"It is a great book as it includes substantial information on the most up-to-date communication theoretical concepts in relation to public speaking, as well as good supplemental material that would be useful for opening the door to developing speaking skills for our students."
"Unquestionably the best handbook-format textbook, and the most focused, clearly written public speaking text on the market. It's efficient, well organized, and easy for students and instructors to use."
"The Speaker's Handbook is a compact, well-organized text that students find very readable and very usable. The format is user-friendly, and tabbed section dividers facilitate location of information. The text clearly presents communication theory and its applications in both academic and professional settings."
