Art of Public Speaking

Call it "glossophobia" or just "fear of talking in front of a group" – for many of us, speech anxiety ends in debilitating awkwardness. Thanks to The Art of Public Speaking by Lucas, there's a set of time-tested guidelines for successfully addressing your audience. No matter what your starting skill level, you'll become a more confident public speaker through The Art of Public Speaking's crystal-clear explanations of classic and contemporary speech theory. We're big fans of The Art of Public Speaking's practical exercises. (So, if you need an emcee for your next event, we're the (totally NOT awkward) textbook company for the job!).
