HASH(0xa618fd2c) out of 5 stars Essential book March 26 2008
By Book Worm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
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.

HASH(0xa6192594) 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!
HASH(0xa6192540) out of 5 stars Excellent books for public speaking beginners! Oct. 30 2012
By Tangled. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
To be honest, I was very intimidated with the size of the book. My impression of this book was "what can this book cover on public speaking?" But I was wrong.
It is the first time for me to take up public speaking and having this book was a requirement. Upon reading it, it filled me with great knowledge on public speaking.
Concise, brief, and an absolute fun to read! Sometimes, I forgot it's actually a textbook.
