Editorial Reviews

Barbara Jacobs
Getting paid for doing something most Americans fear to do--public speaking--may seem an anathema to many, but writer-of-all-trades Gardner sets forth very convincingly the ways to make money on the lecture circuit. The details are all included: attracting an agent, bureau fees and contracts, business vs. college talks, and tips for traveling, speech writing and rehearsing, delivery, and podium questions and answers. Dull? Hardly, because he inserts anecdotes about famous speakers, uses a brisk, chatty style, and frequently relates his own Chautauqua-like tales. Appended are listings of speakers' associations, speakers' periodicals, meeting planner directories, directories of sites and speakers, and lecturers' showcases.
