The Art of Public Speaking by Dale Carnegie - Book Review

Speaking properly is an art and public speaking is an absolute art. I think most of us are either afraid of public speaking or make common mistakes. There is the psychology behind speaking well in public. From the pages of history, we can pick some of the best speakers who stood tall in front of the public and delivered some of the renowned speeches which are still remembered by us. After listening to them we try to imitate them but imitating is not the solution to the problem. It requires regular practice, building confidence and enhancing regularly. Hesitation and psychological fear of losing is the biggest obstacle in public speaking. In order to overcome this fear, there are certain principles and guidelines. So, today I am going to talk about a famous book by Dale Carnegie entitled "The Art of Public Speaking." This is one of the widely read books across the globe.

Lambs Tales from Shakespeare - Book Review

There is no doubt that Shakespeare is the best writer in English Literature; he was so and he might enjoy this entitlement as long as we continue to be the inhabitants of this plant. Am I exaggerating? Maybe but I am only saying what I have been feeling all the way after reading so much of English literature. His dramas are famous worldwide and still able to fit in the current context and that's where his speciality is. It's a dream of everyone to read Shakespeare but honestly speaking his writings are a bit hard to be understood by a normal reader. But someone has thought to make it easier for common readers as well. I am talking about the famous book entitled 'Lambs' Tales from Shakespeare' by Charles Lamb and his sister who is often forgotten, Mary. The world of readers will always be indebted to these two fine people!

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson - Book Review

In the world of two decades ago, children were often advised to read as many biographies of great personalities as they could. It had a reason - the lives of great people inspire us to become better persons and achieve something more than just for oneself. Reading a biography also becomes important because it is not written by oneself. It is written by someone else who has observed the life of a person from ringside and notes down every possible aspect - pros and cons of a person. Today, I will be reviewing the biography of Steve Jobs, written by Walter Isaacson.
