Engaging Information!

Was looking for a good audiobook to help with Publish Speaking. I've had my share of reading information on the subject but they seem do have the similar academic tone. Not with this title. Got me engaged from the get-go. Not only was the information provided in great detail, I was able to listen without losing attention, and for me, that means a lot. Recommended listen for learning how to deal with your Public Speaking fears and anxiety.

Easy to read and very relatable!

I love the fact that the writer tells his own story and the struggles he went through in losing his fear of being in front of a crowd. Throughout the book the reader gets lots of tips and tricks they can use in getting rid of this fear. Actionable steps that are definitely achievable. This book is very relatable! The performance of the narrator is very good as well, easy to listen to with lots of intonation.

I tried it at my salary negotiation, and it worked

This book gives easy to apply, practical tips on public speaking. However, I was able to use the suggestions for a recent interview at work. I requested a meeting with my boss to conduct a salary negotiation and figured that this type of meeting is really a presentation of my own skills. Having recently finished this book these suggestions within were top of mind and and I applied them during this interview. I used mental rehearsal and relaxation techniques as suggested and got a couple of extra thousand salary! Thank you to the author!

A very detailed guide to ridding your fears

I've always suffered from stage fright or massive nerves before giving a speech - like at a recent wedding and also giving sales presentations at work to senior management. Thankfully, this author guides the listener in all aspects of fears and how to outcome them - step by step. Well worth the three hours! I fully recommend!

Lots of helpful information

I have struggled with public speaking my whole life. It has been an issue since I was young. It gave me tons of anxiety leading up to it and maxiumum anxiety while actually giving my speech. I finally decided to work on my weaknesses and this audiobook is very helpful. It teaches you every trick in the book to manage your fear. It covers everything from the root of your fear to multiple different techniques to control your adrenaline. If you are someone who has been struggling with the fear of public speaking for a while. I recommend giving this audiobook a try.
