    Whether your presentations are one-on-one or to thousands, Tony Jeary covers everything speakers need to positively inspire any autience.

    Rastislav Kulich says: "Indispensable for every presenter"
    "Indispensable for every presenter"

    Zig Ziglar's foreword sets the expectations high but Tony Jeary's book beats them all.

    The best of the public speaking books I have read is full of principles & specific tips, which will help you deliver unforgettable presentation:

    - how making your audience feel important will help you shine
    - tips for powerful or relaxed opening
    - why you need & how to keep conversation with your audience
    - effective use of silence, little gifts, breaks, your credentials, humor & other details
    - how people gonna remember 25% of what they see, 50% of what they hear & see, and 75% of what they say
    - how to use audience barometers & handle questions

    Tough to imagine somebody would not benefit -- no matter how advanced.
    This is simply a jewel which deserves at least 10 stars.

  • Beating the Dow: A High-Return, Low-Risk Method for Investing in Stocks with as Little as $5,000

    • ABRIDGED (1 hr and 30 mins)
    • By Michael O'Higgins, John Downes
    • Narrated By Michael O'Higgins

    Rastislav Kulich says: "Inspiring & simple"
    "Inspiring & simple"

    O'Higgins suggests similar thing as Kyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) does = to be contrarian - do the opposite to what the others do.

    In specific case of DJ stocks, he says the public overreacts to both good & bad news from which you can benefit. From what happened to my company stock (Procter & Gamble) recently, I can only confirm this.

    I am still to try this technique in reality, so no proven successful track yet ;)

    At least half of the 1.5h is dedicated to brief history of the DJ stocks which I did not find as much helpful -- that's why 4 stars.

    • ORIGINAL (57 mins)
    • By Tony Buzan
    • Narrated By Tony Buzan

    Awaken the sleeping giant within you...your brain! Unlock the enormous untapped potential of your mind! Learn to build connections that will link the logical powers of your left brain with the imaginative powers of your right brain, with the end result being an expansion of your creative abilities.

    Rastislav Kulich says: "Interesting - though not a quick creative fix"
    "Interesting - though not a quick creative fix"

    Tony Buzan - will tell you interesting things about creativity:

    - to overcome you fear of failure vs rather not being creative
    - to develop both sides of your brain as they work in synergy
    Einstein was concert-level violin player, Da Vinchi was not only exceptional in art but also in science
    - to use creativity to remember 8 planets of solar system & other things forever
    - to use mid map technique to help you remember as well as be more creative
    - how Einstein used daydreaming & imagination to reach his findings

    Honestly, I did not find first 15 min exercises very helpful & expected a bit more tips on how to be more creative - that's why 4 stars.

  • Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most

    • ABRIDGED (6 hrs)
    • By Douglas Stone, Bruce Patton, Sheila Heen
    • Narrated By Douglas Stone, Bruce Patton, Sheila Heen

    Holiday gatherings can be stressful times for families, and occasionally the conversation around the holiday table can get heated. Difficult Conversations shows you a way out of this dilemma; it teaches you how to handle even the toughest conversations more effectively and with less anxiety.

    Jean-Pierre says: "A must-hear audiobook !"
    "Tripled my communication effectiveness"

    The authors provide number of specific tips which will help you improve your communication:

    - the need to understand others logic - what u say makes sense, but what others say also makes sense to them
    - the 3rd-party-story technique to ease the tension
    - how you can express the feelings without being emotional instead of being emotional without expressing feelings
    - how different people have different perceptions -> illustrated with Harvard experiment where two groups were valuating the same company using the same data. The selling group came up with +30% figure while the buying group with -30% figure vs the fair value
    - why "identity", "feelings" & "what happened" conversations are difficult
    and much more...

    The only reason to give 4 stars was a bit annoying/sleepy voice of one of the authors.

  • Dreams into Action: The 2 Day Seminar

    • Abridged/Unabridged (6 hrs)
    • By Milton Katselas

    Rastislav Kulich says: "Ziglar's bad immitation"
    "Ziglar's bad immitation"

    Katselas is a good speaker but that is basicaly it. He does not deliver too much in those 6 hours. If you are looking for good motivational book buy Zig Ziglar's "Over the Top" or "Magic of Thinking Big" by Schwartz which are available on Audible. They are spectacular!

    • By Zig Ziglar
    • Narrated By Zig Ziglar

    Nicholas says: "INSPIRATION"
    "Life & Career Booster"

    So wonderfully narrated by Zig that I could not resist to listen to it almost everyday since I have bought it.

    Zig will tell you:
    - how failure can be & should be motivator
    - how positive thinking will not help you do anything BUT how it will help you to do everything better
    - that you can only get what you want when you get enough other people to achieve what they want
    - that the most important picture is the one you have of yourself
    - that if you go to world looking for a friend - they won't be any BUT if go out to be a friend, there will be plenty

    ... and lots of the things which helped me in my short but quite quick career at P&G.

    Great ideas & stories in this book in combination with Zig's great sense of humor makes this book evergreen!
