Old But Good

Recorded long ago but very interesting. And, the points are still valid. And how can you not like this guy. I heard him for so many years on television sets in the background - Listening to this just automatically brings back some good memories. Beyond that it is a short listen so you've got nothing to lose.

A gold mine of witty, memorable quotes

Osgood has given a masterful narration of his short work which imparts to the reader exactly why public speaking is nothing to be afraid of. It's empowering, it's liberating and it's necessary.

Further still, Osgood is such a talented writer that you'll find more in this hour than some of the more modern, lengthy works. As someone who speaks for a living, for the price, you simply can't do better.
