Imagine public speaking as a bowl of strawberries—that’s the delicious analogy Rae Stonehouse serves up in his e-book, “Working With Words: Adding Life to Your Oral Presentations.” He reckons that a few well-chosen words can be like savoring a couple of fresh strawberries—absolutely delightful. But get bombarded with too many, and it’s like being faced with a bushel you can’t possibly eat. The trick, Stonehouse says, is to craft your speech like a strawberry shortcake: just the right amount to leave your audience satisfied yet hungry for more.

With over 26 years of Toastmasters experience, Stonehouse is dishing out the good stuff. His book isn’t just about talking; it’s about talking with pizzazz. You’ll learn how to sprinkle the sugar of descriptive power into your talks, whip up vocal variety that captivates, and garnish with gestures that pack a punch. “Working With Words” is the go-to guide for anyone itching to amp up their speaking game and leave listeners lingering on their every word.
