From the Back Cover
A powerful guide for every woman looking to find—or amplify—her voice
Most books about public speaking don’t tell you what to do when you open your mouth and nothing comes out. And they don’t tell you how to get over the performance anxiety that most people naturally have. They don’t tell you what to do in moments when you, as a woman, are made to feel small. They don’t tell you how to own the room. This book does.
From the way Michelle Obama projects “happy high status” and the power of J. K. Rowling’s understated speaking style to Virginia Woolf’s leisurely pacing and Oprah Winfrey’s mastery of inner conviction, what is it that our heroines do to make people sit up and listen—really listen—to their every word? And how can you achieve that in your own life? This book will show you how.
