  • Critical Interaction boxes in each chapter provide readers with opportunities to actively engage in critical thinking exercises that enhance their understanding of key concepts.

The author provided a number of methods on how to prepare for a speech. Preparation and Presentation tips were stressed. The book provided the reader with ideas they could use immediately to improve their approach to public speaking.

Format: Paperback
Decent book that offers some really great tips. Unfortunately, some of the examples of "great" public speakers are a bit subjective. When the has as much President Obama examples as Martin Luther King, I find it a bit laughable. This is especially true in my case since I haven't listened to any speech of his since before the last election. This is especially true since most of his speeches have gotten huge criticism as of late. It makes the book and credibility of the author look weaker in my opinion.

Like I said, my perception is very subjective but the book could have used better examples than the current President and the first lady. That being said, take this review with a grain of salt and I don't need anyone pointing out comments about my opinion since it is my opinion.

I did not read the book. I did not choose the book. It was required. I bought it. Wisely, I might add.

And I sold it again to another student for $1.50 more than I bought it for (including shipping) because I believe in education,

I don't belive in being ripped off or ripping someone else off. I got it cheap, and so did they. Win win.
