Publisher's Summary

In Speak with Power: Giving High-Performance Presentations for Profit and Results, expert communicator Michael Gelb teaches you how to overcome any hurdle by focusing on the brain's role in both giving and receiving presentations. In boardrooms, classrooms, and living rooms across the country, presentations are designed and delivered in a way that disregards the one tool needed to communicate ideas effectively: the human brain. Incorporating the natural creativity from the human brain will make each presentation you give exciting and memorable. The program emphasizes that within all of us lies the ability to do more than merely survive a presentation. On the contrary, speaking to a group can be an enjoyable, personal, and fulfilling experience! Speak with Power also dispels the myth that people are either inherently comfortable in front of a group or they are not. In fact, everyone is capable of learning how to give persuasive and entertaining presentations. In this essential program, you'll learn how to:


Program your brain for success through positive visualization.
Have fun while giving the very best of yourself to an audience.
Use the five-step PROPER approach to deliver an unforgettable presentation.
Articulate ideas effectively with body language.
Tackle the fear of public speaking in an honest and straightforward manner.
Master the powerful Mind Mapping technique - a revolutionary approach to preparing presentations.
And much, much more!

A great presentation can educate, encourage, motivate, and inspire its audience. More importantly, the ability to give a powerful, informative, and engaging presentation is within anyone's reach. Packed with Michael Gelb's time-tested methods, Speak with Power is an indispensable program that will help anyone deliver a powerful speech.

I love this book

Would you listen to Speak with Power again? Why?

I plan on listening to this book several times. There's a lot of good info packed in this book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Speak with Power?

I loved how he discusses using the environment to create powerful audience impacts.

What about Michael J. Gelb’s performance did you like?

I normally do not take the time to leave reviews but I had to for this book. I love the fact that he wrote and read the book demonstrating the principles he teaches. He literally made my light bulb turn on. I truly feel that Gelb can speak powerfully about such a subject because he obviously loves what he does.

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

No, I devoured this book in small bites over a period of days.

Any additional comments?

Great book for public speakers. Get it!

Great listen - beneficial

There were some fabulous points about giving presentations and power speaking in this audiobook. It was very comprehensive and the speaker was great and easy to listen to.
I would have rated it 5 stars if it ended after about 5 hours with a summary of the main points.
However, it went on for at least 90 minutes about leadership and didn't it was almost like another book. If I wanted to listen to leadership I'd just prefer to listen to an audiobook on that :)
