Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Almost everyone gets nervous when it comes to public speaking, says Sarnoff (author of Speech Can Change Your Life ) in this new book. Most of us know this to be true and might hope that this book would provide a sure remedy. Unfortunately, it does not. Sarnoff has come up with some new variations and cute names for old techniques: preparation, rehearsal, breathing, attitude. She has a breezy writing style, but her constant name dropping about who she has helped is annoying. Nevertheless, her tips are tried and true ones and would undoubtedly help the frightened public speaker. Recommended only for libraries with plenty of money to spend. Rebecca Wondriska, Trinity Coll. Lib., Hartford, Ct.

- I didn't notice the publish date of 1989 when I bought it, so many of the tips are outdated. Still worth listening to.

There are some good hints in book...particularly the Sarnoff Squeeze and regarding preparation. Only two things interrupted my enjoyment of the book: Ms. Sarnoff established her authority on the subject in the first chapter, but then feels the need to continue to re-establish her authority throughout by name dropping to the end; there are also some references in the presentation section that stereotype men & women that I found inappropriate.
