Book Description

Public Speaking for College and Career combines a wealth of business and professional examples, and patient step by step instruction to writing and developing a speech, with an open accessible design. Thus, the book is ideal for schools where a practical, non-intimidating approach is essential for student learning. The new edition covers more on the impact of new technologies, from doing research on the Internet to gleaning the essential from the cornucopia of information available to today's students. New group activities encourage the cooperation demanded by employers in the business world.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY, Someone who can teach public speaking! Feb. 1 2002
Format:Paperback
As a college instructor of oral communication for ten years, I complained bitterly about the poor selection of books for beginning students--until now. This is the single best book of its kind on the market, bar none. In all my years, I've never had students brag on a book like this one: easy to read, well-organized, thoughtful, practical, visually attractive, and substantive. My best compliment is that I can teach three times the material in half the time just by using this text--and people understand it! I can't brag enough on the author's work. This is phenomenal. ANYONE who wants to master the basics of public speaking should read this cover to cover. The principles and techniques Mr. Gregory describes are effective, powerful, and described in a simple way. BRAVO! I'll recommend this to everyone.

I ordered the wrong book, this edition even though it shows the 9th edition cover is only the 3rd edition so I had to order another book from Ebay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Public Speaking Reference/Easy Read Sept. 22 2010
By Sandra Lloyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My title says it all...great textbook to keep and use as a public speaking/speech preparing reference tool. Although comprehensive in scope of material, the text was easy to read and understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speech Feb. 27 2006
By L. Hitchcock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I trully enjoyed this book, even though I am not a fan of text books. It has helped me develop stronger speaking skills, and I am not very good at public speaking. It's not a how to book, its simply a guide which offers tips and ideas on how you should present various topics.
