INVITATION TO PUBLIC SPEAKING was designed to provide you with solid public speaking skills that will serve you well in the classroom and far beyond. This text shows you the power and importance of public speaking in your life as well as in the community. The author, who is a public speaking professor, takes time to teach you the "how" of speaking skills while also explaining "why" certain things must be done in a speech--and "why" you would want to speak publicly. Speech-building help and real-life examples in every chapter help you understand the basic concepts so that you learn to give successful speeches inside and outside the classroom.
