Confessions Of A Public Speaker

At FOSDEM, I was given a copy of “Confessions of a Public Speaker” by Scott Berkun (thanks, Josette!).

It’s an story-filled ramble through the life of someone who talks for a living. It was an entertaining read, although it could perhaps have done with more summarizing of the material, as when I reached the end I realised that I would have to re-read it if I wanted to make a list of things to change about my own speaking style and habits. But I was very pleased to see him call the Logitech Cordless Presenter, which I own[0], “the Cadillac of remote controls”. The man has good taste.

Oh, and there’s a story from me in the “You can’t do worse than this” section :-)

[0] OK, OK. On gandalf’s recommendation.
