This book is a short, concise reference that is an essential part of any professional's library to be able to pull off the shelf and use not only while presenting at work, as the title suggests, but being able to present in a variety of social situations as well. As a grad student, this book was extremely beneficial in helping me understand the rationale of one of the public speaking classes I had to take. It made me realize that public speaking is not an activity that should be dreaded, but an opportunity to express your voice and experiences in a creative, meaningful, and lasting way. A MUST HAVE in your professional library!!!
Thanks to this book, I'll be competing in my university's Oral Advocacy Showcase. Definitely worth the buy if you want to improve your public speaking and presentation skills.
The chapters are organized in three categories: "How you say it" (both verbal and non-verbal communications that either support or take the attention away from your message), "What you say" (the organization of your speeches) and "Where you say it" (potential events where you'll have to deliver a speech, what the specifics are and what to do).
The area covered is quite large, the chapters are easy to read and the advice is very practical: buy it and use it, you'll see the difference in no time !
