The Art of Public Speaking | [Dale Carnegie, J. Berg Esenwein (preface)]

The Art of Public Speaking

This book by Dale Carnegie is as true and helpful today as when it was written almost a century ago. Listen, practice and succeed! It's a "must listen" for anyone who feels they have something valuable to say but is not quite sure how to go about saying it.Say the name "Dale Carnegie" and How to Win Friends and Influence People usually comes to mind. What is not as well known is that Carnegie was a professor of public speaking and that, over the years, this book has been just as popular.

Publisher's Summary

Good communication can make everything easier. This book by Dale Carnegie is as true and helpful today as when it was written almost a century ago. Listen, practice, and succeed! It's a "must listen" for anyone who feels they have something valuable to say, but is not quite sure how to go about saying it.

Say the name "Dale Carnegie" and How to Win Friends and Influence People usually comes to mind. What is not as well known is that Carnegie was a professor of public speaking and that, over the years, this book has been just as popular. Written with some assistance from Carnegie's colleague, J. Berg Esenwein, who wrote the Preface and some of the “thought questions” at the end of chapters, the book remains a valuable asset in classes on public speaking.

Carnegie is a true teacher of inspiration. Listen to this book, and you will be spell binding your audiences soon after.

    "Excellent"

    Informative and inspiring! After listening to this I actually got up and gave a talk to my club. Never thought that would happen.

    Story
    "Couldn't finish it"
    Would you try another book from Dale Carnegie and J. Berg Esenwein (preface) and/or Jim Killavey?

    Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People was excellent. This book was torture.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Road


    What three words best describe Jim Killavey’s performance?

    Did his best


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I had read the comments and saw that others had panned it, but I wanted to listen to it anyway since I needed to be prepared as possible for my dissertation defense. Unfortunately, I couldn't get through it.

    Story
    "Oh God help me...!!!"

    Where do I start? I wish that the guy narrating this would have read the book first, maybe he could have got some pointers and could have done a better job. The book goes on and on about nonsense that goes beyond common sense to monotony.

    Actually, I think that may be the only good thing about this book is the irony of the chapter on not being monotonous is so monotonous...well, you get the point. This is AWFUL. No kidding, don't buy it, its terrible. You have been warned.

    Really





    Really, really


    "snif" I miss my credit

    "Said in 12 hours what could have been done in 2"

    I was pretty disappointed. Though there is clearly good information in this book, it was lost in the hours (yes hours) of quotes from speeches and books. Though it is necessary to have these quotes, you don't need a quote to go on for 10 minutes to get a point across. The same goes for this book. Get to the point! I traditionally go with unabridged titles, thinking I'm going to get more helpful information. I think I learned a valuable lesson. If you're thinking of listening to this book, look for an abridged version.

    "Hard to listen to"

    This is one of the few audio books that I have purchased that I did not listen to in entirety in the first month.

    The story is way too drawn out giving repetitive detail over and over. This would be fine in written form as you could skim the subjects you did not need further info on and focus on the ones where extra information was useful to you.

    The boringness of tht excessive repetition of the same principle is compounded by the narrator. I do not feel that he did the book any favors with his narration style.

    I chose to listen to "how to win friends and influence people" again rather than finish the first half of this book
