Great for Speakers and Those with Stage Fright

This was an interesting listen about improving your public speaking skills. If you are someone who does a lot of public speaking, teaching, instruction, or if you are someone who is trying to get over their fear of speaking in front of groups of people, then this book is for you.
I do quite a bit of public speaking, and even I got some great advice and pointers from this short guide.
I will say that the first 15 minutes or so are a little dull, but all-in-all it was well worth the listen.

The narrator was very good as well. 5 stars.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Great Book! Lots of Tips and Tricks

This was a good little book.. I rated it 4 Stars because some of the information I have heard before and the author repeated himself a couple of times on different topics. The performance was great and the story fit the model of the book. I have given many, many presentations and sometimes I still get a little nervous. There were some things in this book that will help me overcome some of that nervousness... Overall a good listen.. Would recommend to anyone having to make presentations in front of crowds.
