"For most of my life, I had a terrorizing fear of public speaking. But there I was, about to conduct a presentation to 15,000 people." Scared Speechless is the story of how an ordinary guy, Roy Rosell, overcame his crippling fear of public speaking and social anxiety. Roy often found himself crouched over a toilet with nerves-induced nausea before presentations, no matter the size of the audience. During presentations, he sweated, suffered, and spent half the time on stage trying to convince himself not to jump out of the boardroom window. His fear of public speaking controlled every aspect of his life for twelve years-his relationships were tarnished, professional future jeopardized, and he was on the brink of dropping out of college. That is, until he was asked to speak in front of 15,000 people at his graduation ceremony. In this hilarious and inspiring new book, Scared Speechless, author Roy Rosell reveals everything he learned (the hard way) about overcoming fear, hesitation, and doubt. By sharing his sometimes-hysterical, sometimes-painful stories about his twelve years of living with a debilitating fear of public speaking, Roy shows the reader how he overcame glossophobia and became a lover of public speaking. In the three months before his graduation speech, Roy developed a system that helped him transform from a student terrorized by the thought of public speaking, to a dynamic, outgoing speaker who delivered an empowering graduation speech to a captivated crowd. Scared Speechless is a unique, entertaining, and inspiring page-turner, a delightful trek through all the embarrassments and accomplishments Roy experienced while battling his own fear-and triumphing over it. If you want to overcome the fears holding you hostage, this book is for you. It is a book for students, working professionals, and anyone who is faced with the daunting task of breaking past a barrier to achieve their goals. In Scared Speechless, Roy shares his often times ridiculous journey and reveals his hard-won tips, tactics, and tales-to help you conquer your fear and doubts. Jam packed with hilarious, heart-warming, and illuminating stories of success and disasters, Scared Speechless is inspirational, sometimes disgustingly honest, and a total joy ride to read.
“Why am I a punk? Because I wasn’t anything before, except different. And now it’s like I’m different, but with a vengeance.” It’s been months since the suicide of Darby Crash, L.A. punk rock icon and lead singer of the Germs. He checked out on the same day John Lennon was shot: December 8, 1980. But for Rockets Redglare, it feels like yesterday. Darby was the hot-as-sun center of Rockets’s world. Part ringleader, part god, and all charismatic manipulator, Darby was as close to family as a hustler and street kid like Rockets might ever get. Now, as Rockets amps up for another night looking for tricks and scrounging a meal, Sex Pistols and X lyrics on repeat in his head, he knows he’s come to a turning point–the scene is changing, and nothing’s as easy as it was when Darby brought him into the fold. From the underground clubs to the back of the giant “H” in the Hollywood sign, Rockets and his crew of friends spend the night burning bridges, building new ones, tripping and talking and searching for answers. As the dark gives way to early morning, the punks and the cops engage in their ritual standoff–and Rockets faces the ultimate choice: Should he stay or should he go? From the Trade Paperback edition.
