"This is the book that helped me most as a professional speaker." - Bob Richards
Book Review by Phil Tornabene
Personal growth always means increased production, but increased production does not always mean personal growth. Through being deeply involved in direct sales all of my working life, I was exposed to the benefits of reading good books. Like everyone else, I guess I was looking the Ã¢â‚¬oerightÃ¢â‚¬Â formula which would help me sell more. It was through this activity that I found the opening statement to be true.
It is funny how things happen in your life. I read Dale Carnegie's book How to Develop Self Confidence and Influence People by Public Speaking, when I was 19, and I did not realize how much it helped me until maybe 20 years later. The whole area of public speaking was of tremendous assistance in many situations other than speaking in public. For example: Because of the poise and self-confidence one gains, it was immediately useful to me for the following: (1) Job interviews; (2) Sales situations; (3) Negotiating a contract; and at times, (4) Talking to a policeman about a speeding ticket.
Everything we do, whether business or personal, involves relating to others. We never get a second chance to make a good first impression. So, for me, the art outlined in this book is of paramount importance.
