His books is not just a planning tool but also a motivational one. It makes one a good communicator from being an ordinary one... then, makes you a better one ... and finally a dynamic communicator. I am sure the reader will gain insights into importance of preparation. He has also given pointers about managing time and introducing humor to retain attention of listeners.

Breathe deep and speak clearly August 30, 2013
I hate public speaking. 20 years ago I would have a panic attack and get hives over speaking in public. This has been an area of great stretching in my life. G-d keeps putting me in a position where I have to speak to rooms of 15- 250. I am not great at it. I also have no idea what I am doing!
This book helps with that.
"It takes the reader through the process of selecting and developing a theme, giving it focus, fleshing it out, and communicating well with the audience. The first half is devoted to preparation, the second to delivery."
Knowing the audience, setting the stage and delivering a speech that is properly put together are all skills you will learn and how to utilize in this book.
SCORRE is an acronymn that Ken Davis has come up with in order to help us remember the process of creating and giving a speech. While I will still be relying on G-d to do any public speaking, I feel as though I will be better prepared for what He asks me to do. Also I LIKE PLANS and I am fond of lists. This book gave me a step by step plan to follow.
