What People are Saying About This

Cathy Lipper
In The SpotLight should become a handbook for people in the performing arts as well as those who are interested in succeeding in other occupations. Its exercises are a guide to developing communication skills that are essential to all relationships, both professional and personal. Janet Esposito has done a tremendous service to those whose potential has been limited by their social anxieties. (Cathy Lipper, M.S.W., D.C.S.W., Adjunct Professor, Western Connecticut State University)
Andrew Magin
In The SpotLight is a must read! Janet Esposito has taken a problem shared by many, and experienced by most as shameful, and provided a wonderful set of strategies to overcome it. Janet offers a unique contribution to the field. She integrates the powerful techniques of motivational enhancement and self-development with cognitive behavioral methods to produce perhaps one of the most powerful treatment formulas for social anxiety and speaking phobias. It is a pleasure to read Janet's book and I expect that it will help anyone who reads it and uses it! I believe that if you read In The SpotLight, you will need no other book on this topic. (Andrew Magin, Ph.D., Psychologist, Director, The Connecticut Center for Anxiety Disorders)

Self-expression is the most basic of human needs. Some of us, however, become paralyzed by anxiety and fears and are unable to communicate or perform effectively in public settings. Janet Esposito's book can help readers transform their previous negative experiences into golden new opportunities in sharing themselves through self-expression. A must read for anyone who fears public speaking and performing! (Dr. David N. Greenfield, Author of Virtual Addiction: Help for Netheads, Cyberfreaks, and Those Who Love Them, CEO, The Center for Internet Studies, President, The Connecticut Psychological Association)
Anthony Robbins
In The SpotLight is a dynamic workbook for the anxious presenter or performer! Short, easy-to-understand chapters with succinct summaries and powerful action steps, make this book a must-read! (Anthony Robbins Author, Awaken the Giant Within and Unlimited Power)
