Participants in my public speaking workshops have often asked me to recommend some great books to read to take their public speaking skills to the next level. In fact, reading is a great way to gain new ideas and new perspectives on narration.
Here are 5 books I highly recommend to improve your public speaking skills.
Book 1: Confessions of a Public Speaker by Scott Berkun

Although I’m a firm believer that the best way to learn how to give exceptional speeches is to do the actual thing yourself (yes! Always get stage time to practice your speeches and hone your craft refine), reading books can bring you new ideas and fresh perspectives on a highway to success and achievement in the field. So go ahead and grab a book!
