Review by Booklist Review

When it comes to speaking out, women have always been at a disadvantage. When they raise their voices, they are shrill. When they show emotion, they are weak. And when they push their political agendas, they are discounted. Jahnke, speech coach and president and founder of Positive Communications, fills this nuts-and-bolts book with practical advice on how to succeed as speaker, activist, and political candidate. She begins by reminding women that they, especially, need to be aware of how their personality comes across, be prepared to face hostile audiences, and be succinct in their presentations. Jahnke uses powerful women as examples as she offers instructions for how to assess audiences, formulate platforms, and deal with the media. And she spells out ways to use body language, imagery, and vocal techniques to enhance the message and win over listeners, Jahnke also discusses public put-downs by men in power and provides calm, pointed advice on how to respond professionally and successfully. Any woman who wants to make change as advocate, candidate, or worker will benefit from Jahnke's expert and practical guidelines.--Candace Smith Copyright 2018 Booklist
