I know I'm not the only person who, while generally confident in most areas of my life, becomes a sweaty, nervous wreck at the prospect of having to stand up and address a group of people. One of the many good things about Cristina Stuart's book is that she addresses this fear head-on, rather than merely concentrating on the more technical aspects of how to construct a good speech. I bought it because I'm going to be the best man at a big wedding next year, and after reading it I'm already more relaxed about the prospect. Money well spent.
