Waste of Money

Would you try another book from Ramakrishna Reddy and/or Derek Doepkar?

No

Has Toastmasters Secret turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narration was odd; there was no "flow" to audiobook.

Any additional comments?

I wish I could get my money back. I will be very cautious with these so-called "reviews," before I purchase these things in the future. There is no way this audiobook had that many positive reviews. I wish I had bought something else.

to fast for me

I liked the concepts but felt that ot was to fast to comprehend. I lost the meaning because the reader was moving through the material to fast.

good books but...

the book was really great. great tips etc. I look forward to reading the physical copy. the narrator didn't pronounce the Indian/Hindi/Tamil words correctly our name effort to. if a person giving a speech can't say the names right it's usually considered bad. So there's that major point. I wish Reddy himself would have narrated it.

Meh

This was kind of weird. I guess I expected more of a book that discussed the different structures of a speech. The examples were not interesting and it was odd to have every part of a speech broken down down into "script/analysis". Not every speech is going to be a viral online masterpiece but I'm not sure that I came away with too much from this book.

Confusing and frustrating book.

I was hoping that I would learn how to talk at a toastmasters group. I found this book completely useless to what my needs were. I could even finished the book because it was like running down rabbit holes.
