Saying It Well: Touching Others with Your Words
Charles Swindoll
FaithWords, January 2012
SAYING IT WELL is a practical, easy, and unique book on becoming an effective and persuasive speaker, teacher, and conversationalist. While most books on mastering the art of speaking take a very similar approach, mainly presenting philosophy, technique, and the how-to-do-it, SAYING IT WELL will make it personal and keep it realistic. The author will write in first person, not unlike a presciptive memoir, where he tells his own story of his journey in how he became a world class communicator. Yet, he'll stay focused on the subject and deliver the how-to, but in a personal, entertaining, vulnerable story format. He will lift the veil of his own struggles and the adventures he has been on in learning the craft so the reader can relate. The author will share several foundational principles regarding how to communicate, from preparing for a speech, organizing thoughts, filtering out the superfluous and focusing on the important, overcoming fears, how to grab the listener's attention, deliver in a convincing manner...and frankly, how and when to stop.

Winning the Food Fight is pastor Steve Willis’ insider look at the divine timing of Jamie Oliver’s visit and a backstage pass to the events that are changing the heart and health of an all- American city.
