I rented this textbook for a college class and it does provide basic and practical information about public speaking. It is written in easy to follow language and the illustrations provide a basic visual guide to make you a better public speaker. It's an easy read; very well organized and written to be remembered. It should be a reference for the future. Highly recommended ;)






Speak Up : An Illustrated Guide to Public Speaking: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

Smart, compelling, fun, and affordable, Speak Up connects with students through great writing, useful guidance, and hundreds of custom-drawn illustrations that bring speech to life. Instructors appreciate the book's serious coverage of concepts and theories, fascinating real-life examples, and visual explanations that clarify complex ideas. And all this comes at less than half the price of competing texts.

I love this text book! I like the way it reads. I like the coverage of topics. I love the illustrations.... It is the perfect mix of theory and application. The examples are relevant and the illustrations are perfect for getting students to actually read the text. - Sandra K. Bowen, Fayetteville Technical Community College
