Before you dive into my Top 10 posts from 2010, here is another valuable gift. For years people have asked me, “What are you favorite books?” I always answer with, “In what subject?”

Common Costly Mistake for Speakers?

Often speakers think that the way to get better at speaking is simply to focus on speaking. I disagree. I believe there are 4 major topic areas that will make you a better speaker if you study them. They are…

  1. Speaking – Because it’s good to see what speakers can teach you from their experience
  2. Marketing – Because studying this art and science will automatically make you more persuasive
  3. Influence/Sales –  Because studying these crafts will help you become very profitable as a speaker
  4. Personal Growth – Because the more you work on yourself, the greater your impact will be on others. You can’t give what you don’t have.

As a result, I decided to do create where you can access the books that changed my life as a speaker and can change yours too. It’s divided into the 4 topic areas above and shows you my 9 favorite books from each topic. I hope they do as much for you as they continue to do for me.
