It is of some importance, therefore, to those who take up this volume with open mind that they should see clearly at the out-start what is the thought that at once underlies and is builded through this structure. In plain words it is this: Training in public speaking is not a matter of externals—primarily; it is not a matter of imitation—fundamentally; it is not a matter of conformity to standards—at all. Public speaking is public utterance, public issuance, of the man himself; therefore the first thing both in time and in importance is that the man should be and think and feel things that are worthy of being given forth. Unless there be something of value within, no tricks of training can ever make of the talker anything more than a machine—albeit a highly perfected machine—for the delivery of other men's goods.

Review Text

  • By Ali Darwish on October 31, 2010

    The version I viewed on Amazon is not the same as the version I received today. This is a major disappointment. The version I received is unformatted and set in courier font, with no contrast between textual elements, headings etc. While the cover states that it is a High Quality Paperback version, it is no where near the quality it claims to be. The dense text, set in typewriter style, with page breaks all over the place (for example, headings are found at the bottom of pages and the body text that belongs to the heading is set on a different page), makes the book highly inaccessible. This renders 352 large pages of this book useless. The publisher has done this book a great injustice and Amazon has done its customers a great disservice by not advertising the correct version, especially when the difference between the older version advertised and the one sold is so great. It is quite surprising that in this day and age of high tech desktop publishing programs this book has been allowed to be published in this shabby and user-hostile format. It will take a real effort to wade through this jungle of text to make sense of the valuable information the author presented. Zero Rating!

    This book is the footing of formal public speaking teachings, as the author of the book Public Speaking A Simple How-to Guide on becoming a comfortable and confident public speaker, I must say everyone should read this book first, then try other books.

    There're barely any points to improve public speaking skills. Very little useful information hidden between the lines of a book about history, and history, and more history filled with historical characters and their lives. I don't really care what happened 20 centuries ago. I need to know how to make presentations NOW in this day and age. SOme history is important, but not to the point you go off the topic. It's hard to extract the basics for a typical public speech. It's hard to focus because the authors is beating around the bush all the time and puts me to sleep with a flood of remotely relevant cases in history going centuries back. Every few minutes, the question "So what's your point?!!" popped in my head. I gave up when I was half-way through. Tried to read the last chapter, but it was taking me to another history lesson. So annoying! Didn't learn anything specific that would help me with my presentations.

    A well written source for beginners and intermediate speakers - not necessarily for the somewhat advanced or professional speakers.

    "The Art Of Public Speaking" is a informative read and a timeless treasure.Building confidence and stepping out may take a push and this book has got the goods.I recommend this reading for anyone seeking a more personal people approach.The tips and tricks in the book definitely play into many areas of a life arena.
