Summary

A comprehensive text that covers all topics typically taught in the introductory course. Key topics include listening; ethics; managing speech anxiety; audience analysis; topic selection; researching; organizing and outlining; using language; creating presentation aids; delivery; and constructing informative, persuasive, and special occasion speeches plus business and professional.

Unique and easy-to-use format. Designed for quick retrieval of key information, the twelve tabbed dividers allow the book to flip open easily, a comb binding lets it lie flat, and a quick access menu on the inside front cover directs students to the section they need. Summary checklists and key terms appear on color-screened Speaker's Reference pages at the beginning of each tabbed section, helping students to quickly find the information they need, while checklists and charts throughout the text summarize key information. A wealth of reference appendices allows students to easily access highly practical information such as tips for correctly pronouncing difficult words, citing sources correctly, and researching current and classical communication theory.
