Today we are going to talk about presence and how this author chose to present it.

Here is the book description extracted from Amazon:
“Have you ever left a nerve-racking challenge and immediately wished for a do over? Maybe after a job interview, a performance, or a difficult conversation? The very moments that require us to be genuine and commanding can instead cause us to feel phony and powerless. Too often we approach our lives’ biggest hurdles with dread, execute them with anxiety, and leave them with regret.

By accessing our personal power, we can achieve “presence,” the state in which we stop worrying about the impression we’re making on others and instead adjust the impression we’ve been making on ourselves. As Harvard professor Amy Cuddy’s revolutionary book reveals, we don’t need to embark on a grand spiritual quest or complete an inner transformation to harness the power of presence. Instead, we need to nudge ourselves, moment by moment, by tweaking our body language, behavior, and mind-set in our day-to-day lives.

Amy Cuddy has galvanized tens of millions of viewers around the world with her TED talk about “power poses.” Now she presents the enthralling science underlying these and many other fascinating body-mind effects, and teaches us how to use simple techniques to liberate ourselves from fear in high-pressure moments, perform at our best, and connect with and empower others to do the same.

Brilliantly researched, impassioned, and accessible, Presence is filled with stories of individuals who learned how to flourish during the stressful moments that once terrified them. Every reader will learn how to approach their biggest challenges with confidence instead of dread, and to leave them with satisfaction instead of regret.”

Hey John, thank you for your Book Reviews. Can you do two other book reviews, totally worth it. John Taylor Gatto – Dumbing us down, John Taylor Gatto – Weapons of Massinstruction ,Thank you.

John Doe says:

Jon, thanks for doing this review. You keep bringing content that really empowers your audience with tools of transformation. Really great insights. I’d like to suggest that you focus some on presentation because you seem a bit rushed and a little scattered sometimes. It could be easier to follow with some strategic pauses and emphasis to ward off the sometimes monotone feel. I recognize its not an easy task communicating like this, especially in these brief segments packed with so many ideas. Thanks again for sharing these ideas with your audience. Have you considered doing more interviews in this area of personal transformation? I hope to hear a lot more from you in future.

Dreamer Dreamerov says:

Loved the review, I probably buy in in a month. I`ll save for it and I managed to find a part time job, yay :). By the way on one of your videos before where you talked about on how not to be shy and be more confident, you said to go to a place you choose and shout something like “I have a penis”. I actually went to a supermarket and shout it while adding some notes to that and I had to stay for a while with the police and after 4 hours they let me go because I was not on anything. Man it was fun. LOVE YOUR VIDEOS!!!
