Great intro to public speaking
4 stars By Andrew, Aug 10 2016
This is one of the best books on preaching that I've read. Whilst targeted towards teenagers, I think you could apply most of the stuff to preaching to adults as well! 
This book isn't where you'd go for a theology of preaching or for anything about the actual content of your sermon. There are other books for that. But it's great in terms of presentation skills, structuring your talks, being engaging and knowing communication theory. I'll recommend this to all my youth leaders.
