As the first text of its kind, THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK has established itself as both an invaluable reference for the individual speaker and an excellent textbook for use in the public speaking course. Sprague and Stuart give careful consideration to key cultural, educational, and technology trends to provide not only exceptionally efficient blocks of text that reflect the most recent research, but also abundant examples-including a new collection of sample speeches. Each chapter within THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK'S eight tabbed parts can stand alone, enabling you to quickly consult just the section of the text most pertinent to their immediate needs. This Eighth Edition, now full-color throughout and bound with a durable plastic "comb" binding, offers new features such as Key Point boxes and Checklists, as well as new illustrations and other graphics that bring the material to life. This edition is further enhanced by a robust suite of online resources, including a fully interactive electronic version of the text and an integrated online study system that provides personalized learning plans designed to help you use your study time as efficiently and effectively as possible!
