About this Episode

Public speaking can be terrifying. For David Nihill, the idea of standing in front of an audience was scarier than cliff jumping into a thorny pit of spiders and mothers-in-law. Without a parachute or advanced weaponry.

This book is a part story and part manual. It follows David's story to become an engaging public speaker and the lessons he learnt along the way. It shows how anyone can become funny and breaks down the steps to get there.

It is a highly motivating book for someone who is nervous of approaching the world of public speaking, business presentations and things like a Ted speech. David goes into the science of what makes a great speech and how to reflect and add moments that capture your audiences imagination and increase your confidence.

The idea of doing stand up comedy seems like a distant and scary dream to 99% of humans. This book makes it seem quite possible and we expain the lessons learnt and how to approach becoming a funnie speaker.
