Have you ever been put on the spot and kicked yourself later for not having a substantial, confident response? Have you ever lost out on a promotion because you didn't get along with your colleagues or boss? Have you ever blanked when delivering a speech or a presentation? Saying the right thing isn’t just about feeling comfortable. It's also essential for building successful relationships, getting ahead at work, and increasing your income. To get what you want, you have to know how to ask for it, how to negotiate, how to react. That's where Lisa Marshall's audiobook comes in.

This book was good, but not really what I was expecting. I can present in front of small groups, but have terrible public speaking anxiety. I'm now at the level where it will be a major limiting factor in my career advancement. The title made me think that this would be a book about public speaking, where in reality it was more of a business communications 101. There were definitely some interesting points, but I feel this book would be best for someone who is interested in improving their overall communication style or are early in their career.
