A master at work.

This presentation by Patricia Fripp was exceptional even for the professional speaker
it incorporates narrative, tone, emphasis, preparation, expertise and most of all the desire
to help the new generation of speakers.

good but could have been great

some small things distracted and detracted for me
1) 59 minute book, but 15 minutes of intro blah blah. I really started to worry 10 minutes in if actually she was going to get into techniques. I worried knowing it was 59 minutes if it was only a sample book
2) the slow emphasis - I know it was done for effect to extenuate the point but it starts to get annoying after a while as it feels like you are being treated as dumb

otherwise good tips, but would suggest it is not goo enough as a stand alone book and you need another to go with it like Talk Like Ted or Steal the Show
