This book is great for anyone who speaks publicly regardless of your experience or comfort level. I loved learning the psychology behind the fear of public speaking and found it intriguing.
I loved this book so much I bought the audiobook on iTunes and went back and forth until I was done. Highly recommend this book!

Just Reading it Gave Me More Confidence!Reviewed in the United States on March 7, 2016
I never expected a public speaking book to be funny, but this one is (besides being really helpful). I've read two other public speaking books (one in college) and the other I found online. Scared Speechless was WAY better than either one. First, this book was entertaining! The authors make jokes which holds your interest. Second, the book describes the psychology behind our fear of public speaking - which made a lot of sense and made me look at public speaking in a whole new way (a more positive one!). Finally, the authors give you practical guidelines on writing a speech (write to be "said" not to be "read" is awesome advice) and delivering it. This might sound crazy, but I'm actually looking forward to giving a speech this summer at my class reunion! Just reading it gave me a lot of more confidence - weird but true.

Great book!Reviewed in the United States on December 15, 2018
Great book for those who want to overcome the fear of public speaking and get more confident. The book explains why we get nervous and how to deal with our nerves. It also teaches you how to prepare a speech. Definitely a must read!
InspirationalReviewed in the United States on June 22, 2016
Many people have told me that I'm inspirational and I'm now in a position to start some speaking engagements. However, if I'm going to inspire other people, I have to make the speech really good! Steve has encouraged me to do so, and in this book I've received the guidelines to make it all happen. Thank you Steve!
