5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book Feb. 4 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was asked to speak to out local church group recently. With little to no public speaking experience, I went out and got this book rather than decline to speak (a thought that had crossed my mind)
My presentation went over in a big way. It was very successful. The tips and advice really worked. In fact, they worked so well that I have since joined toastmasters and have bought other books on public speaking.
From zero to above average public speaker. Thank you Mr. Carnegie!

I have been a Toastmaster for several years. This book pulled my experiences together, and showed me how to make better use of preparation and presentation techniques. Carnegie addresses the whole person, and radiates an interest in people and their goals.
Two of the more valuable approaches of the book were its focus on the gradual development of a speech through the use of constant reflection, and its instruction for using imagery to recall the points of a speech when you are actually out on the floor.

Another strong point of the book is its use of examples, both from historical and comtemporary (for the author) sources. The examples not only strengthen the interest of the reader, but augment and reinforce the points Carnegie is emphasizing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic Aug. 27 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Any Dale Carnegie book is worth a read. Yes the material is getting out-dated pretty fast, but the heart of the stories and anecdotes are what you take away from the book. This is a good read for those interested in improving their public speaking. And some of the recommended pronunciation of certain words at the end are a bit funny now too! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars How to become a more successful speaker Aug. 27 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As one could expect from a expert in human interaction, Dale Carnegie wrote a clear and concise book on public speaking. The book is very readable, with loads of "practical" examples, and with a fantastic summary after each chapter. I am sure the book can be of help to the novice as for the expert speaker alike. I gave the book 4 stars, because in my view only mind blowing books like Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People" deserve the maximum of 5 stars.
