Item description for Speechcraft: An Introduction to Public Speaking by Brent C. Oberg...
Overview A guide to public speaking covers such topics as delivery techniques, listening skills, modes of speaking, and oral interpretation of literature.
Publishers Description Many speech texts are either too theoretical or too bland for effective use in the typical classroom. This book provides students with enough theory and information to learn beginning speech, but emphasizes practical exercises and activities. Each unit supports one or two clear specific learning objectives with a number of different activities and assignments. The craft of public speaking is learned by doing it in a hands-on, workshop type of program. This text is the result of extensive research as well as practical experience. The techniques have been proven successful in the author's own public speaking courses. Eight chapters: Communication Apprehension: Techniques of Delivery: Listening Skills: Topic Selection, Organization, and Research; Different Modes of Speaking; Speaking with Different Purposes; Oral Interpretation of Literature; Applied Activities.

Wow. I mean, wow. Jan 27, 2002
Without this book I would have never suceeded in speech the way that I have. Not only did I recieve an A in the class, but I took first place at a prestigious local championship. It not only assists you in technique, but it also is reletively entertaining!
Not just another boring guide to speaking Jan 19, 2000
This book really helped me out. It's not another really boring books on public speaking. It actually is interesting, and I got good grades on my speeches after reading this book. I also recommend the author's other book that is geared towards forensics competitions if you compete.
It kept me awake all night Sep 1, 1999
Using this book, I learned the basics of competitive speaking and got an "A" in my speech class. I highly recommend this book to any high school student who wants to do well in a forensics class.
