Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Collections of speeches are often difficult to come by, particularly relatively current speeches. This is a great collection of commencement addresses by such people as Carl Sagan, Florence Griffith Joyner, Daniel Inouye, Neil Simon, Jonas Salk, Dr. Seuss and more. The speeches range from serious and weighty to not so weighty and highly entertaining. A great companion to any study of language, a public speaking class or unit, or as reference material for a speech team, this book makes a great resource for classroom or library. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 1996, Scholastic, 229p, illus, 23cm, $6.99. Ages 16 to adult. Reviewer: Elsie Keys; Teacher & Libn., Kalispell, MT, May 2001 (Vol. 35 No. 3)
