Informative, funny and handy tips (no BS)
everything, and yes, it does not drag the same idea repetitively.
No I have not heard him before, but I loved his narration!!!!
I didn't know how one could do comic timing in book reading and he does it well!
While listening to the book I learnt the obvious mistakes I make but never realized. And I thought it was okay to be me. However, after listening to this book I am making conscious efforts on 3 things to begin with such as, having a loud/good voice, eye contact with as many people in the audience (talking to people, not talking at them) and ensuring a seamless transition of topics.
There were lots of great tips. However, the ones that hit home for me personally were:
Chapter 10 - When telling your story relive it as if it's the first time both you and your audience has heard it
Chapter 11 - Create an ad-lib library for those awkward moments
Chapter 12 - 5 commandments to effectively using humor
Being a Jacqueline of many trades I found Peter's tips regarding multiple business cards extremely helpful
The tips regarding PowerPoint was right on, also.
I have been involved in Toastmasters for a few years now and quite a few of the techniques Peter talks about reminded me of the various speeches we have to give. His book also expanded on a few techniques that I struggle with at Toastmasters.

This was very informative. He covered a lot of ground in a short period of time.
It was brief and to the point and well thought out.
There are a lot of tips and tricks that work well just in speaking to others in general as well as crowds full of people that are good to keep in mind to engage their interest.
Very pleasant speaking voice. Felt like I was at a seminar. Learned a lot.
