THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK is an excellent textbook for students in a public speaking course, as well as a practical reference for the independent speaker. Its thorough coverage addresses public speaking fundamentals such as planning, listening, and presentation aids, yet each topic can stand alone, giving readers a convenient reference even when they can't read the entire text. Forward-thinking new coauthor David Bodary joins Jo Sprague and Doug Stuart in this ninth edition of THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK to engage students in active learning beyond the classroom.
