This book was required for a speech class I took. The book is very interesting and has a lot of techniques to make a speech effective. I really like the sections on ¿Preparing Your Speech¿ and ¿Presenting Your Speech.¿ They were actually the best. There are some great examples of how communication affects the environment and the speaker. The sequential process of writing and delivering a speech is packed with some excellent principles and suggestions. This is an excellent book for preparing and delivering a speech building confidence to speak, and to develop credibility with the audience. This is an excellent book for speakers and potential speakers. It has helped me with poetry presentations and speaking engagements.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
