Mastering Public Speaking engages you in the principles, practice and ethics of public speaking, both as a speaker and a listener. In order to help you become a successful speaker, authors George Grice, John Skinner and Daniel Mansson identify the key ingredients of effective speeches: sensitive audience analysis, adequate research, clear organization and dynamic delivery.
The 10th Edition includes new speech examples and updated content to reflect how technology and the proliferation of social media has impacted the state of public speaking. This edition also offers a more focused overview of persuasive speaking as well as enhanced coverage of developing persuasive arguments. Three new student speeches, including a eulogy sample, provide examples of effective speaking.
