    A Must Read!!

    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!

    Lame Presenter, Terrible Book

    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.

    Very Basic Advice

    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?

    Excellent

    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
