Synopsis: How to Speak shows how even someone who isn't naturallycharismatic can become an effective speaker. In this presentationrecorded before a live audience, Professor Patrick Winston of theMassachusetts Institute of Technology offers advice on all aspectsof academic presentations. He discusses how to begin and end alecture, how to cycle in on the material, how to use verbalpunctuation to indicate transitions, and how to devise "nearmisses" that strengthen understanding by showing what a particularconcept is not. In addition, his presentation covers do's anddon'ts of blackboard use, overhead projectors, and props.

Throughout his lecture, Winston not only describes histechniques, but actively adopts them, illustrating each as he goes.The result is a detailed, practical guide designed for anyone whowishes to communicate effectively with an academic audience.

Throughout his teaching career, Steven Rudich, Professor ofComputer Science at Carnegie Melon University, has sought to conveycomplex ideas through simple means that work with, not against thecapacities and limitations of his students. The challenge, ofcourse, is to make such ideas clear without dumbing them down. InTechnical Speaking, Rudich demonstrates how this can bedone. He stresses the importance of accessibility (knowing youraudience), ambition (challenging them), and seduction (making themcare), and illustrates each with memorable examples. Making complexmatters simple is itself complex, but Rudich offers techniques andtools that make it possible.
