From the Inside Flap

Turn Any Presentation into a Landmark Occasion
Ever wish you could captivate your boardroom with the opening line of your presentation, like Winston Churchill in his most memorable speeches? Or want to command attention by looming larger than life before your audience, much like Abraham Lincoln when, standing erect and wearing a top hat, he towered over seven feet? Now, you can master presentation skills, wow your audience, and shoot up the corporate ladder by unlocking the secrets of history's greatest speakers.
Author, historian, and world-renowned speaker James C. Humes--who wrote speeches for five American presidents--shows you how great leaders through the ages used simple yet incredibly effective tricks to speak, persuade, and win throngs of fans and followers. Inside, you'll discover how Napoleon Bonaparte mastered the use of the pregnant pause to grab attention, how Lady Margaret Thatcher punctuated her most serious speeches with the use of subtle props, how Ronald Reagan could win even the most hostile crowd with carefully timed wit, and much, much more.
Whether you're addressing a small nation or a large staff meeting, you'll want to master the tips and tricks in "Speak Like Churchill, Stand Like Lincoln.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What I liked about this CD set is that it gives a very good insight into the way famous speakers influence the listeners. It gives practical steps to build a winning speech. It is also full of examples.

Even better ifs:

- Most of examples are American & dated and not all of them are easy to refer to;
- I also think that 15-20% of the material is fluff and it did not have to be that way;

Summarising, this set of CDs is very insightful into public speaking and building your speech and on balance still gets a strong 'five'.

Format: Paperback
This is very much a collection of the thoughts of an American Republican of a certain age. The hammy anecdotes and casual sexism make it hard for me to connect with what he is saying. The text is long-winded: a chapter will start with something like "Use a famous quote" then spent thousands of words giving examples by white men: presidents or CEOs.
