As the first of its kind for this course, THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK has established itself as both a reference for the individual speaker and an excellent textbook for use in the public speaking course. Now, in a new brief format, THE SPEAKER'S COMPACT HANDBOOK, provides students with the essential information they need to be an effective public speaker. This compact handbook is easy to use in its spiral bound, easily referenced format. Each of the succinct chapters can stand alone, enabling the speaker to consult only those parts of the book covering the aspects of public speaking with which they need guidance. In addition to the material within the text, students can master their public speaking skills with the assistance of InfoTrac® College Edition and SpeechBuilderExpress speech outlining program, both of which are available with every new copy of THE SPEAKER'S COMPACT HANDBOOK.
