"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."
