Would you listen to Beyond Powerful Radio again? Why?

If you make your living from talking or if communicating compellingly is important to you then this book is brilliant. I love Geller's line "tell the truth and never be boring". But there's a lot more to it than that. There's great info here for anyone who does public speaking and really for all media professionals, radio producers, presenters, podcasters -. I'll be recommending it to anyone who will listen :)

What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond Powerful Radio?

Geller's maxim - "Tell the truth and never be boring" is classic. And the more I think about it the more important it seems.

What does Valerie Geller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She reads it in a very engaging way and this compels you to take on board the messages. I think you get that when you read it too, but the force of her personality coming through in her reading makes her messages even more urgent. I like the way you can hear a smile in her voice at times. She's very likeable.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

So far it's made me laugh.

Any additional comments?

If you're a public speaker get it. If you're in media it's compulsory.
