      For anyone who wants to become a better presenter or, largely, a better communicator, this is a valuable book It moves away from the absolutes that people hear all the time i.e imagine your audience in their underwear and provides some reasonable and realistic suggestions Recommended for anyone who talks in public and wants to up their game a bit to be authentic, and less plastic

      If you have read taken than 1 2 trainings on public speaking, there is probably nothing new here However, this slim, easy to read book neatly summarizes with good examples tips for making better speeches presentations, such as know your audience backgrounds, expectations , why they should listen what s in it for them , what is the end result action they should take based upon what you say, etc.

      As a long time teacher of public speaking, I pick up this book with considerable skepticism The sub tile is Break the Rules, Make Mistakes, and Win Them Over The best thing Hough does is deflate the traditional advice about learning to be an effective speaker For example, she provides a devastating attack on the cliche about imagining the audience in their underwear He also reminds us that we shouldn t practice in front of a mirror It doesn t prepare us to look at a real audience while we are sp [...]

      This was a quick read with excellent tips on how to be a strong presenter It debunks many of the former public speaking rules The basics of being a good presenter is to really know your materials, rehearse several times and speak from the heart This was a helpful read for me and I recommend to all who want to improve their public speaking skills.

      Lots of good advice unevenly presented If public speaking intimidates you, this is a book you need to read Everyone else will be bored.

    8. Mary Ellen

      Very good summary of what NOT to do Because the books and the schools are teaching powerpoint all wrong Or at least they were when I left.

    9. Eric

      I am not really being fair to this book It is a good read for someone who is new to public speaking, but most of the advice and tips seemed were already familiar to me.

    10. Travis Williams

      It was a very good book about presenting, and while I didn t agree with everything listed, I definitely came away with a lot of good ideas in regards to presentations.
