Praise for Public Speaking:

 

“This text is great; it can be used for first year speech courses and advanced as well. The figure charts, “Ethics Alert” boxes, Speaker’s Notes… all simply outperform other texts.” - Dave Berg, Weber State University

 

“This book is unique because of its writing style. I have been pleasantly surprised to find out how much I enjoy reading the chapters and even find myself more inspired to teach and practice public speaking better. I feel that the authors write out of a sense of conviction about this craft and incorporate authentic and relevant examples to illustrate the concepts principles and ethics.” - Dorothy Collins, Texas A&M University
