Today I'm bringing you a very different kind of read from my normal every day read. When I received this in the mail I honestly wasn't very interested in it, I mean, I don't read this genre, so I wasn't even sure why it was sent to me but, curiosity got the better of me and I started to flip through it.

I have to say, I found this really interesting. There were cute little illustrations that went along with the writing and overall, this was kind of a fun read and very much informative. I think fo

A great book offering superb advice for constructing and delivering speeches of any description. It's a short book that can be read within a couple of hours and for the quality of advice you receive that is an exceptional investment in time.
The book is a great source of inspiration providing effective ideas, solid principles and, as its name suggests, useful methodologies for delivering content. I was able to utilise the advice in this book immediately and have already seen very positive results

توجيهات وأفكار تأخذ بيدك لتقوِّي من قدرتك على مواجهة الجمهور والآخر، الرسوم التوضيحية ممتعة وظريفة جدًا.
لكن طابع الكتاب التجاري والاقتباسات التقليدية والمستهلكة استفزوني.
أفضل جزئية بالنسبة لي:
"Basically there are two ways of facing risk, One is to worry like hell, and dwell on Murphy's Law (that anything that can go wrong will go wrong).
The other is to recognize and embrace the risk, confident in your ability to rise to the occasion."

very nicely written and illustrated... made me feel like I'm watching a movie rather than reading a book. I'm inspired... so thanks :)

Not What but How You Say It

DO not judge this book by its size. It may be compact and be filled with text set in big fonts, but this is more like a tips and tools type of book.

Mr Michael Parker is one of the United Kingdom’s most experienced pitch coaches, having worked for over 20 years with Saatchi & Saatchi. The man knows what he is talking about. He has created an easy-to-digest guide for anyone who is about to make a pitch, do a presentation, or ev

Michael Parker's book is a quick read but a valuable one for anyone who needs to use words to communicate and influence--so basically, all of us.

In a short book with lots of fun images, he teaches us the basics of figuring out how to communicate effectively, prepare for it, and present it well so that we get the outcomes we want.

A few major takeaways:
1. we're always presenting and presentation always requires preparation and practice;
2. if done right, taking deep breaths and pausing actually

Buku yg selain menginspirasi juga mengajarkan pembaca bagaimana cara berbicara dengan baik di depan audiens: baik itu pidato di depan banyak orang ataupun berbicara kepada calon bapak mertua.

Poin-poin yg disampaikan sangat singkat dan tepat, namun tetap dapat dipraktekkan dan tidak mengawang-awang.

Buku yg sangat disarankan bagi mahasiswa yg sedang menyelesaikan skripsi/thesis dan hendak sidang

I got this book in a flea-market in downtown Kuala Lumpur.
It's a good book for a content-minded person (like me).
