Publisher Comments:

A Concise Public Speaking Handbook, 2/e

Steven A. Beebe, Texas State University - San Marcos

Susan J. Beebe, Texas State University - San Marcos

 

The Concise Public Speaking Handbook offers the authors’ unique, audience-centered approach in a brief and inexpensive spiral-bound text.  The comprehensive coverage of key public speaking topics and skills makes The Concise Public Speaking Handbook an ideal core text for public speaking courses, and its low cost makes it affordable as a supplement for any course or setting that requires public speaking.

 

New to the Second Edition:

  • New examples and sample speech outlines throughout the text ensure that the models are contemporary and useful. 
  • Greater emphasis on rhetorical analysis helps you better analyze your own speeches and those of others. 
  • A new section called “Understanding Your Listening Style” aids you in becoming a better audience member.  

 

MySpeechKit is an electronic supplement that offers book-specific learning objectives, chapter summaries, flashcards and practice tests as well as video clips and activities to aid learning and comprehension. Also included in MySpeechKit are Research Navigator and live weblinks, both of which provide assistance with and access to powerful and reliable research material.

Praise for A Concise Public Speaking Handbook, 2e:

“When I picked up A Concise Public Speaking Handbook by Beebe and Beebe, the decision to change was almost immediate.  Finally, I was holding a textbook for experienced instructors of public speaking.  Instead of dictating speech outline formats or sample response sheets for speakers as so many other textbook authors, Beebe and Beebe offer practical reinforcement of key ideas about conversation, listening and speech delivery that all of us discuss with students in our classes.” – Judith A. Schum, Reading Area Community College
