Viv Groskop - How To Own The Room: Women And The Art Of Brilliant Speaking
Part self-help, part manifesto championing female speakers in the spotlight, How Women Own The Room is an entertaining and illuminating analysis of the oratory skills of a variety of brilliant women from recent history.
Groskop says: "There are now so many different ways for women to own the room and command an audience, whether it's at work or on social media. And yet still the stereotype persists that public performance is scary and intimidating, especially for women. I'm passionate about overturning that for others in the same way I did for myself. Also, I wanted an excuse to gawp at another few thousand hours of footage of Michelle Obama."

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
