About the Author:

Jo Sprague is Professor Emeritus of Communication Studies at San Jose State University, where she also served as associate director of the Center for Faculty Development and Support.

Douglas Stuart is Vice President of Technical and Marketing Publications at FirstTel Systems Corporation.

Review:

"This text will allow me the pedagogical freedom to apply the concepts in my own teaching style. I can count on the fact that when students navigate through the chapter, they will read only the 'nuts and bolts', then they will do a written exercise, then I can further reinforce the information through guided practice in the classroom."

"The Speaker's Handbook provides some of the most effective, realistic research and delivery techniques of any oral communication text on the market. Students can become first-rate extemporaneous, conversational and substantive speakers under the guidance of Jo Sprague and Douglas Stuart."
