I think this is a fantastic reference book for explaining and helping to prepare any type of speech one would ever have to do. It is appropriate for the professional, as well as a student in a speech class. The explanations are clear and concise, and the format is very easy to use. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is in need of help to prepare a speech.

Excellent transaction with fast shipping. Book was the one need for class and like always, the new price was much cheaper than the used prices at all of the local college bookstores.
