    This has been an absolutely essential guide for me since 2007!  

    This has been an absolutely essential guide for me since 2007!  I had no experience as a public speaker
    when I wrote my first speech. The techniques that the author describes are extremely effective and
    have enabled me to create and deliver some very successful speeches as a cancer survivor and
    research advocate. I highly recommend this book.

    Make Words, Sounds and Images Your Servants for Mobilizing Your Audience

    James Humes rightly emphasizes the importance of being an efficient communicator for all avenues of life. Humes gives his audience 21 tips that he has identified through a meticulous examination of some memorable quotations attributed to famous politicians and writers. Speakers can stand out in front of a crowd or among a small group of people by applying these tips to their presentation. Why bore an audience by telling a lengthy joke at the beginning of a speech, inviting the audience to fall asleep though a windy talk and busy slides or ending a presentation on a flat note? Instead why not speak about a personal experience to which the audience can relate, energize a talk by the use of a memorable bon mot or end a talk on a strong note? No one needs to be one of the famous people quoted in this book to come up with a striking note that makes the difference between a boring speaker and a riveting one.
