From the Back Cover
A pioneer in the field of self-help, Dale Carnegie distilled his experiences as a salesman and lecturer in his first guide to successful speech-making, The Art of Public Speaking. This predecessor to his bestseller, How to Win Friends and Influence People, was co-written with J. B. Esenwein. Its direct, practical advice for emphasizing ideas for easy comprehension and high impact ranges from finding an appropriate rhythm to conquering stage fright.
Avoiding the use of tricks and shortcuts, the authors suggest methods for developing one's thoughts in order to form an original, authentic manner of speaking. They advise speakers to practice their presentation skills, offering useful tips for speech-making in both personal and professional situations. First published in 1915, this classic continues to encourage people from all walks of life to overcome their self-consciousness and increase their effectiveness and comfort as public speakers.
About the Author
Dale Carnegie was an American self-improvement lecturer and author. Born in 1888, Carnegie was the son of a farmer, and worked throughout his childhood helping his parents with various tasks on the farm. He was fortunate, however, in that he was able to obtain an education in his young adulthood at a nearby Teacher s College. Carnegie worked as a salesman and an actor before he took up teaching public speaking courses at a New York YMCA branch, where he was living at the time. Carnegie s public speaking career took off, and through his success he was able to have several of his books published. His first book, Public Speaking: a Practical Course for Business Men sold well, but his most impressive achievement was the publication of his book How to Win Friends and Influence People, which was an immediate bestseller when it was published in 1936, and has gone on to sell millions of copies in thirty-one languages. Carnegie also worked to open the Dale Carnegie Institute, a learning-ground for those interested in his public speaking and self-improvement techniques, and Dale Carnegie courses are still taught today. Carnegie died of Hodgkin s Disease on November 1, 1955. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

The reviewer is the author of the Kindle book entitled: Sex Education for Adults
Secrets To Amazing Sex and Happily Ever After Too
It approaches public speaking from the absolute best perspective: it's not about you, it's about THE MESSAGE!
AoPS also has amazing introductory piece on being courageous.
One major caveat to keep in mind: The style of public speaking has changed in the past +100 years. Gone are the days of three-hour booming oratories by Webster and Beecher. In their stead modern speaking have to be quick-hitting with profound and engaging stories.
