Summary

The fifth edition of The Speaker's Handbook has been substantially streamlined and updated. Responding to the notion of a handbook as a reference tool, sections not heavily used by readers of prior editions have been deleted and some chapters have been combined. The sample speeches in the new appendix are brief examples of the major types of speeches given in academic and non-academic settings. Particular emphasis has been placed on including new electronic and telecommunication tools available for speakers, ranging from Internet research to presentational software. These innovations have been here long enough now, so the text does not just celebrate their availability but provides cautions about using them uncritically or inappropriately.
