Best Ever How To Speak in Public,
This review is from: Lend Me Your Ears: All you need to know about making speeches and presentations (Paperback)"Without doubt this is the best ever "how to" book on speeches and presentations, no matter what the topic - business, social, political, or technical.
As a CEO I have sat through so many turn-off presentations by people I know to be literate and interesting. This book demonstrates how unnecessary this is, and that one does not have to be a "born speaker" to make lively, interesting, really effective presentations.
It is completely practical in identifying the tried and tested techniques which have served the great communicators down the ages, all of which are easily learned and applied. It is also first class on how to use (but not overuse) modern computer aids to great effect.
No wonder speechwriters to Presidents Reagan and Clinton say the author Professor Max Atkinson is the speechwriters Guru."

Call me cynical, but I note that this is the ONLY book this person has reviewed on Amazon in over 3 years. Is this really the only book he has read in all that time that he thought was worth commenting on, pro or con?
Note: Of the people who have reviewed this book, 8 people who have not reviewed any other books. And 10 have not reviewed any other books on speechmaking and/or presentation skills.
