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.

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.

HASH(0xa6623780) out of 5 stars Amazon Sucks!!!!! April 14 2014
By vyacheslav borisenko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have ordered this book for my class and it says that it is a "paperback" but all I received was card for electronic book. I cannot use it for my class and now I do not have time to re-order it. Thanks to Amazon, I am screwed now. I will have to re-take this class next quarter and I lost money that I paid for this class.

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.
