I’d Rather Die. Public Speaking Survival Skills. Robert Scanlon. 2015. ISBN 0994409206. You can always learn something new. I have been confidently public speaking for 50 years and innumerable time. I have been told I am quite a good, interesting speaker. After reading this book I am better prepared to put my public speaking up onto a completely different level. This is the soup to nuts, one book to do it all, concise bible on public speaking. My take aways are so many and yet everything he says fits so well with all I have learned and studied over the years ( We seem to have read most of the same books and used similar videos) . I recommend this book to anyone who has to speak to any group. If you use this book , you will be doing your audience an incredible favor and saving them from “just another ” presentation.
