Reader to Writer - Untitle That Book!

A title in a Spencer Street Station bookshop:

How To Become a Great Public Speaker

Why would I want to become a great public speaker? I'm happy with my weight as it is, and I don't think speaking in public would drive me to obesity.

Perhaps the title should have been:

How To Become a Great Good Public Speaker

How To Become a Great Celebrated Public Speaker

How To Become an
Great Extraordinary Public Speaker

How To Become a
Great Marvellous Public Speaker

How To Become a Great Godlike Public Speaker

How To Become a Great Supernatural Public Speaker

You know, when you're writing a book about public speaking, you probably want to get the title right!

Personally, I think the most apt title for that book would be "How to be a natural public speaker". Whenever you see someone speaking to large crowds, you can see whether they are a natural at it or not.

It's usually the fat ones who suck at it.

This chap is certainly nott known for his speaking abilities, but he makes up for it in other ways...
