"Intimate and Brilliant Mentoring for Speakers"
I enjoyed the book in the author's own voice. The stories and mentoring had life and felt personal.
It validated a conviction I have had most of my life.
Her voice... I felt like she was reliving it for me personally...from a mentor to an aspirant...from a wiser friend...because it was her story in her own voice, it made me remember the words better and laugh harder.
Tearful in some places and cackle at other places
Gail Larsen was very responsive when I wrote to her for resources. This an author who genuinely supports aspiring speakers, even those like me who she has never met.
I read and listen to many books, 2-4 per week. My employment has allowed this for the last 25 years. There have only been a few I couldn't stand to finish,this is one.
Quoting President Obama and Al Gore as great thought leaders is a clue to why. The crazy left wing slant on everything else is another. There are many other great books on speaking you can actually learn something from. Pass on this one, it's more interested in pushing a left wing agenda then teaching you to speak professionally.
