Public speaking is a huge fear for many people, but it doesn't have to be. Speaking with confidence is actually something you can practice; it involves subtle physical actions and not some innate, natural charisma. I have had the great fortune to develop effective public speaking skills in the field through the myriad of my professional and educational experiences.
Having worked the stage as an educator, actor, entertainer, master of ceremonies and business professional, I have identified and developed expedient techniques that comprise the artistry of public speaking, be it on the theatre stage, in the classroom or in the boardroom. In developing this practical approach, I have borrowed techniques from non-traditional sources such as gambling analysis, police interrogation, theatre and improv and adapted them to help you become a better speaker in all situations. Aristotle summed it up best: We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
I wrote this book because even though there are hundreds of books on public speaking, I felt there was something missing - a practical approach.

Great points even for experienced public speakers
Whether you are a nervous novice speaker or a confident experienced one I think you will find this short book quite useful. As an ebook it embeds video effectively to illustrate the suggested strategies. I've been speaking publicly for many years and have used a number of the suggested approaches, but I still found some new ideas. worth $2.99!
