|New from||Used from|
"If you suffer from the fear of public speaking, you will find hope and encouragement in Shaking Behind the Microphone, Overcoming the Fear of Public Speaking." Dan Nainan, professional comedian, and author of The Best Book on How to Become a Full-Time Stand-up Comedian
Shaking Behind the Microphone is a gift to every scaredy-cat speaker on the planet. Jill Vanderwood will hit a nerve with this book. Actually, it will calm the nerves of those who need it most! Jan Fox, Emmy Award winning news anchor, founder of Fox Talks and author of Get Yourself on TV and What to Do When You Get There
From the Author
I have always felt that a person can accomplish anything, if they have a strong desire for change. On the other hand, if you are satisfied with your life the way it is, and don't have the desire to change, then perhaps this book is not for you. I wish the reader all the success in the world and hope that you will soar in the public speaking arena. JAV

There are six sections in the book: Fear has Held Me Back, Speaking For A Living, Celebrities Overcoming Stage Fright, Public Speaking Experts, When Kids Learn Early and Non Traditional Treatments For Fear Of Public Speaking. Each section contains three to six essays/stories by real people, such as authors, comedians, bloggers, pianist, actors/performers and even speaking coaches.
Its nice to read a book on public speaking that isn't written by a PHD that never had a problem with speaking in public. I can relate to the situations each writer has went through and each one gives great advice on overcoming your fear of speaking in public. Overall, I enjoyed reading the book and I recommend it to anyone in any field that has a fear of speaking in front of crowds.
Shaking Behind the Microphone, Overcoming the Fear of Public Speaking shares her story along with others who feared public speaking. This wonderful book not only gives you insights, but helps you overcome your fears.
I start my first public speaking class in May and I tell you, I don't think I would have been able to get through it without Jill's book. If you struggle with glossophobia pick up a copy of Shaking Behind the Microphone, Overcoming the Fear of Public Speaking.
There are some lovely stories and really useful tips in this book - the kind of specific, tangible tips that you can actually try the very next time you speak. Great little handbook to help you stop shaking and stand proud and tall when you speak.
