Synopsis: Great speakers aren't just born; they prepare and they practice. THE ELEMENTS OF GREAT PUBLIC SPEAKING takes the fear out of taking the podium, distilling essential techniques and tricks for just about any speaking occasion. Experienced businesspeople, nervous students, best men, and eulogists alike can benefit from the author's simple, direct, and tested advice on everything from body language and word choice to responding to the audience and overcoming stage fright. Because there's no such thing as a boring topic—just boring speakers—ELEMENTS shows how to look, sound, and act like someone worth listening to.Reviews“The go-to guide for anyone about to stand up and say something. . . A practical guide to thumb through before every speech, whether it's your first or 500th.” —USA Today
