I knew that there were a lot of people that suffered from a fear of public speaking, but I didn’t know that it was actually 3 out of 4 people – or 75% of people that suffer from this.
A lot of the people who have written stories for this book, including the author, once had a fear of public speaking but were able to overcome it. I liked that this book is a compilation of stories from other people with this same fear and what they were able to do to overcome it and how many of them are now successful public speakers and get paid to do this!
There are a lot of great tips in this book and while I don’t think I will find myself needing to be a public speaker anytime soon, they are definitely things that I will keep in the back of my mind incase the need does arise because you just never know when your boss may want you to do a presentation!
If you, like me, also suffer from this fear then I think that you will benefit from this book. If nothing else, you will realize that you are not alone and there are more people who suffer from this than you think. And you’ll also learn that although there are a lot of people who have this fear – there are also many who have been able to overcome it – as shown by the stories in this book!
