    Outstanding Book!

    This is, by far, the best book on public speaking I have ever read. Lenny Laskowski makes is very clear what to do and provides so many examples in each chapter. It is very clear from this book that Lenny has a wealth of valuable experience and is one of the best in the world. I also attended on of Lenny's seminars and found it to be the best I have ever attended.

    Enjoyable to read!

    10 Days to More Confident Public Speaking is enjoyable to read and an excellent reference. The author¿s use of personal stories and many examples of effective speeches make this book fun and easy to read. He provides specific effective speaking tips throughout the book and I felt like I was learning without trying. My favorite part of the book is the section on overcoming speaking anxiety. It described me and how I feel when I speak. This section contains lots of background information on speaking anxiety and the author¿s top ten tips for overcoming it. I also enjoyed reading his top ten influential and memorable speeches. The book included excerpts from each speech which provided me both a quick history lesson and a reminder of how powerful a speech can be. I recommend this book for anyone who is interested in public speaking whether you are a beginner or an experienced speaker.
