It applies 2,500-year-old principles with up-to-date research into concepts, skills, theories, applications, and critical thinking proficiencies essential for listening and speaking in today's world. Its discussions of classic public speaking topics are all grounded in an awareness of the impact of cultural nuances—ranging from gender differences to co-cultures within the United States to the traditions of other nations. This provides speakers with a heightened awareness of and sensitivity to the audience.

With a keen sense of what students need to excel, Jaffe infuses each chapter with the concepts, skills, theories, applications, and critical thinking proficiencies essential for success in today's diverse world.
"I feel that the research done and utilized is at an excellent level. . . . This is a solid text for our basic course in Public Speaking. . . . This book provides a clear overview to the subject matter and 'craft'."
"It's a textbook that students do not complain about! It's a textbook that offers an approach that is appropriate in today's 'small' world. It's a textbook that offers an excellent chapter on narrative speeches. It's a textbook that is flexible. It's a textbook that has a decent test bank. It's a textbook that recognizes that our Western views about speech-giving are not universal."
"A solid text in the field with an interesting and valuable focus on culture and diversity within public speaking."
