Summary

The Art of Public Speaking is successful because it works well for both students and instructors. Instructors have come to rely on its careful explanations, its reinforcing examples, and its attention to the basics that help tentative students become competent speakers. Instructors have come to rely on the most comprehensive package of support materials available with any public speaking text. Meticulously prepared by the author to support and reflect the text, the ancillary materials allow the least experienced teaching assistant and the busiest professor to teach with confidence.
