As a person who gives a lot of presentations, I was looking forward to reading Confessions of a Public Speaker by Scott Berkun. I figured that I could gain some insight from another speaker and pick up a few tips. The book was far better than that! I learned a tremendous amount about how to prepare and deliver professional presentations in a very relaxed and enjoyable way. The book was very readable, funny, and quite informative. Scott shares with us his secrets and emphasis on preparation, and how being prepared can get you out of trouble if things start to go wrong in your presentation.
Scott tells a great story and gives great advice both to people new to speaking and folks like me who have been doing it a long time. Scott's style and good humor will make the book interesting for people who don't have to give presentations as well. His stories are honest as well as funny and make reading the book quite enjoyable. Lastly, I read this book in the Kindle format and was quite impressed with the layout and graphics (these days if it is not on the Kindle it doesn’t exist to me.) I highly recommend it to everyone needing to communicate effectively.
