Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Buckley's witty and wordy book is directed at the person who wants to learn how to debate successfully. Along with advice on making a good case and ways to crush an opponent's arguments, he includes anecdotes about his days on the lecture circuit, using current social and political problems to illustrate his points and, in the process, get across some of his own opinions. He addresses ``How To Stop Slaughtering the English Language,'' a useful section not seen in most books of this type. He devotes only one chapter to basic tips on public speaking (rehearsing, dress, posture, etc.). His book moves at a leisurely pace, but the pointers are pertinent and the prose polished. Lustberg provides the more traditional how-to book, and it probably will be more helpful to the ordinary person interested in speaking well in public. The first section covers the basic tips on speaking: relax, prepare, develop good posture, have an open demeanor. The second section deals with effective speaking in meetings, interviews, confrontational situations, and court or legislative testimony. Lustberg lists do's and don'ts for public speaking and includes photographs to illustrate his points. His book is clearly and simply written, with good examples and illustrations. Literary Guild alternate. Both books are recommended for public libraries, but if funds are limited, Lustberg's book would probably be more useful. Some academic libraries might find Buckley's book a good choice. Rebecca Wondriska, Trinity Coll. Lib., Hartford, Ct.
