I ordered this book because it was required for my speech class. It did have a lot of common sense information that most people would already know but the book was very helpful, informative and interesting. Even if the book is not a requirement, I would recommend to anyone seeking a higher level of knowledge in speaking.

I am sorry, but honestly this book is a waste of money. I bought this textbook for my speech class. The teacher never even used it in lecture, just told us to read on our own. The book provided zero good info. It's basically all common sense just written in a lengthy and boring way.

Buyers beware--when purchasing this textbook for classroom use, please note that internet access to [...] is not available unless one purchases the e text access card package...for an additional $44.00. Unfortunately our society is too set on making an extra buck rather than focusing on meeting the needs of students. I am totally unhappy with this purchase!
