Speaking Up! Oct 10, 2008
Speak up with Confidence is just what my instructor ordered for our Christian Rhetoric class. After reading this book you will be glad to speak in front of any audience because you will know how and what to speak on. Speaking is more than just getting up to the podium and talking. You have to know your audience, know how to capture them, keep them and give them something to chew on later. I enjoyed reading this book and strongly suggest it to speakers from all walks of life. A person doesn't have to be from Harvard or Yale to speak in front of others. This book is for the intelligent as well as the silly. Somewhere in this book you will be able to relate to Carol Kent. This is also a good book for Pastors and their ministers.
Packed With Knowledge! May 7, 2004
Jack Valenti's updated edition of this classic instructional text on public speaking includes all the name dropping and funny anecdotes you would expect from a man who spent his career behind the scenes in Washington, D.C., and Hollywood. Insisting that anyone can be an effective public speaker - and he clearly has heard the best and the worst - Valenti's watch word is "preparation." Although his writing is a bit repetitious and florid, and the information is basic, the book does what it promises: coaches the reader through the difficulties and details of composing and delivering an effective public presentation. If you drone on at a lectern while staring down at reams of notes, speak longer than your allotted time, have nightmares about the speech you gave that went wrong, count on momentary inspiration to carry you through important moments in the spotlight or don't know the first thing about giving a speech, we prescribe this book for your condition.
Carol Kent brings public speaking to an accessible skill. Feb 6, 1999
I read Carol's book before I met her at a retreat where she spoke. I can affirm that she is an exemplary speaker. She practices what she preaches. The book provided practical wisdom plus numorous asides on the art of communicating while still upholding the integrity of both the message and the message-giver. I've adapted many of her suggestions to my own speaking outreach.
