Skills for better public speaking! Similar to a road map, this book is designed to effectively guide beginners through their first public speaking course. Maps offer a clear sense of destination, provide the means to determine how long any given route might be, denote places one might encounter along the way, and alert people to resources they might need and what kinds of hazards or problems they might face. To continue the metaphor, this book pilots readers through the process of public speaking from understanding the fundamental characteristics of communication, to ethical considerations for speeches, to the benefits of listening effectively, to incorporating audio-visual aids that can enhance their messages. At the end of their journey, readers will have acquired knowledge useful in presenting varied messages to multiple audiences and the skills that will serve them in the broader aspects of career and life.
