2 out of 5 (1 rating)


"Splashy slides, confident body language, and a lot of eye contact are fine and well.

But if a speech is rambling, illogical, or just plain boring, the impact will be lost.

Now everyone can learn to give powerful, on-target speeches that capture an audience's attention and drive home a message.

The key is not just in the delivery techniques, but in tapping into the power of language.

Prepared by an award-winning writer, this authoritative speech-writing guide covers every essential element of a great speech, including outlining and organizing, beginning with a bang, making use of action verbs and vivid nouns, and handling questions from the audience.

Plus, the book includes excerpts from some of history's most memorable speeches - eloquent words to contemplate and emulate".
