I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Scott Berkun does an excellent job of analyzing the factors that make public speaking so intimidating, and provides practical advice for the essentials such as preparation, delivery, and what to do when things "go wrong". It's a great read for those (like me) who suffer from social anxiety. I've always been deathly afraid of being the center of attention, but I don't have to let that fear be a blocker. I know I have the potential to be an adequate speaker, no matter how much my anxieties tell me otherwise. When the time comes for me to speak again (eeek), I'll be armed with my secret weapon -- this book!
