Secrets of Dynamic Communication

October 22, 2013

“Secrets of Dynamic Communication” by Ken Davis is an enjoyable and very informative book.

As a student and a teacher of public speaking, I enjoyed the information and the way it was presented in this book. Ken Davis presents the information in an easy to understand, easy to apply fashion.

He uses a template he has labeled SCORRE,

SC = the Subject and Central theme. This is the point where you decide what you are going to be talking about. O = Objective. This is where you determine the focus of your speech. RR = Rationale and Resources. In determining the rationale, you determine what you are going to say about your subject – for us preachers, these are your three points. The resources are your supporting and illustrative material.

E = Evaluation. We must always be “reaching for excellence” and, as Davis says, this is a never ending process.

The remainder of the book addresses technical and personal aspects of public speaking and is well worth the time it takes to read it.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is called upon to speak to groups of any size, for any occasion.  

Thomas Nelson provides a free copy of these books for review through their “Booksneeze” Program ; however, I am not required to give a positive review of the book
