Reviews - What do customers think about Influencing Through Argument?

It's a shame...  Mar 23, 2008
...that this book has a current sales rank of around 520,000 on this site. Effective communication is the key to all success in life, and that goes beyond just being 'comfortable' in front of a group. My book, The Confident Speaker, became a New York Times bestseller because people are hungry for advice on how to overcome crippling anxiety as they present their message to an expectant audience. This book by Alfred C. Snider is a wonderful companion to mine because it teaches you how to become a 'psychologist' of language and communication in general. The Confident Speaker
A Great Argumentation and Debate Text at a Great Price   Apr 24, 2006
I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Houston-Downtown teaching Communication Studies. I was recently assigned to teach argumentation and debate for the Fall of 2006. In the past I have used Freeley (now w/Steinberg) and Rieke and Sillars (now w/Peterson), but both of those books are in the $80 range. As most of our students work and tend to be the first in their respective families to go to college (we are a federally recognized Hispanic serving institution), expenses do matter. I noticed Dr. Snider's updating of Influencing through Argument seemed very affordable.

Frankly, it's quite a bit more approachable that some other argumentation texts, which should make it a much better read for my students. The section on research is particularly good for novice undergraduate researchers, and the section immediately following it on the use of evidence is simply outstanding.

Perhaps most importantly, this book is also an amazing value, even at it's list price of 24.95 (and can usually be had for less than that) which my students should very much appreciate.
