From the Publisher"Verderber does not preach to the student, he takes them through the actual process of putting a speech together. Not only does Verderber provide extensive examples of important concepts, they are visually represented as well. The progression of chapters makes complete sense to the steps of preparation included in a speech, i.e.. Each chapter builds on the previous chapter ideas."
"The level of writing is one of my favorite aspects of this text; it is not elemental nor is it too challenging. The directness with frequent, appropriate examples is the element that makes it readable and understandable. The examples are all pertinent."
"Verderber is a solid, comprehensive text for the basic speech course with excellent examples and a nice overall structure and look."
"My main attraction to the Verderber text is the manner in which the topics are correlated to actual steps needed to perfect public speaking attempts. I feel the beginner student would find the step by step approach comforting in level of assistance."
"The textbook supports the goals of my class by relating to students how to apply public speaking outside of the classroom and incorporates technology. The three greatest strengths of this text are 1) the tone of the writing, 2) the use of technology and 3) the amount of detail and use of specific examples. The tone of the writing is formal without being unreachable."
