I call Tom Antion "one of the smart guys." He has been very successful as an entrepreneur for over 40 years. He has had great success as a public speaker, as an Internet marketer, as an author, and as a mentor.
He is also one of the good guys. He wants to help people be successful in their endeavors.
One of his most significant publications is Wake 'Em Up! Business Presentations. The book is aimed primarily at public speakers, but it also contains a wealth of information that is suitable for magicians, emcees, ventriloquists, and anyone else who needs to get in front of an audience.
I really can't explain adequately in a blog post how valuable this book is. But visit Tom's website, and you can get all the information there.
Since the book was originally published in the 1990s, a little bit of the information is out of date. But don't let that hold you back. I have this book and have gotten a lot from it. Highly recommended!
