Governor Mario Cuomo read Detz’s book and said: “Joan Detz has gone a long way toward taking the mystery out of writing and giving an effective speech. For this I will find it hard to forgive her.”

She dedicated “It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It” like this ~

This is for my son, Seth…

who brings words to life every day,

and gives me great joy.

How to Write and Give a Speech by Joan Detz – Dedication

In Books, HowTo on December 13, 2010 at 1:28 pm

Joan Detz dedicated her bestseller “How to Write and Give a Speech:”

This book is dedicated to the people

who have attended my speechwriting seminars over the years.

They come from diverse work backgrounds –

from corporations and universities,

to the U.S. Congress and our nation’s armed forces.

But they leave with one important thing in common – a

respect for the value, and the power, of the spoken word.

They write speeches that make a difference.

I applaud them.

Theatrical note ~ She autographed both of her books with this rhyme: “All the best, Joan Detz.”
