Professional Book Review for Purpose Driven Public Speaking

New Review!

=====================

Dr. Gary Rodriguez’ Purpose Driven Public Speaking offers advice regarding How to

Develop and Deliver Purposeful Talks, Speeches, and Presentations with Less Fear and

More Confidence.

Purpose Driven Public Speaking is a work of some ten chapters offered as nearly 200

pages. Included within the covers are Preface, Foreword, Introduction, Final Thoughts,

Appendix and Resources in addition to the chapter work.

Dr. Rodriguez notes, ‘This book, which is directed to active and aspiring speakers,

teaches one how to build a purpose driven presentation from start to finish.’ He goes

on to state the goal intended is to provide readers with a verified, workable, organized

approach for speaking which is intended to facilitate both novice as well as veteran

speakers toward development and delivery of focused talks that bring into being a

preferred outcome.

Chapter 1 entitled Courage Under Fire sets the tone for those wrestling with fear of

speaking before groups. Dr. Rodriguez notes that generally, speaking in public is not

hazardous to your health. He notes several well known exceptions from history; Christ

and Dr Martin Luther King who were killed, but whose messages continue to inspire.

Chapter 2 addresses the vital questions regarding to whom the speaker is addressing,

how much time is available for the speech, what subject is to be addressed and what

the desired outcome is.

Chapter 3 leads the reader toward understanding how to identify the subject, while

Chapter 4 suggests beginning at the end.

Chapter 5 was one that I found particularly edifying. Dr. Rodriguez suggests hiding the

structure and suggests various methods for preparing for the speech. Included are

manuscript method, outline method, keyword outline method and the importance of

practice as well as movement method.

Chapter 6 and the Ninety Second Rule introduces four essentials including how to

capture audience attention, how to surface a need in the listener, how to identify the

subject and pointing to the desired outcome. How to prepare a ten minute talk on any

subject is filled with excellent suggestions.

I enjoyed Chapter 7 as Dr. Rodriguez illustrates Pointed as vs Pointless Illustrations.

Chapter 8 and the strong finish helped to round out the learning to be gained.

Chapters 9 and 10 offer a model of a purpose driven talk and presentation tips.

All in all I found Dr. Rodriguez’ purpose driven Public Speaking to be very informative,

highly readable and filled with much to pique the interest. Despite my having been in

the classroom for many years; I found much to consider as I contemplate future

speaking I may find myself undertaking.

I found Purpose Driven Public Speaking aids development as a successful speaker by

showing workable, lucid methods for dealing with natural nervousness and qualms

associated with speaking in public. Straightforward, frank information augmented by

first-rate personal anecdotes and intriguing graphics kept me reading as I gleaned

more information regarding how to ready and bring off focused discussion,

presentations, and dialogue that lead to hoped for, planned results.

The purpose driven approach for public speaking preparation provides speakers a

determined objective to aid as the speaker begins to line up each of the elements of

the talk. I found this insight into public speaking to be stimulating, intriguing and

perceptive. From hiding the structure of the talk itself to the 4 vital questions to

creating a purposeful talk with a strong introduction, pointed illustrations and action

oriented conclusion as well as discussion of pointed as opposed to pointless

illustrations; I found Purpose Driven Public Speaking to be a dandy book sure to

facilitate critical thinking skills for those aiming to produce a focused, sensible and

dynamic talk.

Whether novice speaker or veteran, occasional or regular speaker; Purpose Driven

Public Speaking offers a firm basis regarding fundamentals of public speaking for those

who find themselves speaking in public now and again as well as being a useful and

supportive energizer for those that may find themselves speaking to an assembly on a

regular basis.

On the pages of Purpose Driven Public Speaking, Gary Rodriguez helps remove much

of the dread many harbor regarding public speaking. Rodriguez calls upon his years of

speaking experience to provide a dandy plan of action for guiding the reader toward

becoming a focused, unafraid, well prepared public speaker. Written with kindliness

and filled with wittiness, excellent concepts and principles; Purpose Driven Public

Speaking is informative, heartening, edifying and revitalizing.

Happy to recommend Dr. Gary Rodriguez’ Purpose Driven Public Speaking How to

Develop and Deliver Purposeful Talks, Speeches, and Presentations with Less Fear and

More Confidence.

I do not keep all books I receive for review, Dr. Rodriguez’ Purpose Driven Public

Speaking is one such edition that I will be adding to my own library shelf.
