Maximize Your Presentation Skills has helped aid me tremendously in my career. Ellen covers key points in different situations in the workplace in a very clear and straight forward manner. In working in the IT Software Support field, where communication is often a lost art, Ellen’s guidance has helped me in achieving success. This helpful knowledge has enabled me to become the Senior Software Support Specialist at my office. This book is a must read for everyone.

Maximizing your presentation skills has never been so easy! Kaye has covered all of the main points of both what to and what not to do in the work place, from clothing to bad habits. With its easy-to-read format the author has made reading and learning easier and faster than ever. I commend her on her Best-Seller. I can¿t wait to see what other books she has to offer!

I have attended one of Ellen's presentations and have found her to wander off on different tangents and not make sense of what she is presenting over. I purchased this book, hoping that the book would make up for her lack of knowledge at the presentation. However, this book feels just like one of her presentations. The author needs to get in touch with modern times, much of what her book lacks. The information that is presented is not in a clear manner and needs updating. This book might be good for teenagers, but for the seasoned veteran, it lacks vital information.

Excellent. A must read. This is not just a business book but a life skills book. This is self-help and motivational, inspirational, and practical all at once. Learn better ways to communicate in difficult situations, how to look and feel better to represent yourself and your company with more prestige and polish

I was disappointed in this book as it provides only very basic information. When the author talks about clothing, for example, she advises that you buy clothing that 'works best for you'. What is that, exactly? I find it hard to believe that she has consulted for top companies. Maybe her seminars are more informative than the book?

Ellen Kaye is a master at simplifying the pathway to success! Her ability to candidly and unobtrusively address our self-imposed personal and professional obstacles in a Q&A reading format, makes this book an absolute 'must read' for anyone trying to make it to the top and/or wanting to stay at the top!

Mastering the art of presentation is a challenge for most adults. This challenge is even greater for teenagers. As a 16 year old, I can attest that the topics covered in Maximize Your Presentation Skills are essential to presenting yourself effectively. Teens who want to succeed in school or in social environments will find this concise, witty book easy to read and an indispensable tool.
