Indispensable for every presenter

Zig Ziglar's foreword sets the expectations high but Tony Jeary's book beats them all.

The best of the public speaking books I have read is full of principles & specific tips, which will help you deliver unforgettable presentation:

- how making your audience feel important will help you shine
- tips for powerful or relaxed opening
- why you need & how to keep conversation with your audience
- effective use of silence, little gifts, breaks, your credentials, humor & other details
- how people gonna remember 25% of what they see, 50% of what they hear & see, and 75% of what they say
- how to use audience barometers & handle questions

Tough to imagine somebody would not benefit -- no matter how advanced.
This is simply a jewel which deserves at least 10 stars.

Standing ovation

That's what I received after listening to this audio. I used probably only half of the techniques described in the audio and had a hugely successful presentation. My boss commented, "I was very impressed. Best presentation I've seen in the four years I've been with this company." M Itchell must have listened to another title.

I found value

I found this book very valuable.
I have no complaints about the narration. I'm more concerned with the message.
Both were great.

Couldn't even finish it

For someone purporting to Inspire, its too ironic that this recording could not hold the interest of a professional instructor (myself) who really wanted to learn as much as he could. The highlights were the excerpts from actual seminars given to live audiences - these you can learn from. Imitation works far better for learning to present than listening to explanations, so his book was flawed in concept from the get-go.

I would love to recommend a better book on this topic - but I've not found one yet. In my opinion nothing beats going to see people present as a way of learning how to present, and now I believe nothing works poorer than attempting to read about this subject.

Fine for amateurs

This is fine if you are an anxious speech phobic, but recommendations like 'keep your jacket buttoned' aren't going to help experienced speakers looking for extra help.

A presenters must! Informative and useful!

It exceeded my expectations! Tony is personable and entertaining, and the information presented is truly a game changer! I use it daily.
