"
— Costas Markides, Robert Bauman Professor of Strategic Leadership, London Business School
"Leading Out Loud will become an oft-turned-to handbook when stress is high and the outcome of particular communication is critical."
— Mel Bergstein, founder and CEO, Diamond Cluster
"Terry Pearce reminds us of the engaging storyteller, or the favorite college teacher. But that's just the point. He teaches us to discard the rhetoric of many public communications, replacing it with something far more powerful: the simple and genuine human voice. Leading Out Loud's teachings will change its readers as well as those they lead."
— John Hammergren, chairman and CEO, McKesson Corporation
"Drawing from a wealth of personal experience and the perspective of his unique skybox on leadership practices and effective leaders, Terry Pearce gives an authentic voice to the critical role of leaders in realizing change. This book is like a GPS system for leaders. It points the way, giving clear and practical advice on how to achieve results through clear and deep communication."
— Jim Hornthal, founder, Preview Travel, Lester Fellow for Entrepreneurship, University of California, Berkeley

Pearce gives out good anecdotes on different aspects of authentic communication to make his point. The book is well structured and includes a communication model that can be used to prepare for an important speech.
I have used the book as a reference in one of my business school classes and I can say it has been quite useful in connecting with audience and creating impact.
Pearce poses the questions that help us do the thought provoking work necessary to develop and refine our personal perspectives, communications and actions. I approached this book as someone interested in leadership and finished it with insights into all aspects of myself - business person, spouse, child, and friend.
Throughout the book, Pearce offers rich examples (from world renowned public figures to students preparing themselves to enter adulthood) that illustrate the struggles we all face with being authentic. The messages in this book will help anyone who has a passion to make things happen.
Fittingly Pearce doesn't speak from stage left. He is unafraid to use his own life, both its successes and struggles to illustrate and affirm his perspective.
We can hear you fine Mr. Pearce.
That's not to say the author doesn't have some good points, but getting through the book was a chore.
