The New TalkPower is a mind-body system that integrates neurobiology, behavior modification, performance techniques, speech crafting and leadership skills to help you master every aspect of public speaking -- from gracious toasts to great speeches. Learn how to breathe, sit quietly, maintain concentration, and reduce rapid heartbeat, trembling, and adrenaline rush triggered by speaking in public. From the TalkPower Action Formula through the Survival Kit for Public Speakers, to the speech-writing-made-easy speech templates, everything you need to be an assured and engaging speaker is here. The first edition of "TalkPower" (Dodd, Mead, 1982) sold more than 60,000 copies and was translated into nine foreign languages. Now the "New TalkPower" offers Ms. Roger's clinically-tested, perfected, and expanded system to a new generation of fearful public speakers.
