Summary: Written in a casual, lively style and clearly organized, this edition ofMastering Public Speakingequips students with a firm grounding in the ''hows'' and ''whys'' of public speaking, providing an ideal balance of theory and skills while placing important emphases on critiquing, ethics, and critical thinking. Building on its previous success, the Sixth Edition retains its popular and distinctive emphasis on the ethical contract between speaker and listener and on the value of criti morequing speeches to improve one's own skills. Full of student examples from both two- and four-year schools (some of which are included in video form on MySpeechLab),Mastering Public Speakingadds interest and relevance to all aspects of the speech-making process.

Students may self-select these activities or their instructors may assign them.. Selected sample speechesdiscussed in the book are available on MySpeechLab in video format, offering visual examples for students. A stunning new designwill engage students while presenting content in a more user-friendly style. What your colleagues are saying . . . ''I find a lot to like in this text since I have used it since 1993. The book is very readable . . . and the mix of theory, practice, example, and application is super for an intro speech course.'' ~ Kathy Lee Berggren,Cornell University ''This text is undoubtedly the strongest public speaking textbook I have worked with . . . In fact, the next time a textbook review committee is formed for a standardized public speaking course, the Grice and Skinner text will be my first recommendation.'' ~ Marianne Palmisano,Glendale Community College less
