Fundamentals of Public Speaking
This book mostly glances over the fundamentals of public speaking. There is good coverage of topics such as eye contact and speech organization, but there is not much time spent on gestures and overcoming fear.
This book is highly focused towards improving the public speaking skills of the business professional. Present Like a Pro skips basic speaking fundamentals and instead delves deeply into topics such as mastering audience interaction and how to properly use a microphone.
For speakers that have presented in public before and want to take their skills the next level, this book can help.
This is one of the better books on business presenting out there. It doesn’t waste time on beginning topics and goes deep into the core of subjects such as relating to the client and projecting the right image.
