Publisher's Summary

A basic, practical "how to" guide to more successful communication

No matter what your career objectives are, Communicate What You Think will help you achieve them. You'll do a better job in selling ideas, plans, or procedures to associates or customers. Your sales presentations will sparkle. Your turn at the conference table will be a happier, more rewarding experience. More people will tend to seek you out at social events and want you to head up community projects. Even your written reports, letters and memos will get more attention - and action. You'll discover how to transmit messages from one person to another without sacrificing meaning or intent... how to master the art of oral expression and, at the same time, hold your audience... how to build a speech from a formula (and when not to)... how to prepare visuals that help your audience "get the picture"... how to say something worthwhile and still leave them feeling good.

Earl Nightingale, creator and host of INSIGHT, a monthly audio-cassette and book of stimulating ideas, and one of the world's best known authorities on high level performance and human potential, is chairman of the board of Nightingale-Conant Corporation. He has spent 30 years in research on what makes people - and therefore any company or organization - successful. He is often referred to as the dean of personal development. He is also the author and narrator of many audio programs devoted to personal development, sales and management training, and human relations, including of course The Earl Nightingale Audio Library. His famous message, "The Strangest Secret", earned a Gold Record from Columbia Records for sales exceeding a million copies - the only recording of its kind to receive such an award. He has also received the Golden Gavel from Toastmasters International and many other awards ranging from a special in-person recognition by the Queen of England to an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree.

Too Notch Info On Communication

I thoroughly enjoyed the information Earl Nightengale gave on becoming an outstanding public speaker! Earl kept it simple yet understandable. It's the little things that you can pick up to have you become like a professional speaker!

Precious when it comes down to making a speech

First of all I would start by recommending all of Mr. Nightingale's materials as his style is unique in every way.

In this programme he concentrates on the 'speech and presetation' subjects. I must admit that even though the recording is old, it's as current as possible when it comes down to advice. I've really found a lot of material to write down and use for my future presentations or public speeches. Don't for a second think that the material might be outdated due to its age...good advice never gets old!

Like with a lot of programmes from Nightingale-Conant I see it as a bit short and would have loved to have a bit more quantity to it. But Quality wise, I see this as 5 star material.

Loved Earl. Narrator and music sucked

There was no need for the extremely annoying music and narrator that interrupted Mr. Nightingale! I HATED THAT part

Outstanding - and also love the narrator and music

Another gem from Earl Nightingale! This audio covers the essential basics of everything you need to know to deliver an effective speech or presentation. It will also educate you on what not to do. Mr. Nightingale is eminently qualified to speak on this topic, and boy does he deliver in this audio. You'll want to listen to it again and again to ingrain the principles into your subconscious mind. I would also like to address the review that disliked the narrator and music - that is fine and everyone is entitled to their opinion. Personally, I loved the narrator (Steve King who is a total pro) and the background music. The music is 80's synth soundscape, and while it may seem a little dated and even cheesy, I found it very motivational and a perfect accompaniment to Earl's message.
