The eighth edition concentrates on greater simplicity, clarity, and accessibility. The book offers a functional approach to informative speaking and emphasizes the ethics of persuasive speaking. These ideas come to life through examples from real, student, and professional speeches, Exploration and Application exercises at the end of each chapter, and a variety of boxed features throughout the book.
