Summary

An innovative, comprehensive text. The 13 foundation chapters in Part One explain the public speaking process in depth and treat all of the topics and concepts traditionally assigned in an introductory speech course including ethics, listening, audience analysis, topic selection, research, organization, message development, language, delivery, the use of audiovisual aids, and speaking beyond the public speaking classroom. In addition, three innovative teaching tools set The St. Martin's Guide to Public Speaking apart and help students apply the principles: the Guides to Speaking in Part Two, unique Speech Grids integrated throughout the text, and an innovative CD-ROM.
