Review:


"It is very rare to read a textbook and not want to put it down; a unique situation I found myself in as I read Practically Speaking. It is a refreshing textbook that reads more like an informative narrative without succumbing to the fate of being simply entertainment. The text does not speak down to students; it talks to them and engages them in a way that only a good storyteller could do. All-in-all, this book is a great read!"
--Matthew Sciarrino, St. John's University


"I'm a fan of Rothwell's writing style--and my students are as well. His style is concise, yet full of substance and even humorous. It's not 'dumbed down.' The text is chock-full of terrific research, current and even edgy examples, and solid advice for students learning the art of public speaking."
--Jill Alcorn, Green River Community College


"The sense of humor is brilliant, edgy, topical, and smart. I found myself literally LOL-ing numerous times."--Andrew Herrmann, East Tennessee State University


"I love this book. I love the tone, content, and writing style and find it appropriate and engaging for college students. Overall great scholarship--way more than most other texts! Practically Speaking takes public-speaking texts to a new and exciting place. It is unlike any other public-speaking book I've encountered and I enjoyed and appreciated the breath of fresh air."--Brandi Quesenberry, Virginia Tech


"You'll forget you're reading a textbook when laughter becomes inevitable. There's well-applied research, the chapters are organized beautifully, and the author has not forgotten the value of communication and its field. This is my kind of reading material." --Laveda Joseph, Columbus State University


"This textbook is relevant with great practical knowledge about speech making and great examples included."--Tonya Forsythe, The Ohio State University


"Practically Speaking is exactly what the title implies. It covers the basics of public speaking in an understandable and straightforward manner, uses a modern approach, and includes contemporary examples. The best part about the textbook is the price: at $30, it is the best bargain by far for public speaking textbooks. Oxford University Press is an amazing nonprofit company that provides affordable and high-quality textbooks for students. My students love this textbook."--Jeff Przybylo, Harper College
