Crafted from feedback and usability studies from hundreds of students nationwide, this innovative introduction to public speaking text combines a groundbreaking visual presentation with abundant examples and the vital practical skills, concepts, and theories today's students need to become effective public speakers.This tabbed, spiral-bound guidebook takes all previous notions of a public speaking handbook and turns them upside down. Built from the ground up around scientific data on how public speaking students study and prepare for their speeches, this unique guidebook places the practical how-to information and examples students crave right up front, and then supports them with the concepts and theories instructors know their students need to succeed. The book's stunning visual presentation engages students on a whole new level and provides them with easy-to-find answers and extensive examples that nearly leap off the page. Concepts and theory come to life through visual examples, checklists, tables and graphics that allow students to better understand concepts and make connections at a glance.Combining its comprehensive coverage with a powerfully visual Dorling Kindersley (DK) design, the student- and instructor-tested DK Guide to Public Speaking is an easy-to-navigate resource with dynamic visuals, current examples, and concise instruction that equips students with the tools and confidence to be effective speakers.
