Product Description

From the Back Cover

Key features for this edition include:

  • Easy-to-use, reference format enables readers to look up and use information quickly. Tabbed dividers enable readers to access chapters quickly, while the spiral binding makes working with the book easy.
  • Tabbed sections offer "At a Glance" outlines that highlight chapter content for easy reference.
  • Unique, audience-centered approach, introduced in the Beebes' prior edition, emphasizes the importance of considering the audience at all stages of the public speaking process. The audience-centered model, displayed on each tabbed divider, reminds readers of the steps involved in speech preparation and delivery, while simultaneously emphasizing the ongoing process of analyzing and adapting to listeners.
  • Brief "Quick Check" summaries throughout the book recap key information for quick review.
  • A Question of Ethics boxes (throughout the book) invite students to consider ethical issues as they prepare and deliver their presentations, including the tradition of free speech in a democratic society, plagiarism, honesty in communication, the legitimate use of evidence and reasoning, and the need for tolerance.
  • Extensive coverage of overcoming speech anxiety (Ch. 2) includes applications of the latest communication research with concrete suggestions to help readers better manage speaker anxiety and communication apprehension.
  • Guidance on conducting library and online research (Ch. 8) contains tips for using the Internet for speech research and suggestions for finding, evaluating, and documenting online sources.
  • “How To” boxes provide step-by-step instructions for completing the steps in the speech preparation process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Get - and Publically Speak ! May 29 2016

This book is fabulous ! After ordering this for my daughter's college class, she began speaking like an authoritative politician :-) Seriously, it was a great book for an A for my fabulous daughter's college class. She now "public speaks" around the house and "learns me". Joking aside, great book. I didn't have to read it, I saw the results in action !
