"More than just getting the words out correctly, good public speaking is understanding your message, your audience, and doing the hard work of preparing and rehearsing an effective speech. In this audio, Valenti is an imposing figure--a magnetic and deeply knowledgeable teacher. He also has a taut and authoritative speaking rhythm that's hard to ignore. An astute and wry observer of human nature, he is delightful when talking about historical figures or his own experiences with political and business celebrities. Best of all, his speaking principles and tips are very clear and will be useful to a broad range of speakers or presenters. An entertaining lesson on the art of speaking well from a towering speaking talent. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
