But, with the skilled help of TJ Walker, they won’t be for long!
In his new, user-friendly book, How to Give a Pretty Good Presentation: A Speaking Survival Guide for the Rest of Us (Wiley, August 2010, 978-0-470-59714-9, $19.95), author TJ Walker, leading authority on media and presentation training in the world, creates a survival guide for “real people” who have to give presentations in the professional or academic arena. This basic, entertaining resource does not focus on transforming one into an exceptional, standing-ovation speaker, but proposes a fool-proof, effective guide to giving a presentation, (without the unnecessary nervousness), that “gets the job done.”
