Mention the words "public speaking" to any number of teenagers, and what you're likely to see is blind panic. When you become an adult, public speaking doesn't often get any easier. With SPEAK EASY at your side, though, the difficulty of speaking to a group of people can be lessened.

Although it's sometimes difficult to get over the fact that you'll have to stand up in front of a group of your peers and speak -- coherently, precisely, and as if you know what you're talking about, no less! -- there are tips and tricks that you can use to your advantage to make the event less terrifying. Barry Gibbons, the former chairman and CEO of Burger King, has had a lot of experience when it comes to public speaking, and he's put his knowledge into book form to use as a handy reference.

Filled with alternate ideas, exercises, and pointers to make public speaking less traumatic, this is a good guide for teens and adults who shudder at the very thought of becoming the object of attention during a speech. This is a book that is perfect for any speech class, drama or debate club, classroom library, or simply as a reference guide.
