Editorial Reviews


A Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly Bestseller!

"An indispensable guide for introverts and extroverts alike who want to shine when performing in public." - Inc. Magazine 

Steal the Show surprised me. It might be the most unique and practical book written on the topic of public speaking and performance in everyday life. And it's about so much more than just public speaking. You'll learn how to express yourself authentically, be more creative and increase your confidence in all aspects of life." --Howard Behar, former president, Starbucks Coffee

"Speaking in public is not just an art, it's a craft that can be learned and improved upon in order to change the treasures that can be mined.  On that account, Port's latest book, steals the show." - Peter Guber, CEO, Mandalay Entertainment & #1 NYT bestselling author, TELL TO WIN

“If anyone knows how to steal the show, it’s Michael Port. In this tour de force, he shares his secret method on how anyone, even the most inexperienced, can wow an audience. Jeff Goins, Best-selling author of The Art of Work

“It takes decades of coaching and practice to become a truly fascinating speaker. But it turns out, there’s a shortcut: you can apply Michael Port's principles to immediately stand out and steal the show." --Sally Hogshead, Hall of Fame Speaker and NY Times Bestselling author of How the World Sees You 

“An engaging book on how to dazzle audiences. Michael Port shares effective techniques for rehearsing and performing.” --Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take

From the Inside Flap

Your day is full of moments when you must persuade, inform, and motivate others effectively. Each of those moments requires you to play a role, to heighten the impact of your words, and to manage your emotions and nerves—if you want to steal the show, that is.

Every interaction is a performance, whether you’re speaking up in a meeting, pitching a client, or walking into a job interview.

In Steal the Show,New York Times best-selling author Michael Port draws on decades of experience as a professional actor on shows like Sex and the City and as a popular keynote speaker on the biggest stages, including Lincoln Center, to show you how to make the most of every presentation and interaction.

You’ll learn how the methods of top actors will help you connect with, inspire, and persuade any audience. You’ll discover the key strategies for commanding an audience’s attention, developing a clear focus for every performance, engaging your listeners, and delivering your message with maximum impact.
