As the first of its kind for this course, THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK has established itself as both a reference for the individual speaker and an excellent textbook for use in the public speaking course. The new edition of the THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK continues to distinguish itself by providing another innovation - a new spiral bound, tabbed format. Each of the chapters can stand alone, enabling the speaker to consult only those parts of the book covering the aspects of public speaking with which they need guidance. The new edition also offers expanded and updated research and presentation coverage, a new text-specific CD-ROM with interactivity that guides students through the speech-making process, and links to the Web-based Speech Builder Express speech-outlining program.
