Maybe good for first time high school coaches Jan 14, 2008
I have competed and coached on the college level for over a decade now. This is very basic stuff that may help a new coach or first time student. It does not give much insight for an experienced person.
Amazing!!!!! Jul 7, 2003
Obergs books have turned me from a shy student with a speech impediment to a National Tournament Orator. Definately a great buy!
Wow. I mean, wow Dec 19, 2001
I just think that this book is an excellent scource for any young debater, interper, orator, extemper, or any other typ of speech you could possibly imagine. I myself have competed and succeeded in many tournaments, and I can honestly say that reading this book has been one of the reasons!
A wonderful insight in speech competitions Jan 19, 2000
This book provides all the basics to winning forensics competitions. It provides information on nearly every event, excluding CX and LD debate. I found it to be very helpful for constructing winning oratories and extemp speeches. This is a great beginning to winning your events, although most of the winning part is still up to you.
An important book for high school forensics competitors. Aug 13, 1996
While perhaps not an essential book for the general reader, this book is an important resource for the many high school forensics competitors. It includes general information about how to present yourself, as well as specific chapters on each event. There are chapters on debate, student congress, oral interpretation, and public address. Unfortunately, no amount of reading about being a good speaker can make you one, but this book provides a helpful beginning
