Customer Review

on 10 March 2010
As with his other books: Making things Happen and Myths of innovation Scott Berkun combines expert story telling and a command of his subject to create an entertaining and practical book on the do's and don'ts of public speaking.

Chapter 5, Do not eat your microphone, alone is worth the cover price, as the simple process he applies to creating a presentation can be used equally as effectively when creating essays and blog posts.

The book boils down to three main themes:

Know you material
Know your audience
Practice, practice, practice

Off these principles Scott shares honest, hard won advice which is guaranteed to make your next presentation a much more rewarding experience for you and your audience.

This book is for anyone who has to give a presentation to their boss, clients or has ambition to become a conference speaker. It's a highly enjoyable, quick read (once you start you won't want to put it down - I read it in a day).
