Product Description

Public speaking is something that many people struggle with and yet these days not only do lots of people want to be able to speak better in front of an audience, often their careers depend on it. In Speak easy, Fortune magazine's ''Turnaround Champ'' Barry Gibbons, draws on his vast experience of speaking in public to help you make your dread of delivering speeches a thing of the past. Who knows, you might even start to enjoy it! Barry is the first one to admit that he's made a mistake or two along the way but these have helped him develop some brilliant ideas to avoid falling into the same trap twice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too Dec 12 2007
Format:Paperback
Mention the words "public speaking" to any number of teenagers, and what you're likely to see is blind panic. When you become an adult, public speaking doesn't often get any easier. With SPEAK EASY at your side, though, the difficulty of speaking to a group of people can be lessened.

Although it's sometimes difficult to get over the fact that you'll have to stand up in front of a group of your peers and speak -- coherently, precisely, and as if you know what you're talking about, no less! -- there are tips and tricks that you can use to your advantage to make the event less terrifying. Barry Gibbons, the former chairman and CEO of Burger King, has had a lot of experience when it comes to public speaking, and he's put his knowledge into book form to use as a handy reference.

Filled with alternate ideas, exercises, and pointers to make public speaking less traumatic, this is a good guide for teens and adults who shudder at the very thought of becoming the object of attention during a speech. This is a book that is perfect for any speech class, drama or debate club, classroom library, or simply as a reference guide.

I did not particularly find this book interesting. The writing style is not friendly and it takes great effort to continue reading.
