MY TOP BOOK RECOMMENDATION
This gem of a book seems to fly under the radar of texts on public speaking. Have you heard of Patrick Collins ? I hadn’t either. But this is one of the best books I have read on the subject of public (and other) speaking. It’s easy to read, and it’s packed full of real nuggets of useful information and tips. If you’re developing your library, or even if you want a greater starter book, this is the one I recommend.
