    Reviewed by Stephen B for Readers Favorite

    In his latest book, Chuck Swindoll moves through ten steps for public speaking. Using a bit of autobiographical material and explaining how he plans and writes sermons, he shows preachers and public speakers alike how to create an effective sermon or speech. In the first part he describes his calling to the ministry by relating his time in the military. When he returned to America after his military duty, he entered the seminary and learned time management, and shows how this came be part of the preparation for speaking. Other chapters include detailed explanations on introductions, illustrating, use of laughter and humor and, or course, conclusions. Yes, he does take it from a biblical point of view by urging the reader to allow God to do His part and there is even a chapter on praying.

    As an author trying to market and promote my own books, in part by public speaking, attending conferences, or just conversing with people one on one or in very small groups, I found "Saying It Well" invaluable. As an instructor in martial arts, I found this very helpful in how I speak to students and parents. This is not a logical, drawn out, clinical how-to book because besides learning about the steps to effective public speaking, I learned about an interesting man. Chuck Swindoll is a well known persona, but not many people know he conquered a terrible childhood stuttering problem. All of his points are amplified by examples, most of them personal. I really enjoyed the three main points at the very beginning: Know who you are; Accept who you are; and Be who you are. These are the keys to remember throughout the book because Swindoll constantly leads back to these. I will be keeping this book and referring to it often.
