5.0 out of 5 stars Essential book March 26 2008
By Book Worm - Published on Amazon.com
The word is that people fear public speaking more than they fear dying, so this book is for any of those people. These tips help get anyone ready to not only get over their fear of speaking, but to command audiences. There are excellent tips for giving a presentation and using PowerPoint. Being able to master these two can give anyone a one-two knock out punch for public speaking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Communication Apprehension NO MORE May 14 2010
By Sergeant O - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
If you have doubts about doing a successful speech or even for giving a presentation whether for class, work, or some event I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND YOUR FEELINGS. I have read this book in its entirety several times over and over, it is an absolutely FABULOUS little guide thats EXTREMELY HELPFUL. It contains chapters on building an outline for persuasive or even informational presentations, has hints on combating anxiety, and sample outlines to help you on your way. I used it for school having to conduct an informative speech on communication apprehension and then for my senior capstone presentation to an audience of professionals, in both instances I got an 'A'. I LOVE THIS BOOK, TRUST ME YOU WILL TO!
3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay. Helpful information but lacking cohesive organization. May 29 2014

Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
There is helpful information in this book regarding public speaking. However, it's not organized well so it can be difficult to find specific information.
