Pitch Perfect is my first reading venture into the world of business. I’m starting college in the fall, as a business major, and wanted to get some insight into the field I have chosen. I began searching for the best business books and this one seemed to be highly recommended. I started with it to learn the ways of the corporate world. Inside, I found more than I expected. Bill has accomplished a lot as a communications coach. Pitch Perfect is a solid source for learning to speak efficiently in any scenario. Whether it’s public speaking or catching up with an old friend, this book has you covered. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that struggles with job interviews, giving a presentation, or just looking to improve their overall talent as a speaker.
