Speak with Confidence: A Practical Guide, 10/e

Albert J. Vasile, Bunker Hill Community College

 

Speak with Confidence gives students the skills they need to communicate quickly, confidently, and effectively.

 

Filled with engaging anecdotes, cartoons, and examples, Speak with Confidence is a practical and approachable public speaking text that both engages students in the material and also teaches them important speech lessons. Using a down-to-earth, conversational style that speaks to students and not at them, this text builds students' speechmaking confidence and offers all of the necessary skills for communicating effectively.

 

New Features:

  • Expands sections on important topics such as Plagiarism, Speech Apprehension, Appearance, Body Movement, Color, Vocalized Pauses, Audiovisual Aids, and Converging Technologies to improve students’ preparation and delivery of speeches.
  • Features new speeches to keep students engaged in the material.
  • Addresses important ethical considerations for students in a new section on Speaker Ethics.
  • Develops the unique concept of oral visualization throughout the text to help students communicate deeper meaning to audiences.
  • Contains a new Speech Guide for International Students to provide further assistance to non-native English speakers.
  • Emphasizes important verbal and non-verbal aspects of interviewing to provide students with the skills needed for successful job interviews.
  • Includes new “Vitalize Your Vocabulary” listings such as oxymorons and legal terms to help spark class discussions and ideas for speech topics.

 

Reviewer Quotations:

 

“The text provides excellent suggestions for increasing confidence and assertiveness in daily interactions and applying this skill to public speaking situations.  In comparison to our current text, Vasile’s text is clear and organized and written so that a student can understand and identify with the content.” — Julie Raplee, St. Joseph’s College

 

“I love this chapter [Saying a Few Words] — this is the communication student’s biggest need — not necessarily how to give a formal public speech, but rather to communicate and speak daily on a wide variety of impromptu topics. Well done!” — Heather Dorsey, University of Minnesota

 

“My goal for the course is the same goal as Vasile’s book: to help students speak with confidence one-on-one, in the small group, and before large groups.”  -- Rich M. Breiner, University of Great Falls
