3 Book Recommendations for Content Creators

If you're like me, you're always striving to improve your craft.

Whether it's improving the quality of your video, audio, or what you say inside the content.

While there's no substitute for consistent practice, I believe certain books can offer insight that YouTube videos and social media clips can't replace.

Here are 3 books that have helped me become a better podcaster, and overall a better communicator.

On the Mic by Nic Redman

I spoke with Nic Redman on Digital Creator episode 120 (Preparing Your Body and Voice for Podcasting).

Nic is a voice coach who helps anyone reach their speaking, recording and performance goals.

What I love about this book: Every voice is unique and what Nic does amazingly is help you feel comfortable with what you're working with.

It's Not All About Me by Robin Dreeke

After we've dialed in our voice, we quickly start looking for others to collaborate with. Whether it's podcast interviews or just interacting with new people, Dreeke offers a masterclass in building rapport and putting people at ease.

What I love about this book: It's not written for creators, Dreeke is a retired Marine and FBI special agent. With that in mind, the strategies he shares cross over into many areas of life.

Pitch Perfect by Bill McGowan

Finally, when it comes to precise and impactful communication, Pitch Perfect by Bill McGowan is invaluable. McGowan's background as a 2x Emmy Award-winning journalist, and coach to some of the biggest spokespeople in media.

What I love about this book: Bill provides different approaches to help tighten your content that allows you to transition smoother between segments and make your key points stick.

Of course, reading all of these are just the first step - committed practice is required.
