Review:

...In a straightforward style, she explains how to research audiences (and more). -- Presentations magazine, July 1998

A comprehensive how-to book that covers the gamut on presentation preparation. -- Successful Meetings magazine, June 1999

Marjorie Brody in her new book, Speaking is an Audience-Centered Sport, maintains that "life is a presentation." She elaborates, "From going on job interviews to making sales calls, your ability to present with confidence and competence will have great impact on your career."The book contains 11 chapters. Its large print makes it easy on the eyes. I found the photos and diagrams throughout the book to be very helpful.The author not only covers speeches but also presentations and devotes several chapters to the subject. For example in Chapter 4, "Organizing Your Presentation," Brody explains that persuasive presentations have three levels of persuasion: to motivate, to convince, and to call to action.I found Chapter 6, "Stage Fright & How to Control It," very interesting. Brody says that most speakers have four common fears: fear of fainting, fearing of boring your audience, fear of your mind going blank (this is my worst fear), and fear of being judged. For example she suggests that if your voice is shaky that you "project your voice to the back row of the audience."I felt that one weakness in Brody's book was that she went into too much detail in explaining speaking and presentation terminology. For the novice speaker and presenter as myself, I found the terminology sometimes hard to comprehend.Brody has authored or co-authored eight books including this one. She is the president of Brody Communications, Ltd., an international training corporation that focuses on helping people accelerate their careers, and a certified speaking professional. Overall, her latest book is worthwhile reading. -- From Independent Publisher

You'll find good advice by reading the "Meet the Pros" section, where 10 experts offer tips. -- Communication Briefings, September 1998
