Summary

THOMSON ADVANTAGE BOOKS: THE SPEAKER'S COMPACT HANDBOOK, Second Edition, equips you with the essential information, tips, and tools you need to be an effective public speaker.

Two simple features--Key Points and Checklists--help you stay on track throughout the speech-building process. In addition to the material within the handbook, online interactive tools like Speech Builder Express 3.0, InfoTrac® College Edition, and WebTutor help further develop your public speaking skills.
