      "Speak Smart"

      First, the banter and silly voices distract from the content. Second, most of the content was silly and few useful recommendations were made. Third, the book is dated and its references to presentation technology were essentially useless. There are much better books on this topic at Audible.

      "Book decieving"

      The book only tells you have to make a speech better. Does not teach how to over come stage fright as stated.
