    Fantastic Preparation to any speech

    This book is fantastic if you're due to perform a presentation or speech in any setting. I was asked to give a presentation at work in front of many people I did not know but were keen to impress (eg Dr's, Consultants, surgeons etc). As you can imagine very nerve wracking so I bought this book on a whim it may give me some comfort and techniques I could apply. It is not a book that will relax you but if you put into practice the techniques and information and then apply it they will work. Like anything the more you put in the more you get out and although there are some obvious things in this book, they highlight to you what you need to do and throw in some things you've probably never even thought about. Highly recommended.

    Really useful

    This program helped coach me as I prepared for a particularly daunting public speech I had somehow agreed to make. Provides structure, examples, exercises, and many other encouraging things to help you get over avoiding tactics and start preparing with confidence.

    Hear it before you make your speech

    It will help you deliver a better speech. The book is divided into 10 different sections -- days -- and each one is filled with simple, tested approaches. Approaches that work, as explained by experiences of the author. I really liked this book.

    Very practical.

    What did you love best about 10 Days to More Confident Public Speaking?

    The speaker's voice is nice, light and easy to listen. He knows well what he is talking about. It is so good to listen while I'm doing chores around home. The writer did a great job listing up lots of steps and examples of preparing to make a public speech. This is very practical and I would like to listen many times! Highly recommended.

    Good choice of book for a Guide to Public Speaking

    I found it useful take notes on the things I found incredibly useful for each chapter and then summarize those notes in bullet points. A central point revolves around preparedness, but the details given in the book were helpful. I really recommend this book.

    Choose more wisely

    This book lacked substance. It should have been condensed into a ten minute podcast.
