A book on Public Speaking by Sanjay Pinto, a person who has adeptly donned many hats was launched here on Sunday. US Consul General Jennifer McIntyre who released the book ‘Speakers Are Made Not Born’ said it will be a boon to all those who want to master the difficult art of public speaking.

The first copies were received by the heads of three prominent institutions – YGP of PSBB, Meena Muthiah of Chettinad Vidyashram and Father John Alexander of Don Bosco. Speaking at the launch of his book, the author Sanjay Pinto recalled how he was a nervous kid in school who would be ‘terrified about even answering the roll call in class!’ The book has 14 Steps to Master the Art of Public Speaking — like tips to overcome stage fright, body language, eye contact and voice modulation. “A paper on the podium is a public speaker’s worst enemy,” said Pinto. There is also a chapter analysing the much hyped speeches of Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi.  The book is priced at `300 and is available at all Landmark Book Stores in the country.
