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
