Jerry Seinfeld: ‘According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two.
Does that seem right? That means to the average person, if you have to go to a funeral, you re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy!’
If what the American comedian says is true (and there are numerous polls to support his observation), millions of people would actually rather face death than speak in public. If you are one of those people, you have come to the right place for help!
If you are worried about public speaking, or downright terrified to give it a try, then this book is a must read. It s packed with simple to use strategies that can take the edge off and make you feel comfortable and confident in your speech.
—Dr. Topher Morrison, author of the best-selling book, Stop Chasing Perfection and Settle for Excellence
A splendid book surely provides all the tools you need to find your voice, overcome anxiety, and develop communication techniques to enthuse your audience. A special frog will make your journey to deal with stage fright or just enhance your ability to speak in public unfrogettable. A delightful and rich account of the science of speaking in public. Extremely effective, original and good for the muscles of the soul!
