Sometimes I'll read a book in order to pick up a few pointers or get some quick tips, but this one quickly qualified itself as a full-fledged operating manual for effective public speaking. It really covers all of the bases and I found that the principles of communication conveyed applied well beyond addressing audiences. My presentations, whether to a single person or to a large group of people, have improved exponentially. I attribute a number of my recent sales closes directly to the principles taught in No Fear Speaking. I love the concise and ordered approach. Moreover, it is a rich,comprehensive "How To" approach, complete with tips, key factors and valuable exercises for building competence. The author shows real mastery over the subject and I'm glad he has shared it with this well conceived book!!
Very Impressive....... This book is a must read, no matter what your professional or personal background is. To have the confidence to get up in front of a small or large group and speak without feeling lost in the fear of it all, is just incredible. I am a personal chef and I also conduct cooking classes in front of small and large groups. Before reading Joe Yazbeck's book, I was very self-conscious of my speech and mannerisms. I am now so much more confident and natural in my approach in speaking to my clients in any setting, small or large. I urge anyone who may lack any sense of hesitance or self confidence to pick up this book. It will make a world of difference in your life. Joe Yazbeck certainly made a difference in my life.......

A friend introduced this book to me last week. I have been public speaking since age 8, when I was delivering bible themed talks on stage at my church. Since then I have been on stage in various capacities, either as the main speaker or assisting a speaker. I've had my share of wins on stage. Wins laced with nervousness and uncertainty. I could deliver material, but never had a sense of whether or not my audience benefitted from what I said. I've had mixed responses from people in the audience, along with moments of uneasiness, not sure what I was saying would evoke a heckling comment or jeer. No Fear-Speaking gave me certainty as to what I had been missing! This book gives clear, no-fluff direction on how to prepare for your next (or first) speaking engagement. I can honestly say I am very much looking forward to my next time on stage, knowing I have No Fear Speaking on my side. I know that I will enjoy it, and my audience will benefit from what I say.
This book is a perfect tool to use to create your speech, learn how to deliver on your promise to your audience, connect with the audience, avoid common mistakes and be seen as a professional speaker even if you haven't done much speaking. I have had the pleasure of working behind the scenes at many events with audiences from 10 - 1,000 - with 50 plus speakers. I have met and heard many high level industry leaders speak on a variety of topics and some are pleasing to listen to and some are not. This book would be perfect for anyone who is presenting to an audience - from a boardroom, to a TV show, to a small group or a large audience. I will refer to No Fear Speaking as I prepare for any public speaking event - what a great reminder of the essentials of a commanding speaker. No Fear Speaking is packed with tips and pointers including the forward by world renowned speaker Dan Clark. As a marketing consultant who reads a vast amount of information for my clients - I am easily distracted and "zone out" when the content is not direct and to the point - this book kept my attention from the first word to the end - thank you for not wasting words Joe. This book makes you feel confident delivering to any audience.
This book is a great read and a good reference guide for preparing and presenting before audiences. It takes you through all the usual steps for preparing a presentation but it doesn't stop there. Instead, the author teaches how to command attention of an audience. I especially appreciated the focus on a call to action, and the steps a speaker should take to successfully present such a call to action. It is a book that you will return to and study.
“No Fear Speaking” is a Public Speaking book that is packed with numerous useful tips and tools on how to become a polished speaker. However, what I personally enjoyed most about reading this book is how it guides you out of your shell to become a high-impact speaker. There are references contained in this book that makes it crystal clear; in order to become an effective speaker you must first get out of your head! This is what determines the difference between being an “Authentic” Speaker versus being a “Synthetic” speaker, which are expressions that Joe himself has coined.
Being ‘Present’ is one the most important aspects, as it relates to becoming an awesome speaker; hence the word ‘present’ is the main word in “Present"-ation! Your presence allows you to connect with your audience; which means that your audience is able to genuinely ‘feel’ you and although your audience may not remember every word of your presentation, they will definitely remember how your presentation made them feel.
I love the tone, the structure, the simplicity, and of course the “presentation” of this book. Great job Joe!!
