Mariella Frostrup, Observer columnist and radio/TV host has chosen Gravitas by Caroline Goyder, Vermilion as one of her summer reads in The Observer ‘The trick to achieving Gravitas, according to its author, Caroline Goyder, is to "fake yourself under pressure", which I'll also be learning more about. If I get through them all by autumn I'll be practically perfect and ready to start afresh on my Observer column readers!’"

This book get's straight to the point, teaching you exercises to improve your confidence and gravitas immediately, gradually building up to a level where i personally felt confident to deliver the speech. Learning the psychology helped me with my nerves because it made me more aware of what was going wrong, why it was going wrong and how to rectify it. I like the quotes from famous public speakers and you soon begin to understand that gravitas is something that can learned, like those speakers themselves have been taught.
This book is very well written because i get bored easily and it kept me engaged. Every time i read a chapter i learned something new. Another thing i like about the book is that it's not just preparing you for a speech, it's arming you with the life skills to communicate with people more effectively and leave a lasting impression. I can honestly say, have changed my mindset and given me greater impetus. If you read one book this year, Gravitas would be my personal recommendation.
The book gave me resonating advice. Caroline offers great advice to get that inner confidence.
The seven principles are very useful advice. I recommend this book to others to are looking for more effective ways of communicating with others.
