Rated 5 out of 5 by from He knows his stuff Although I havn't read this book, I had the pleasure of attending a lecture Mr. MacInnis gave on public speaking. He has brought public speaking down to an exact science. He is definitely qualified to write a book upon this topic, and I would reccomend this book (which was the lecture in a nutshell) to anyone wanting to become a great public speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read for anyone who speaks in public. As an accomplished public speaker, I did not think that I had much more to learn about public speaking. I was wrong. Lyman MacInnis' book contains concise chapters covering all aspects of public speaking. It is a must read for anyone who already speaks in public or for anyone contemplating doing the same.
