"Stellar CVR 199x3002 Create Stellar Presentations with Coach Shel IsraelI decided to write Stellar Presentations, a small book for a niche market that I know and love. This is a book for tech entrepreneurs who need to present at conferences. I hope you find it useful."
To me, however, it is so much more. This book is conversation and personal, allowing the rest of us to have a taste of Shel as our personal business coach.
While the book gets into the nitty gritty of presenting your new tech start-up to venture capitalists, it's much more generally accessible than that. It offers tips that can be mapped to any sort of presentation you'll need to make on any subject because it addresses issues interesting to anyone who needs to do any sort of public speaking. For example, I believe I will stop winging it when I am up on stage. Shel has finally convinced me that practice does make perfect and even though I may well be a subject matter expert, I am not a public speaking expert, which is something needs to prepare for:
"I don't wish to overstate my point. You probably don't have time to practice 10,000 hours for your talk. Nor is the challenge before you quite as difficult as composing a Mozart masterpiece. But public speaking does require a lot of practice."

In addition to the stories and the insights drawn from those stories, the book includes advice on considering your audience and goals, structuring your speech, resolving common problems while giving a speech, and, importantly, having fun when giving a speech.
Shel's prose is always a pleasure to read, but perhaps it is his self-publishing effort that is showing, because the lack of good editing keeps this book from being perfect. It is still good though.
To all presenters, there is something in this short book for each one of you, do not miss it.
Last week, I attended Where 2.0 conference where my startup was selected as a startup showcase, I need to pitch many times to the visitors to my booth, do a video interview in front of camera and deliver a short key notes to hundreds people on stage, with what I learned from the book, and what I practiced in the past events, I feel I did well, and my startup become one of the 3 winners. I would like to say thanks to Shel and his awesome book, it is really helpful!
