What People Are Saying

Dwight Edstrom
In this book, one can find old and new, for that time when you are at odds over a clincher, a message or that one thing that will sell your audience. Take it and run with it!
— (Dwight Edstrom, 1998-99 Region IV Governor, Toastmasters International, Rapid City, SD.)
Lyle George
When I heard that Roger Polt was coming out with a book, my first reflex was to buy a copy sight unseen. The idea of being able to tap into Polt's wisdom and wit in book form for my own use was truly exciting. Crackers for Your Soup! is a great read and a very useful tool when you're trying to keep an audience interested in what you have to say. Buy this book. I did.
— (Lyle George, President, George & Associates, International Business Consulting and Sales, Seattle, WA.)
Phil E. Rzewnicki
Roger Polt is a great story teller. I have experienced with great amusement the colorful and captivating ways he weaves his tales. Now in written form he has captured those same skills to allow all of us to enjoy those stories at any time. With this book, we can now share these stories and bring smiles and laughter to others.
