What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
It was mildly interesting if you are looking for tips on general public speaking, however the book oddly focused on how to handle the media as if you were somehow Tom Cruise and needed to handle your own PR... like "what to do if the news crew pushes a microphone in your face" or "how to handle the TV talk show"... not really applicable to me (maybe it is to others)
Any additional comments?
I had hoped for a book on how to really promote myself and feel comfortable with actual tips on how to approach people and what to say. But this book so did not cover this... actually it did not really cover selling at all (except for a brief section on "you have to believe in your product to really sell it" - and even that part was not about ones self, but about a physical product).
Still don't know how to sell myself!

it is great book for beginners however it does not have many hooks to keep my attention.
Very little new and is too basic. Expressed a few points on voice, breathing, facial expressions and body language very well. Does not live up to the title or what was advertised.
