This concise, practical text focuses on the art and craft of persuasive oral argument. It explores why people are ill-at-ease with public speaking and addresses why the problem exists, why it matters, and what to do about it. The authors, teachers of oral advocacy who have broad trial experience as well, maintain that everyone can master basic oral advocacy, and they skillfully and in an engaging style guide the reader through the steps necessary to do so. Tongue-Tied America: Reviving the Art of Verbal Persuasion will make an excellent supplement to any Advocacy course, but anyone who ever speaks in front of other people formally or informally will find it an enlightening and valuable resource.
This highly readable text draws from the teachings of masters of rhetoric and uses techniques from several disciplines. It includes:
