Format: Paperback
How refreshing to find a book on communication that keeps you interested from page one to the end. Focussing on SSF (story, status and focus), the authors steer us through the minefield of presentations, the pitfalls to avoid and techniques for success, backing up their narrative with anecdotes and examples from the world of acting. The book ends with examples of Clinton's memorable speeches (plus a chapter on the dreaded Powerpoint presentation!) The book is laid out clearly with points to remember at the end of each chapter to consolidate what has been read. I found the use of Stanislavski's acting techniques particularly helpful and it is difficult not to get carried along by the enthusiasm that the authors have for sharing their information with the reader. If only this book had been around when I started doing presentations - I know a few people I'll be giving this book to as a present! I recommend this book to anyone involved in, or scared of, public speaking.

Teach Yourself The Clinton Factor 7 Oct 2008
By Sterling International Ltd Inc. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author does a great job teaching/explaining how to be a much more effective speaker. Using some of the book's techniques has really helped in our sales department! We are now much better keeping the conversation going in the direction we need and staying on point without being pushy. Wish this book had been out 10 years ago! This is a MUST READ for anyone in sales, a team leader, is a presentor.

BTW: Both Clintons should be hung for treason.
