Publisher's Summary

How would you like to:

Shed your primal fear of public speaking and be able to speak in front of anyone, anytime?
Get a restraining order against your internal critic?
Free yourself from the constant pressure of having to be "perfect"?
Build powerful, memorable messages and deliver them with confidence?
Listen to the best book ever written
Do all of the above (except the last thing) and maybe smile while you're at it?

If yes, you will definitely, most likely, maybe, sorta like this book. [The last sentence was put through a lie detector test - results inconclusive.]
The book takes you on a journey through the eyes of the author, Matt Kramer, a perfectionist who was once petrified of public speaking. You'll hear about his embarrassing speaking moments as well as the raw, internal thoughts that once crept into his mind time after time. Lastly, you'll know after listening to this book that there is hope for you - that public speaking is not just for the Tony Robbinses of the world. It's for anyone who dares to break through their self-imposed barriers. Matt tells you how he overcame his fear of public speaking and how you can, too.
Inside you'll find:

Eight methods to control nervousness while waiting your turn to speak
How to avoid forgetting what to say (Including one thing you should NEVER do)
Several bad jokes
How to construct a presentation from nothing but a blank slate
The secret to winning the war against your inner critic

Great Info Told by an Unenthusiastic Speaker

The tips were great! The person's expression while reading the book, not so much. I wish the author himself would have read it based on his last few seconds of thanks in the recording. He had refreshing energy in contrast with the person reading his book.
