Fantastic book. On a completely different level than anything else I’ve ever read on the subject of speaking. I highly recommend this amazingly insightful and intelligent book to anyone who speaks publicly. Paraphrasing from the book: When you speak, you might see yourself as the hero. But to deliver a successful presentation that inspires and leads to action, you have to realize your audience is the hero.”
