Overview

Few people look forward to talking in front of others, and even fewer do it as effectively as they could. But a career in psychology and its related fields involves extensive public speaking, so you will need to learn to do it well. Public Speaking for Psychologists is a practical and lighthearted guide to planning, designing, and delivering a presentation. The authors-both experienced presenters-offer realistic advice, useful tips, and humorous stories of embarrassing mistakes they'll never make again.
