Interesting and insightful, but also somewhat wordy
am 4. August 2016
I am a scientist and a professor and public speaking is a large part of my job. This book has re-confirmed some of what I have learnt before and gave me a few more new insights, too. Some of the advice is particularly relevant for popular science talks or sales talks, but not necessarily applicable to conference talks where the audience consists of other researchers and the presented material are scientific results (e.g., telling stories is one of these advices). The author uses many stories himself to explain the concepts. These stories are about other successful and popular TED speakers. While these stories illustrate the concepts and are often also quite entertaining, they also lengthen the book. Overall, I think the same material could have been presented in fewer pages.
