Do you recall Soviet Premier Nikita Krushchev pounding his shoe on a table at the United Nations? In Khrushchev's Shoe, author Roy Underhill recounts Krushchev's gaffe as one way to lose your audience while gaining their attention. The host of PBS' "The Woodright's Shop" and a communications consultant, lecturer and workshop leader, Underhill combines lessons learned "on the job" with related research in a folksy style ("Not making eye contact is like bowling through a curtain").
