I think it probably helps if you are an Obama fan to be able to get through that many speeches by him and praise of him.

I'm personally too apolitical to be moved by any politician though I am obviously impressed enough by his ability to deliver speeches to get this book. Oct 05, E rated it really liked it. But how exactly does he do it? The book is practical and readable, although repetitive, and it would have been even more useful had the designer set off the speech excerpts more clearly from the rest of the text. Even if you never become president of the U. Shelves: business , leadership , public-speaking , self-help. Speak powerfully to persuade audiences to support your point of view.
This book starts with an annotated transcript of one of Obama's early speeches. From there it expounds on the oratorical techniques Obama uses to communicate powerfully and win every audience he speaks to. The best thing about this book is not just that the tips are practical, but simply by reading it and thinking about your next public speaking gig, you'll be transformed into a better speaker.
I know because I gave a short talk Speak powerfully to persuade audiences to support your point of view. I know because I gave a short talk midway through reading the book and my speech had a structure missing from other talks I've given and it elicited a strong response from the audience.
I recommend it to every leader, business person or anyone who wants to win people over. Jul 28, David Giannetto rated it really liked it. Overall very good with nicely explained examples.
Of course it is pro-Obama but never gets into anything political. It is a bit of a stretch for business or motivational speakers but if you're looking for a different perspective to give you new ideas it is a great read for that. It does overlook the fact that he has an army of speech writers at his disposal, and it would have been nice if they were acknowledged along with his great techniques.
Much of what he is given credit for is actually clev Overall very good with nicely explained examples. Much of what he is given credit for is actually clever speech writing that is then delivered by an exceptional speaker. I got this book as a birthday gift and very grateful to have it as I am in the learning phase of doing public speaking.
The author, Shelly Leanne, was able to picturized every movement, body gesture, stressing words of Obama as well as the connection with Communication Theory. You will be able to picture well in your mind as you read through this book.

It is well recommended book to read and keep it. Dec 27, Debbie rated it it was ok. I was intrigued by the premise of this book and had high expectations, but overall I found it rather disappointing. There certainly were some interesting nuggets of useful information, but I think it was too politically-oriented. Perhaps I should have anticipated that. However, I expected more insight into President Obama as a gifted speaker rather than as a politician. That's not to say I didn't find anything of value. I did, but just not as much as I would have liked.
Dec 26, Kim rated it it was amazing. As a communication strategist myself, I found this book to be insightful. It illustrates how to speak with a purpose; how to phrases ideas, when to intonate your words and use effective gestures, etc. Not only is this an excellent general reading book, but an excellent tool for those who are public speakers.
It is also a good book for high schoolers on the debate team or any leadership position. Sep 05, Narelle Todd rated it it was amazing Shelves: public-speaking. Presentations, speeches and talks that move me to action and take me on a journey with the speaker is a gift. Orators such as Obama take a speech which is masterfully written and then add their own snap to it and I found this book interesting to actually look at how that process works and how I can adopt the same sense of vision when I present. Una lectura para una asignatura de clase. This is about the art of speech of Barrack Obama.
But I think it can be used for the smaller relation too,ex:conversation One point I like from this book is about the actual condition in American people,,specifically about healthy service,education,tax,people who lose their houses,and the worker in American country who lose their jobs because it's moved to China! Jun 15, Reem rated it really liked it. Its the first time I've read a complete book on self improvement, I usually stop at the first 50 pages or so.
But here, I kept on reading, the book was so gratifying and interesting with all the quotes of Obama's legendary speeches. Great book and very helpful. Thanks Leanne. Jan 09, Amani rated it really liked it. If you are aiming to be a political leader, this book will help you in you public speeches.
