A classic book from a recognized master on the topic. A good read and foundational material for anyone looking at public speaking as a career. I bought this book at special price from here:

لتصبح خطيبا ً جيدا ً أمام الجمهور و لتحصل على ذلك بسرعة و فعالية هناك 4 أشياء ضرورية :-
أولا ً : - أبدأ برغبة قوية
ثانيا ً :- إعرف تمامًا ما الذي ستتحدث بشأنة .
ثالثا ً :- تصرف بثقة .
( قف مٌستقيما ً و تطلع في عيون الجمهور أبدأ بالكلام بثقة و كأن الجميع يدينون لك بالمال تخيل أنك كذالك
تخيل أنهم تجمعوا ليتوسلوا تمديد مدة الدفع . فالتأثير النفسي الناتج عن ذلك سيكون مفيدا ً )
رابعًا :- تدرب , تدرب , تدرب !

As other Dale Carnegie' books, this book lays out important principles for effective public speaking. I have been trying to apply his suggestions in my talks and I find them very helpful.

A few notes:
- Be genuine interested in the audience: when preparing and giving a talk, I constantly remind myself to appreciate the audience who spend their time (and perhaps money) to listen to me. If the talk is 20 minutes and there are 30 of them, that's already 10 hours so I am responsible for not wasting su

فَن الخطابة لـِ ديل كارنجي

كتاب لطيف و مسلي , يتحدث عن النقاط الرئيسية التي يمكن أن تجعل من الخطاب ناجحاً , ويحذر من تصرفات بعض
المحاضرين التي قد تجعل من يستمعون إلى الخطاب يتوقون لانتهائه .

هو تجربتي الثانية مع ديل كارنيجي وقد استمعت إليه ككتاب صوتي

حتى في الحديث اليومي مع الناس

ولمن يريد إلقاء خطبة أو قصيدة

مهارات للتأثير في الناس


طريقة القاء الكلام تؤثر في الناس أكثر من الكلام نفسه


********** بعض الأسرار **********



-شدد على الكلمات المهمة و أخفض الغير مهمة .

-كن إنسانا,تحدث بأسلوبك.

-كن طبيعيا ، وابتسم أثناء التحدث .

-غيّر طبقات صوتك.فهي متموجة.
لا تتحدث أبدا بنبرة صوت واحدة وثابته حتي لا تدفع من يسمعك للملل

-غيّر معدل سرعة صوتك.

-توقف قبل و بعد الأفكار المهمة.

-أنظر إلى أحد الحاضرين من الخلف مثلا و تحدث معه و كأنه لا يوجد غيره في القاعة.


-لا تأكل وجب

يقول الفوهرر النازي أدولف هتلر: إن معظم الكلمات التي غيّرت عالمنا لم تُحدثها الكلمة المكتوبة بل الكلمة المنطوقة. وهذا صحيح قطعاً، فلم يكن لهذا السفاح الذي أباد الملايين آلاف الأتباع الذين كانوا يأتمرون بأمره بدون أي اعتراض لو أنه كان يرسل إليهم الكتب والبرقيّات!!

بل إن كلماته المنطوقة، وخطاباته الحماسيّة هي التي ألهبت في نفوسهم الرغبة الجامحة في الطاعة المطلقة له.

وهنا تبرز أهميّة كتاب ديل كارنيجي فنّ الخطابة. الكتاب سيعلمك كيف تقف أمام الناس وتتخلص من التشتت والرهاب الذي يُقال أن معظم البشر يخافو

لا أحب الكتب المليئة بالحشو، إذ إن الأفكار المفيدة في الكتاب يمكن تلخيصها في خمس أو ست صفحات فقط
ثم إني أقترح على المؤلف تغيير اسم الكتاب إلى "فن الخطابة عند الرئيس لينكون" ؛

Most everything in this book is a review of what you learn in college speech class- though these methods are common sense to some of us, this would be a good book for someone who really just needs LOTS of practice. MANY speeches are offered in this book with tips on how to best recite them, but it's really more of a workbook than an informative read. I lost interest many times b/c it was just review information and long winded speeches and poetry from other authors given as examples for the read ...more

I listened to this book through an audio book version. It's filled with many quotes and speeches that can last as long as fifteen minutes or more. This can be both distracting and rather boring causing you to miss key information on the art of public speaking. Although, some of these quotes and speeches do help in identifying important information in public speaking. After you get over these flaws, the book is filled with many devices that will help you stand up in front of many and speak confid ...more

