Publisher Comments:

As the first text of its kind, THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK has established itself as both an invaluable reference for the individual speaker and an excellent textbook for use in the public speaking course. Sprague and Stuart give careful consideration to key cultural, educational, and technology trends to provide not only exceptionally efficient blocks of text that reflect the most recent research, but also abundant examples-including a new collection of sample speeches. Each chapter within THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK'S eight tabbed parts can stand alone, enabling you to quickly consult just the section of the text most pertinent to their immediate needs. This Eighth Edition, now full-color throughout and bound with a durable plastic "comb" binding, offers new features such as Key Point boxes and Checklists, as well as new illustrations and other graphics that bring the material to life. This edition is further enhanced by a robust suite of online resources, including a fully interactive electronic version of the text and an integrated online study system that provides personalized learning plans designed to help you use your study time as efficiently and effectively as possible!

Book News Annotation:

Sections include boxed tips and most significant information, illustrations, and directions that are comprehensive and easy to follow. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

As the first of its kind for this course, THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK has established itself as both a reference for the individual speaker and an excellent textbook for use in the public speaking course. The new edition of the THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK continues to distinguish itself by providing another innovation — a new spiral bound, tabbed format. Each of the chapters can stand alone, enabling the speaker to consult only those parts of the book covering the aspects of public speaking with which they need guidance. The new edition also offers expanded and updated research and presentation coverage, a new text-specific CD-ROM with interactivity that guides students through the speech-making process, and links to the Web-based Speech Builder Express speech-outlining program.

Synopsis:

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.
