If you have ever carried a lucky talisman in your pocket to give yourself courage before a big event then carry this book instead. Based on Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), the ground-breaking solutions to performance anxiety in this book will carry you through the most daunting experience of public speaking.

The exercises are simple and highly effective. Even if you have suffered intolerably from performance nerves in the past this book will enable you to perform with passion and determination and wow your audience. How many times have you picked up a self-help book and thought “it’s all very well but it wont work for me”? This time the book meets you where you are and helps you to succeed by approaching the problem on many different levels.

Judy inspires and encourages you with her descriptions and anecdotes. There are exercises that you can easily do at home and which are interesting and fun to do. The exercises are diverse so that issues are tackled in a variety of different ways. You can do the exercises either alone or with other people. The book is brief and easy to read, the techniques highly practical and the methods simple yet profound.

“A true empowerment tool which should get into the hands of many. It really cuts to the chase. It’s a clear explanation of why things happen rather than self help book. A new phenomenon.”

Butterflies and Sweaty Palms

This book is motivating and entertaining. Speaking in front of others and presenting can be perceived as quite daunting. Judy addresses this is a sensitive manner, offering lots of ways to develop confidence and presenting.

The use of questions throughout the book makes it personal and speaking in front of people is personal. Case studies are given throughout encouraging the reader to observe the impact the tools have had on others and how they may support them individually.

Key throughout is how our thoughts impact on our feelings and behaviours. This message is put across in such a friendly tone making the book a joy to read and relate to.

Definitely a book I will be recommending to colleagues and clients.
