Overview

This text presents public speaking as a living and dynamic transaction in which the meaning of the message emerges from the relationship between the speaker and the audience. From this perspective, students are encouraged to think critically about their communication and recognize the centrality of the audience in speech preparation.

Substantially revised and reorganized, the sixth edition returns to offering a significant degree of content related to the classical and contemporary theories of communication studies—a distinct and popular attribute of earlier editions.

Booknews
This beginning speech text provides an instructor with a number of pedagogical tools that can assist students with the sometimes overwhelming experience of public speaking. One entire chapter is dedicated to coping with anxiety, while another is devoted to a student's first speech. Each chapter begins with learning objectives, and incorporates tips and tactics for real-life speech making. Sample speeches and pointers on considering cultural differences when writing and giving speeches are also scattered throughout the text. Color photographs capture both famous speakers and everyday speaking and listening opportunities. Brydon and Scott both teach at California State University, Chico. Annotation c.
