What members say
It was difficult for me to understand
I was really hoping to get a lot out of this audio book as a professional speaker and teacher.
It was very hard for me to understand the logic of structuring the book in this way. I think it started with the WHY, and the importance of making a speech/delivering messages. There were about 10 or so examples, some famous people and some not so, with very detailed explanations. I think this was the first half of the book.
I was interested and looking to learn the “HOW” aspect. And during the second part of the book there were some technical aspects to it. I think it’s very good. Part on structure was a bit difficult to understand because it used a diagram.
I’m not through with the book yet but it’s a very difficult listen, I need to be patient and go through the book in double sp
