    Clear, Easy, Step-by-Step Approach

    I was recently asked to give a talk before a group of my medical-center colleagues. Frankly, I didn't know where to start. So I bought this book. Dr. Morgan lays out a very clear, step-by-step approach that anyone can follow, regardless of the topic or the audience. He took the pain out of structuring my speech, laid out exactly what I needed to do and when, and provided tips on delivery. My talk ended with a standing ovation. Here's hoping yours does, too.
