      This book contains a wealth of amusing anecdotes about working as a
      speaker for conferences and other events. Berkun writes well, and
      provides his usual store of esoteric information.

      Those in related fields, such as teaching, or work involving
      presentations to groups, might find some of the points helpful, or at
      least worth thinking about. On the other hand, the author definitely
      speaks from his own perspective, and doesn't address other options, in
      terms of preparation or presentation styles.

      The work is a great read, and should be considered for anyone's
      bedside reading list. It's usefulness may be limited.
