This is one of those helpful books that make us better both at work and at home. Although focused primarily on (professional) public speaking abilities it may also help us communicate more confidently and therefore more efficiently with our business partners and colleagues, guests on private parties, museum visitors, and tourist group members. The book is well structured, excellently written, easy readable - even for non-native English speakers! - and brimming with interesting observations, suggestions and instructions. You won't need, of course, 10 days to read the book. Quite the contrary: you'll read it within one day only, because it's short and interesting. Its best part, however, relates to its 'Day 5': 'Body Language and Voice' section is given in a very instructive way, so you can get its points immediately and implement the read directly.

I would say that '10 Days to More Confident Public Speaking' by Lenny Laskowski when combined with an another title - 'Persuasion: The Art of Influencing People' by James Borg - can be all professional literature you would really need in order to make yourself a better speaker, presenter and communicator.

The only reason that I didn't give the fifth star is a pretty poor quality of its paper. Any book is a physical product as well, isn't it?
this book has soooooo many tips you can learn form, but you must read it and study it... you also have to apply the principles

Very good book written by an excellent public speaker. Lenny outlines how to set up and deliver a speech in language which was very helpful to me.
It was in very good condition. It is a good book.
This book contains some basic public speaking instruction. And for my taste, some a little too "colorful" stories. I read this on a recommendation from a friend, disappointed in the book and in the friend for reccomending. This is an easy read and offers only a little less than a high school speech class might.
I would not recommend this book. Content seems a bit outdated. Not a good value for the price. Expensive and not helpful.
Some value for everyone. Half of the information is only appropriate for a professional speaker. I will not listen a second time.
10 Days to More Confident Public Speaking is a fascinating book. It has lots of tips that I have found are time-proven and trustworthy. Let me give you a chapter overview, so that you can see if it will fill the bill for you.
