As Jerry Seinfeld says, "According to most studies, people's number one
fear is public speaking. Number two is death. That means to the average
person, if you have to go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket
than doing the eulogy." If you are confident in your words and writing,
you may still have butterflies (or wish you were in a casket) but the
overall delivery will become that much easier.
This book will help you overcome the feeling of intimidation and make
you a stronger, more confident, writer and speaker. It will help you
write in a more focused manner and will help you effectively structure
your written communication when writing speeches and presentations.
