Although I had already read 90% of the content by reading Carneige's other books on public speaking....

Very useful book! So easy to read and a great follow up to 'how to win friends and influence people'. Many criticise Carnegie's writing style and say he could just publish a list of do's and dont's. I believe that lists are ok but do not allow a deeper understanding of the message! The examples Carnegie uses are timeless and you can mirror the efforts in everyday conversations, meetings and e-mail not only in public speach making. Would recommend to anybody!

5.0 out of 5 stars The timeless classic on the subject 3 Sep 2001
Format:Paperback
I am an executive coach and this is one of my staple reference books which I often give to coachees to read.
This book has been around since the 1920's and is STILL the classic book on public speaking. It covers topics such as developing self-confidence, how to prepare for a speech or presentation, how to interest your audience, how to open and close a talk and how to develop stage presence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Professional 1 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very useful, already owned the 'how to make friends and influence people' (or similarly named) after I'd owned it and lost it as a student, and I was so happy with that decided to buy this one. It doesn't disappoint either. Meaningful advice and from professional examples I have taken on board a lot from these books.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a damn good book 15 Sep 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Written in the 40's this book is as true today as it was then. i can tell that it is good, because the author uses his own rules to write this book and it is interesting & accessible. PLEASE buy it. it is really really good.

Format:Paperback
This was a light brezzy read. I read this in one evening and the message stuck. I highly recommend this book for anyone who sees themselves speaking to crowds of people. It should be compulsory read for all university lecturers. Ministers and pastors esp need to read this book. This is a must read for all my children, when they come. Dale Carnegie, God bless you and all your children after you.

Need confidence to speak in public? This will help, it can't make a silk purse out of a pigs ear but should enable you to make a reasonable go at it.
