"Every day there are moments when you must persuade, inform, and motivate others effectively. Each of those moments requires you, in some way, to play a role, to heighten the impact of your words, and to manage your emotions and nerves. In Steal the Show, New York Times best-selling author Michael Port draws on his experience as an actor and as a highly successful corporate speaker and trainer to teach readers how to make the most of every presentation and interaction. He demonstrates how the methods of successful actors can help you connect with, inspire, and persuade any audience." -- Provided by publisher.

The advice given isn't nearly as meaningful as I hoped. It truly deals with only one scenario and that is you giving a speech to an auditorium or a boardroom full of people. It doesn't deal with the vast amount of interactions it promises, including job interviews and deal-closing pitches, which it splashes across its cover. If you need help with a TED Talks type of presentation, then you might value this book. Otherwise, it's a bit of a disappointment. I don't recommend it.
