    Description

    Ever wish you could captivate your boardroom with the opening line of your presentation, like Winston Churchill in his most memorable speeches? Or want to command attention by looming larger than life before your audience, much like Abraham Lincoln when, standing erect and wearing a top hat, he towered over seven feet? Now, you can master presentation skills, wow your audience, and shoot up the corporate ladder by unlocking the secrets of history's greatest speakers.

    Author, historian, and world-renowned speaker James C. Humes - who wrote speeches for five American presidents - explains how great leaders through the ages used simple yet incredibly effective tricks to speak, persuade, and win throngs of fans and followers.

    In this book, you'll discover how Napoleon Bonaparte mastered the use of the pregnant pause to grab attention, how Lady Margaret Thatcher punctuated her most serious speeches with the use of subtle props, how Ronald Reagan could win even the most hostile crowd with carefully timed wit, and much, much more. Whether you're addressing a small nation or a large staff meeting, you'll want to master the tips and tricks in Speak Like Churchill, Stand Like Lincoln.

    WHAT SPEAKING IS ALL ABOUT

    I've heard about a dozen books on speaking and this work contains the best advice I've ever heard. Mr. Humes draws on his decades of experience of writing speeches for Presidents to cut through the little mechanical details where most books get bogged down and hit the essence of audience reaction.

    21 points are probably more than can be memorized. Don't worry about that; you won't use all those points. You'll likely use more than 10 of Humes' secrets depending on the type of speaking required in your engagements. But any 5 points will more than justify the time it takes to wade through the other ones.

    Whether you speak to a small team or an arena, don't skip this book.

    Almost Intolerable

    I listened at regular speed for about the first hour, then put it at 1.5X until it ended. For too long, my head-talk dialog was pleading for mercy. The redundancies flaunt the message of the book. Its patronizing, self-absorbed tone gets in the way of the message throughout. This is a communication book where you have to fight too hard to get to the gems. Verdict: not worth the time. Just watch a couple Nancy Duarte clips and great Ted talks on YouTube.

    A complete guide for speaker and leaders

    It's a long book, but it is enjoyable and full of practical knowledge for anyone who gives speeches, leads teams, presents in front of large audiences, is a spokesperson or is a master of ceremonies.

    Every key point in the book is illustrated with plenty of examples from recognized leaders. You may have heard about some of these skills before, but you will surely learn a trick or two that will make worth your investment (time and money) in this book.

    A must read in my book...

    I love this book! As a teacher and presenter I'm always looking for information on improving my skills. This book absolutely does that. Mr. Hume covers all the aspects of a presentation the pause, the stand, the prop, the voice… and uses historical characters like Lincoln and Churchill for examples of where these became very effective.

    I have recommended this book to several of my colleagues, this book is that good.

    Great Book!

    Where does Speak Like Churchill, Stand Like Lincoln rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    By for the best speaking book that I have ever read.

    What other book might you compare Speak Like Churchill, Stand Like Lincoln to and why?

    I really enjoyed the examples and stories that were used.

    What does Norman Dietz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed the different voices that were used. Very good expression.

    Intriguing historical approach

    The book goes through details of speaking from opening to ending. What I enjoyed most was the ideas, supporting facts, and real stories from famous speakers to illustrate the point. The reader will not only learn about speaking but gain quotes that are entertaining as well as meaningful. The reader will also learn lots of great historical facts that would make great trivia questions.

    The book is well written and researched. It is easy to read and delivers practical advice for speakers. Humes also shows how to apply the master tips and tricks to your own speeches. The author suggests buying a rhyming dictionary and keep it handy when writing a speech. The book is highly entertaining.

    Norman Dietz does a good job narrating the book. Dietz is an actor and award winning narrator.

    Presentation Gold!

    Unlike some of the other reviews I've read.....I actually enjoyed the speakers voice!

    The authors narratives gave the book an additional depth that I found highly entertaining. If you enjoy history there are a lot of fascinating first hand accounts and historical anecdotes in this book. It is very republican party biased however the techniques and tips given in the audio book are priceless and overshadow the conservative undertones. i.e power pause, props etc...

    I was able to use a few of the techniques in a speech I gave a week after buying the audio book. After I finished someone in the audience said it was amazing how I had their full attention without speaking a word! i.e power pause.

    Helpful, moderately interesting, but dated

    There is lots of good information here, especially for people who want to be better speakers and don't know where to start.

    I have two issues with this otherwise excellent audiobook. First, it sounds dated and the language is dated. Second, and related to the first was how it recommends using archaic, big words to impress the listener and make a statement.

    I disagree. What good is using big archaic words if no one understands what it means?

    Nitpicking aside, most of what is here is good advice.

    Excellent book

    This has excellent references on improving public speech. I would highly recommend it for anyone starting out in giving presentations to large groups.

    a chore to read

    as a full disclosure, I am only five chapters into this, but I can already tell it's going to be a chore to listen to this. I'm not sure if I can finish this.

    for an advice book that seems to be centered on the merits of simplicity and brevity, it is full of redundancy, pointless anecdotes, and overall rambling monologue.

    I think the points of this book could have been simplified into a page per point and would have been more effective -- especially to illustrate the very points the author makes.

    I am not sure what I was expecting -- maybe something more of an analysis of Churchill's and Lincoln's speaking style and an elaboration on how it's effective but that's not what you get... you get just one little shaggy dog story after another to illustrate one point. it's like a cheap knockoff of How to Make Friends and Influence people.
