Eh... not what I was expecting.

This book was good, but not really what I was expecting. I can present in front of small groups, but have terrible public speaking anxiety. I'm now at the level where it will be a major limiting factor in my career advancement. The title made me think that this would be a book about public speaking, where in reality it was more of a business communications 101. There were definitely some interesting points, but I feel this book would be best for someone who is interested in improving their overall communication style or are early in their career.

Just not what I expected

The content is good. The delivery good Author is smart. I just thought I was going to learn more about communication styles and delivery and wasn't prepared for a sort of marketing 101 guide. It doesn't hurt to hear this information again. But not was I looked forward to

Great Tips for a Successful Life!

Lisa packs a lot of information into one audio book. Have a pen and paper handy and prepare to write down things you should have learned years ago! :-)

I think the most helpful chapter was about how to deal with difficult conversations.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I couldn't stop listening.

As if I have a personal Public Speaking Coach!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Lisa acts very personal in the book, making it feels like I have hired my personal coach.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Smart Talk?

She shares a lot of her experiences for us to learn. So the book is memorable through out.

What does Lisa B. Marshall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Lisa is the narrator and the author of the book, so she definitely knows what to emphasize.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

This book is great because it's like the condensed version of all the great public speaking tips she's given in her podcast and more.

Any additional comments?

I have been listening to her podcast since the beginning of her podcast career. She always always always provides great tips I couldn't have found out anywhere else. I have been one of her huge fans and always will be.

Common knowledge nothing new

Any additional comments?

This audio book is good for people who don't have much communication skills or knowledge and need a starting point. The information in it is all good but if you are looking some new techniques or new information this is not a good buy. A lot of obvious stuff in it, common knowledge, nothing new.
