4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reminders of things we really already know 28 Aug 2010
By Ariel - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book. Like so many business effectiveness books, if you really consider what you are hearing, it is mostly motherhood and apple pie, but the author does an excellent job of making most chapters an "Ah-Ha" moment. Well written, crisply delivered and some really good messages. I finished it an afternoon and it was well worth the (initially looked expensive) price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good 10 Nov 2010
By Mario Persona - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased two other books (Kindle) from the same author (I am a professional speaker in Brazil) and before I read them I found this one and decided to begin with it. It is very practical and easy to read, like any presentation should be. The book itself might be your best lesson on how to communicate your ideas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff 16 Mar 2011
By G. Welton - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's a lot of great and helpful info in these short essays! Although written mainly for those in the business field, it would be nice for others (anyone who speaks or gives presentations)to read and practice some of the skills presented here: how the audience's eye travels on a visual presentation, how to catch your audience's attention at the start of a speech, how to think of your audience and their needs when trying to persuade them.

I teach speech class to high school kids and found/was reminded of helpful things to tell my students.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good lessons 10 July 2012
By Carol E. Rachal - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this from cover to cover, so to speak, and found it to be a valuable tool. Many of the lessons are common sense but it still gives good pointers of successful communication. I am a college-level instructor and always looking for better ways to "reach" my students. Anything that helps me communicate better is always good. I recommend this book.

Good enough...but doesn't have a Table of Contents. Not sure I agree with everything the author(s
But it represents another viewpoint.

Think of the slides and graphics as speaker support. They are there to support the presenter, not the other way around. &quote;
