You realize that this book is special when on one of the earliest pages author Richard Zeoli speaks of "making a human connection with your audience." He adds that connecting with our fellow human beings is one of the most magical feelings that we can ever experience, and relates that to a speaker and the contact he/she establishes with the audience. A communications expert who has coached politicians and business executives,Zeoli estimates that 99% of the population is afraid to speak publicly. I find that perhaps a bit hyperbolic if we accept his definition of public speaking as occurring "any time you talk to anyone and someone else is present to hear you." But that should not negate the value of this book in helping to overcome anxieties when standing before an audience. Zeoli boils down the art of successful speaking to seven principles of public speaking from which the title of the book was derived. The seven principles are as valuable when simply making conversation or a presentation in the boardroom as they are when you are standing behind a lectern in a large auditorium, the author believes. The 7 Principles of Public Speaking devotes a chapter to each principle, and summarizes all seven by creating a very helpful fictitious exchange between a speaker and a mysterious figure who becomes his coach. In this unique presentation-he titles the chapter The Master Communicator-the author cleverly creates vignettes to demonstrate each principle in action. This is a book well worth reviewing time and again between speeches.

I don¿t give speeches to large crowds, but I do need to communicate effectively with clients and prospective clients in meetings and pitch conversations. Zeoli¿s expertise has really helped streamline my communication and make it more effective for reaching my target audience ¿ even, and especially, when that is an audience of one or two. He has an incredible gift for recognizing subtle opportunities to improve and also giving small yet concrete steps to achieve that aim. I cannot recommend his work highly enough ¿ for anyone who regularly talks to clients or a boss or even a friend, this book can help.
