“Allison Shapira has become not only a master of public speaking but one of the best speech coaches in the U.S. In this new book, she provides a clear, practical roadmap for those who want to have impact in today’s clamorous world. If you want to excel on your feet, read this, keep this, and read again.”

“Allison Shapira’s new book is as much about leadership as it is about public speaking. She prods us to ask tough questions: what do we want to accomplish, who is our audience, why should they listen to us? And then she makes us critique ourselves and test our messages with the audience. I wish I had met her years ago.”
