The Art of Public Speaking by Dale Carnegie with J.B. Esenwein – Book Summary

Learn how to become a confident, effective speaker. What are you afraid of? Spiders? Small spaces? Heights? For many, our biggest fear, more fearful than jumping off a building or out of a plane, is public speaking. But why? Why is public speaking such a terrifying thing? As you’ll find out, speaking in front of strangers is an art that requires practice. Many teachers begin teaching public speaking on how to speak publicly. They study voice, gesture, and the rest but this approach is futile. Instead, the best way to improve is to just do it. In fact, “it is an ancient truism that we learn to do by doing.” Once you have begun speaking, you can then improve by observing your speeches, fixing the mistakes, and listening to constructive criticism. So take the plunge and the rest will fall into place, you’ll be a master speech in no time. Of course, it’ll take lots of practice, but you’ll learn the tips and tricks from author Dale Carnegie to make the most of your practice. You’ll learn everything, including how to overcome your stage fright to the importance of arranging your audience. So if you’re ready to take the plunge, let’s begin.
