About the Author:

Cindy L. Griffin is a professor emerita of communication studies at Colorado State University. A proponent of civic engagement and civility in people's communication and their lives, she has taught public speaking; civility; gender and communication; communication, language, and thought; contemporary theories of rhetoric; history of rhetorical theories; feminist theories of discourse; identity, voice, and agency; and graduate seminars in women's studies. Her research interests include developing the theory of invitational rhetoric, advancing theories that help communication scholars and students understand our complex identities, and exploring the relationships between civility, power, and rhetoric. Dr. Griffin is the author of INVITATION TO PUBLIC SPEAKING (Cengage, 2012) and INVITATION TO PUBLIC SPEAKING HANDBOOK (Cengage, 2011); coauthor of INVITATION TO HUMAN COMMUNICATION (with Jennifer Bone, 2013), FEMINIST RHETORICAL THEORIES (with Sonja K. Foss and Karen A. Foss, Waveland, 2006), and READINGS IN FEMINIST RHETORICAL THEORY (with Karen A. Foss and Sonja K. Foss, Waveland, 2004); and coeditor of STANDING IN THE INTERSECTIONS: FEMINIST VOICES, FEMINIST PRACTICES IN COMMUNICATION STUDIES (with Karma R. Chávez, SUNY Press, 2012). A former editor of WOMEN'S STUDIES IN COMMUNICATION (2006-2010), Dr. Griffin also has published articles and book chapters addressing identities, civilities, feminisms, and rhetorical and communication theories. She received her PhD from Indiana University.

Review:

"This book is very practical. It really does take students on a step-by-step process that yields good speeches. I probably follow the textbook more closely than any of my colleagues and-not coincidentally-my students typically take the honors in the department's annual speaking contest."

"This book, with its invitational approach, does remind students of the larger context of giving a speech (not just completing an assignment), which fits nicely with my goal of promoting civic engagement."
