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.

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.
