I cannot recommend this book enough! Scott Berkum is super clever and funny. He takes what can be a pretty dry subject and adds humor and super practical takeaways.
Reading this book calmed so many nerves I had. He really has a way of serving the reader the bigger picture. Public speaking is, in most cases, not the end of the world. I was sold on this book by page 12, in which Berkum writes:
“When thinking about fun things like death, bad surveys, and public speaking, the best place to start is with the realization that [no one] has died from giving a bad presentation. Well, at least one person did, President William Henry Harrison, but he developed pneumonia after giving the longest inaugural address in the U.S. history. The easy lesson from his story: keep it short, or you might die.”
The book just gets better and better from there. Cat approved!
Available on Amazon.
