There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But still It is one of the best self improvement book, helped me a lot in improving in public speaking. Basically it gives you great idea on how to write your speech and some great techniques on delivering it. This book will help you get prepared.
But don't expect the that book will do it all for you, it is all the game of CONFIDENCE!! So just be more confident and awaaz me dum hona chahiye.
Nothing is impossible, from a guy whose heart beat increased rapidly when told to talk on public speaking, now I feel pretty excited and would love to speak if given a chance.
Warning :- 1) Recommended for those who have habbit of reading.
2) Who are truly determined about it.
At some point of time you may get bored from it. But show consistency towards reading this book it will definitely help you through out the journey.
Thank you Amazon for such quick delivery.
* Shrink Packaging of books to avoid soiling. Excellent packaging I must say!
* FSC Grade Natural shade text paper which makes the book very light-weighted and portable
* The cover has a beautiful design with an amazing matte lamination!
* Cost is pretty much justified for a book finishing of this quality.
If you are looking for Dale Carnegie or self-help books, this is your one stop solution.
Not only is this a comprenhensive guide to developing the art of public speaking (a job it performs as it should: offering an emphasis on practice and practical, specific advice)...but by trying to solve that particular problem so ambitiously, it ends up offering the solutions an endless set of areas of life.
This book is, escentially, a discussion of every problem that involves the process of gathering and communicating ideas. "Gathering and communicating ideas"... it is what these days gets mistakingly refered to as "the creative process". Every form of art and design, from writting, to drawing, to acting, falls into this cathegory of "gathering ideas and then communicating them to an audience".
If you engage in one of these "creative activities"...have you ever gone through an "art block"? that frustrating mental block that inhabilates your action and stops you from generating ideas/putting them on paper? well, thinking of a speech in real-time is a race that makes you jump through the same hurdles. The methods described to make speeches here, effectively deal with those same barriers. By consciously applying those techniques, you could theorically overcome any "art block" that gets in the way.
Ever been gotten stuck while learning *something*? preparing a speech requires proper *internalization* of the material, and this book covers tons of methods for internalization and deep understanding that are as applicable to speech-making as they are to learning /any/ theorical material.
But at its core, what makes this stand out is its standing, valiant, daring desire to actually, honestly, humbly speak about that (much mentioned, but seldom defined) concept known as "human nature".
The author goes to great leghts to identify what is it that makes people *tick*.
What are the principles that rule our lives and that will make us *do* things- like let someone give us a lecture? what makes people INTERESTED in things? if we make the conscious descision to understand those principles, to disect them and review them fearlessly, then those principles will be the applicable to every single area of our lives. Whenever we might need to infleunce people to take action, or to win them to our way of thinking... to make our ideas clear; or simply to entertain...that whole process is described so beautifully and thoughtfully that it is what gives this text its trascendential quality.
The one flaw in this text (not nearly as evident in HTWFAIP) is the same present in most other western classics of the 20th century: it is uncomfortably bigoted. There are a considerable ammount of racist passages and anectodes, and the evangelist christianist perspective gets tiring very quickly. Althought these features aren't prevalent enough to make it un-readable, it does make getting through some reasings slightly more difficult and hinders the overall message sometimes.
(I do not know however if newer editions have been edited to take out said problematic material, which is certainely possible. The book I own was a second-hand copy purchased in a book-fair years ago...and it doesn't even have the year of printing or editorial house!)
With all that said...considering how this book offers solutions to many other problems not inherent to public speaking, it should be obligatory reading to almost anybody who deals in any way with the act of communication, at any point in their lives!

I find the book rather outdated for someone of the younger generation.
