What are you afraid of? Spiders? Small spaces? Heights? For many, our biggest fear, more fearful than jumping off a building or out of a plane, is public speaking. But why? Why is public speaking such a terrifying thing? As you’ll find out, speaking in front of strangers is an art that requires practice. Many teachers begin teaching public speaking on how to speak publicly. They study voice, gesture, and the rest but this approach is futile. Instead, the best way to improve is to just do it. In fact, "it is an ancient truism that we learn to do by doing." Once you have begun speaking, you can then improve by observing your speeches, fixing the mistakes, and listening to constructive criticism. So take the plunge and the rest will fall into place, you’ll be a master speech in no time. Of course, it’ll take lots of practice, but you’ll learn the tips and tricks from author Dale Carnegie to make the most of your practice. You’ll learn everything, including how to overcome your stage fright to the importance of arranging your audience. So if you're ready to take the plunge, let’s begin.

Why does your mouth suddenly go dry, your throat tighten, your face get hot, and your knees buckle when you have to address a group of people? The old story goes that more people are afraid of public speaking than they are of death. So people at a funeral would prefer to be the person in the casket than the person delivering the eulogy! Shut up and speak means that you must stop dwelling on how difficult or frightening public speaking is. Shut up and speak means that you can't become a better public speaker simply by studying communications theory or relying on public speaking folk wisdom. This book gives you the guidance to "shut up" by tuning out all of the interference that doesn't help you become a better public speaker and to "speak" by throwing yourself whole-heartedly into speech-making.

We all can agree that being a good public speaker is an attribute. Great leaders, prominent business people and others we admire, are known for their ability to communicate. Public speaking is a key skill whether you want to stand up as a leader, become more competent at work, or just improve your day-to-day communication. Some are born with the natural gift of being an excellent public speaker. Others have developed it over the years. Regardless of where you are on your public speaking journey, you can always improve and hone this ability. Our communication is one way people size us up or judge us. Whether you agree with it or not, It is used as a gauge at work and in social settings to determine where we stand. Being a better communicator will help you climb both the work and social ladders. Sometimes being a good communicator is mistaken with being knowledgeable. We all know of countless examples of good communicators being successful despite their lack of knowledge or hard work. I will admit, as I improved my public speaking and communication skills, I was the beneficiary of being seen as more competent in a management role than I actually was. Just imagine if you were able to be a better public speaker or communicator. By pairing this communication skill with your knowledge and hard work ethic, there is no limit to where you will end up both professionally and personally. I can’t even count how many successful presentations, speeches, sales pitches and social engagements I have been a part of. More importantly, I have taught and helped numerous students and clients become better public speakers. These speakers have gone on to be better salespeople, move up their corporate ladder and become more likeable in their social circles. Some have even made it so far down the path, that they are now true masters of public speaking. This book is a collection of the strategies and tactics that I share with them. This is your opportunity to take a crash course on becoming a master public speaker. Just think of the impact that we could have. Good public speakers can empower, encourage and persuade entire crowds with just one speech. At work, you can motivate your team, land that big sale or project as well as talk your way into a promotion. Have you ever overheard someone having a conversation at a restaurant or other public setting and their simple conversation sounded like an authentic yet well rehearsed speech? Look at how others admire orators like that. There is no reason that you can’t excel in the same way. I am sure we agree that the above points are important, but why do we really need to improve our public speaking skills? The possible benefits are powerful and endless. Imagine having an improved sense of self-esteem. Picture yourself having better communication and leadership skills. You can have more friends and a larger professional network. Your personal satisfaction will go through the roof. This isn’t a scam. It’s a promise. Just work on the skills in this book, get out there and get exposure.
