Product Description

From Library Journal

Almost everyone gets nervous when it comes to public speaking, says Sarnoff (author of Speech Can Change Your Life ) in this new book. Most of us know this to be true and might hope that this book would provide a sure remedy. Unfortunately, it does not. Sarnoff has come up with some new variations and cute names for old techniques: preparation, rehearsal, breathing, attitude. She has a breezy writing style, but her constant name dropping about who she has helped is annoying. Nevertheless, her tips are tried and true ones and would undoubtedly help the frightened public speaker. Recommended only for libraries with plenty of money to spend. Rebecca Wondriska, Trinity Coll. Lib., Hartford, Ct.

Review

"Eminently readable ... about how to conquer the fear of communicating in public, how to control clammy hands and butterflies when making a speech, how to prepare speeches, how to look."

San Francisco Examiner

I just started graduate school and thought this book might help me overcome nervousness during the many presentations I'll have to do. This book offers very general tips for many different speaking situations (business, tv interview, etc.)and just a couple of techniques for controlling nervousness. If you're looking for a book that focuses more on controlling nerves and less on what color to wear or the perfect lighting for your face then you really should look elsewhere.

This is an excellent book for people who want to overcome their public speaking fears. Sarnoff teaches techniques that stop the nervousness that overcomes us before our presentations. Her book is also easy to read.

Perhaps my fear is a little too severe for this tape, but I did not find it at all useful. I was looking for a way to mitigate my physical symptoms and the author's suggestions/tips did not help in any way.

Not for my nerves. Jan. 31 2014
By tabularasaus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Another user summed up my thoughts on this book. Perhaps it is a little outdated. The stories are worth the three stars. I was just hoping for a miracle I guess. Maybe an abundance of techniques to calm the nerves? There are a couple of techniques. An illustration would have been semi-helpful.
Technique Works for Me Sept. 10 2013
By Tournament Golfer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The techniques used in this book work for me. I use them on the first tee in golf tournaments, when I am the most nervous, and I settle right down and am able to hit my best shot. I also use the technique in speaking in front of groups. I bought the book because my voice cracked embarassingly (both for me and the audience) when I gave presentations. This book really helps.