ابراهام لينكولن بخطابه لإنهاء الحرب الأهلية (البيت المنقسم على نفسه لا يمكنه أن ينهض) ومارتن لوثر كينغ لإنهاء التمييز العنصري بخطابه (عندي حلم) وخطابات عمر المختار وأحمد ديدات ونيسلسون مانديلا وغاندي وكتير عباقرة غيروا مجرى الأحداث وقدروا يقنعوا الجمهور بأفكارون, الخطاب ومواجهة الجمهور بيحتاج أسلوب ومقدمة رائعة وخاتمة مؤثرة وأسلوب جذب ولغة متينة, هيك شي لازم يتم تدريسه بالمدارس بدل كتير مواد سخيفة. التعمّق بيخلينا نكتشف أنه فن الخطابة هوة من أكتر ما نحتاج هي الفترة.

يقول الكاتب في ص٨٤ " عندما تجد نفسك تتحدث بطبقة رتيبة ، توقف قليلاً وقل في نفسك : أنا أتكلم كالهندي الأخرق . كن إنساناً كن طبيعياً "

كان كتاباً رائعاً إلى أن وصلت لهذة الجملة المقززة ، هندي اخرق .. كن انساناً !!!! أوليس الهندي إنسان يا صاحب التفكير الحيواني ؟! أي ثقافة تتحدث عنها وانتَ بهذة العنصرية البشعة !!!! كن انتَ انساناً اولاً !!!! لماذا لا تكون انتَ الاخرق بهذه العبارة وهذا التفكير العنصري ؟ ..

I wish I could say that this was a great book. But it was sooooooo boring. The only reason I have to give it three stars is that it was genuinely a very educational book that I'm certain benefited me. Other than that, yeah . . . I wouldn't recommend this for anyone's fun reading. This is definitely for people who perform public speaking and no others.

This book will teach you everything you need to know about public speaking but also about influencing and persuading people in everyday life.
Everyone can do with what this book teaches because sooner or later we all need to learn the art of persuasion. And this book teaches you how.

Very nice.
I read the book from the perspective of a listener, and not someone who intends to speak.
That way i can know what to look for when i listen to a speaker

This is the type of book you get back to. It is in a class of its own, it broads your views and each chapter focuses on specific aspect that may inspire you to further research the topic. I would recommend it to anyone in need to hold public speeches, but also it can help you in daily conversations with people. I found the summary in bullet points at the end of each chapter enjoyable and helpful. In one sentence: a supreme book that was never boring.

Khá có ích. Mình nhận ra được sự quan trọng của phần mở đầu, kết thúc bài nói, cách sử dụng ngôn từ, cách xây dựng sự tự tin, phát triển bài nói, cách diễn thuyết sao cho thật hiệu quả. Nhưng có lẽ để thấm hơn nữa thì phải đọc lại lần 2, lần 3.

This is the first time that im reading about Public Speaking and will say that this book, despite that is old, is fantastic. It breaks down Public speaking to specific items that anyone could practise and gives a lot of advice, tips on how to do it.

If you are interested on the free audio book version, can be found here:

For sure, will be reading more about the subject and also hear this book again, especially the first 10 chapters.

Dale Breckenridge Carnegie (originally Carnagey until 1922 and possibly somewhat later) (November 24, 1888 – November 1, 1955) was an American writer and lecturer and the developer of famous courses in self-improvement, salesmanship, corporate training, public speaking and interpersonal skills.

More about Dale Carnegie...
“Students of public speaking continually ask, "How can I overcome
self-consciousness and the fear that paralyzes me before an
audience?"
Did you ever notice in looking from a train window that some
horses feed near the track and never even pause to look up at the
thundering cars, while just ahead at the next railroad crossing a
farmer's wife will be nervously trying to quiet her scared horse as
the train goes by?
How would you cure a horse that is afraid of cars—graze him in a
back-woods lot where he would never see steam-engines or
automobiles, or drive or pasture him where he would frequently see
the machines?
Apply horse-sense to ridding yourself of self-consciousness and
fear: face an audience as frequently as you can, and you will soon stop shying. You can never attain
freedom from stage-fright by reading a treatise. A book may give
you excellent suggestions on how best to conduct yourself in the
water, but sooner or later you must get wet, perhaps even strangle
and be "half scared to death." There are a great many "wetless"
bathing suits worn at the seashore, but no one ever learns to swim
in them. To plunge is the only way.”
