Summary

Ever been at a loss for words on an important occasion? Be it a business presentation or a television appearance, a proposal of love or a one-to-one with your direct reports, this book helps you discover your voice and hence leaves your audience-and not you-speechless!  
 
A powerful D-I-Y book on effective public speaking, Speechless explores and explains the magic and logic which go into crafting an effective speech, presentation or talk. Authored by Roshan Abbas and Siddharth Banerjee, two of India's most experienced communicators, the book rests on the duo's belief that effective communication can be taught and shaped by deliberate practice. The authors have distilled 50 years of their experience in effective communication into a simple mantra that you can imbibe and follow, replete with examples, stories, tips and tricks, expert interviews and practice exercises.  
  
Speechless brings-for the first time in India-in-depth interviews of the country's foremost public speakers, thus serving as a guide to both amateurs and professionals who want to hone their power of public speaking.

    Some people still view Bitcoin as a startup. But despite being declared dead many times by the mainstream media, Bitcoin grows stronger every year. What’s going on? It’s not too late to learn about Bitcoin and invest. Bitcoin’s value has grown exponentially over multiple boom and bust cycles spanning a decade. Bitcoin is an Internet-native phenomenon like Alibaba, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Microsoft, and Tencent. It therefore benefits from the “network effect” which makes it dramatically more valuable as the network grows. But its potential value is much larger than the giant Internet companies we know so well. If Bitcoin reaches that potential, its value could rise by 50 times its current price in the coming decade. This book will help you understand the role of money in our society, the current state of debt in our economy, and how Bitcoin provides a better solution.
