There are some important points made in this audiobook, particularly in the summary, but it takes awhile to get to the good parts. I found myself lost and confused more than once.
This book was a quick informational way to better oneself. It was a valuable and important acquisition of know-how that one should have when talking in public. I recommend,nits a quick read that may change the way you talk.
The topic is interesting to me as an entrepreneur. However, the recording quality was so poor it practically made my ears ache.The performance was dull (it's a lecture after all). The points raised in the speech can be found in many other similar titles nowadays. It is very easy for me to discourage anyone buying this audio book, perhaps even to the speaker himself.
It doesn't seem a worthy investment to my money and, more importantly, my time. I would listen to something else.
Disappointed in the other reviewers comments. I thought this lecture was great. There are hundreds of tips and tricks books on speaking but few on why it matters. This audio recording helped me a lot and I have used it to help other friends design more meaningful talks.
No practical applications or detailed instructions here, just life experience gobletygook! I had to drink coffee and take No Doze just to reach the end of this recorded lecture...
