Description

The best way to become a confident, effective public speaker, according to the authors of this landmark book, is simply to do it. Practice, practice, practice. And while you're at it, assume the positive. Have something to say. Forget the self. Cast out fear. Be absorbed by your subject. And most importantly, expect success. "If you believe you will fail," they write, "there is hope for you. You will." DALE CARNEGIE (1888-1955), a pioneer in public speaking and personality development, gained fame by teaching others how to become successful. His book How to Win Friends and Influence People (1936) has sold more than 10 million copies. He also founded the Dale Carnegie Institute for Effective Speaking and Human Relations, with branches all over the world. JOSEPH BERG ESENWEIN (1867-1946) also wrote The Art of Story-Writing, Writing the Photoplay (with Arthur Leeds), and Children's Stories and How to Tell Them.

  • (2/5)
    The narrator could have been better given this was a book on public speaking. I heard words mispronounced on more than one occasion. Some of the referenced speeches are dated and sexist. That said, there are some good tips.

    The content of this book may be relevant the narrator makes it difficult to listen to. Awful representation for a book on public speaking!

    The way this excellent book narrated is pretty bad. Monotonous sound making listening very boring.
