    What disappointed you about The 7 Principles of Public Speaking?

    For many people, the biggest hurdle about public speaking is fear. Overcoming this fear will not make you a good speaker, it merely makes you a slightly tolerable one. This book, sadly, does not go further than trying to negotiate this fear. And in this, the proposed methods are quite childish and probably will not have much real effect. And even though the book boasts about also making great speakers greater, it actually does not even attempt it.

    Approx 50% of the book is straightforward bragging - it goes over and over again how great of a presenter the author is and how great is the book.

    Thus, for absolute beginners, this book is a very time consuming way of learning ~3 truths - be yourself, prepare, tell stories. That's it. For advanced speakers there's nothing in it.
