A very nice book.

- Excellent Book

Although this book is old, it is a gold mine for those wanting to get better in public speaking. However, the trick here is to really practice what you are reading. Otherwise, there is no point in even listen/reading the book. I also think that doing the small exercises/questions is really effective in getting you to understand each section/chapter.
