One of my biggest fears has always been speaking in public. If you put me in a group of people or one-on-one and I usually do fine. The problem is when I get asked to get on a stage or in front of a class. I think the big problem I have is that I just start to ramble. When I ramble I get nervous and confused and go off on a tangent. Like the reviews before me, I have used the points in this book to streamline my speeches and my instructions. Going into a presentation I also feel like I have a set-out path - a beginning and end, so if I go off tangent, I always know how to bring it home.
I recommend this book to anyone who isn't comfortable speaking. It gives you great information that you can apply in any situation. I have to say I liked this book so much, I have a hard copy for my office at home and a digital copy on my kindle to use as a reference when needed.
