This dense classic (AoPS) unpacks public speaking topic by topic, providing previous speeches throughout to practice with.

It approaches public speaking from the absolute best perspective: it's not about you, it's about THE MESSAGE!

AoPS also has amazing introductory piece on being courageous.

One major caveat to keep in mind: The style of public speaking has changed in the past +100 years. Gone are the days of three-hour booming oratories by Webster and Beecher. In their stead modern speaking have to be quick-hitting with profound and engaging stories.

This book is the footing of formal public speaking teachings, as the author of the book Public Speaking A Simple How-to Guide on becoming a comfortable and confident public speaker, I must say everyone should read this book first, then try other books.

This is a really good deal. Nowadays you cannot find such a good book with that price.

The language is a bit dated, but the content is still relevant.

If you need to do any type of public speaking, networking and small talk, pick up this book right away and start skimming.

This is a great buy for the money. There's very good structure in it and it did have some useful tips. But I would recommend that you would go well get a couple CDs to listen to on the topic. I purchased in about three different ones to listen to and that was even bigger all.

Scholarly but down to earth. A must for those interested in.the essence of man and his interaction with self, God, and nature. Also. If have time, check out the backgrounds of the men he referenced. Truly an inspired piece!

This handbook on Public Speaking is a helpful read to understanding the power of transferring a great message, captivating an audience and holding their interest.
This book is a relatively easy read chocked full of information that will push a potential speaker past their fears and into their own personal success.
I recommend.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The version I viewed on Amazon is not the same as the version I received today. This is a major disappointment. The version I received is unformatted and set in courier font, with no contrast between textual elements, headings etc. While the cover states that it is a High Quality Paperback version, it is no where near the quality it claims to be. The dense text, set in typewriter style, with page breaks all over the place (for example, headings are found at the bottom of pages and the body text that belongs to the heading is set on a different page), makes the book highly inaccessible. This renders 352 large pages of this book useless. The publisher has done this book a great injustice and Amazon has done its customers a great disservice by not advertising the correct version, especially when the difference between the older version advertised and the one sold is so great. It is quite surprising that in this day and age of high tech desktop publishing programs this book has been allowed to be published in this shabby and user-hostile format. It will take a real effort to wade through this jungle of text to make sense of the valuable information the author presented. Zero Rating!
