Review

Scott Berkun tells it like it is. Whether you're speaking to 10 people or 1000 people, you will gain insights to take your presentation skills to the next level. It's a rare book that will make you think AND laugh. -- Tony Hsieh, CEO, Zappos.com--Tony Hsieh For those that are contemplating public speaking, or want to improve their current aptitude, it is impossible that after reading the book, that they won't be a better speaker. For those that simply want to know what goes into, and what makes a really good presentation, Confessions of a Public Speaker is also a worthwhile book to read. -- Ben Rothke, --Ben Rothke Your next talk will be ten times better if you read this book first. -- Gina Trapani, founding editor of Lifehacker.com--Gina Trapani Even if you prepare well and avoid disaster, of course, you may not charm everyone in the audience. But you can at least--with Mr. Berkun's help--avoid being cripplingly nervous before that brown-bag presentation and wishing it were tomorrow. -- Philip Delves Broughton, --Philip Delves Broughton With tips on how to combat pre-speech butterflies, battling the "tough room" and how not to bore people silly, this book will ensure your next Powerpoint will be a success. -- John Baichtal, --John Baichtal I've seen Scott speak a few times before, and he knows his stuff. Add to this his sense of humor, plus the fact that pretty much everyone can stand to learn some new ideas about speaking, and this book is a MUST for your collection. -- Chris Brogan, --Chris Brogan Smart, funny, and provocative, Scott Berkun's Confessions puts an very modern and wholly relevant spin on the fine art of public speaking. -- Suzy Welch, best-selling author and public speaker--Suzy Welch Loved it! This is a very informative and entertaining look at the important art of public speaking. Anyone who speaks for a living-- including teachers -- will greatly benefit from this book. -- Garr Reynolds, Author of Presentation Zen--Garr Reynolds Part confessional, part "how-to," this entertaining book is a godsend for anyone who would rather have an appendectomy without anesthetic than address a group in public. -- Virginia Backaitis, --Virginia Backaitis
