An audience-centered approach to public speaking

By focusing student attention on the dynamics of diverse audiences, ethics, and communication apprehension, the text narrows the gap between the classroom and the real world. The Tenth Edition includes new speech examples that model effective public speaking, as well as updated content that helps students better understand contemporary communication opportunities and challenges.
