Say It Like Obama: The Power of Speaking with Purpose and Vision
By using uber-orator Obama as the example, the book cannot help but succeed. Feb 18, Vijai rated it it was amazing Shelves: learnt-a-lot. A very enriching experience about leadership more and less about oratory skills. There were seriously some pages in this book which made me want to just stand up and clap for this guy - the way he dealt with the controversy involving a certain pastor excuse my lack of religious accuracy , the way he dealt with a certain other politician, his speech amazingly honest about his upbringing and lineage - so much so that I am now convinced that in my view of all-star oratory masters, Mr.
Obama holds A very enriching experience about leadership more and less about oratory skills. Obama holds a very respectful number 2 position. Now, let me be very clear, I don't say that because I want to curry favor with anyone like that matters! And all that done with the finesse of master pianist's deft perfection of the notes. If that isn't the sign of an able orator displaying situational leadership tell me what is?
Shel Leanne has done an amazing job. Not with her content in this book besides that I mean but with her clear-cut vision of what she wanted to say and in what context. Simple, she is convinced that Mr. Obama is the zen master of public speaking and passes that conviction on to us with irrefutable evidence. Worth a read if not a definite reference material on how to be awesome in public speaking.

I've done so on this occasion because I think the author delivered on her promise based on the book's title and premise.

Say it like Obama and Win: The Power of Speaking with Purpose and Vision
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.

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.

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.
Make Your Speech All about the Audience
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.
