Authors Douglas M. Fraleigh and Joseph S. Tuman successfully explains the fundamentals of public speaking in a witty manner in the textbook, Speak Up: An Illustrated Guide To Public Speaking. This 2nd edition is an excellent and often entertaining reference for college students who want to become more effective and influential speakers. It explains the process of talking to a group of individuals in a deliberate and structured manner, with the ultimate goal of influencing, informing, or entertaining. This straightforward, step-by-step guide takes learners through the basics of this art and science of persuasion. Douglas M. Fraleigh and Joseph S. Tuman continue to encourage students to develop their first speech, learn about speech ethics, and hone their listening skills. The importance of preparation, listening, and ethics are also emphasized throughout the book, along with audience analysis. Speak Up: An Illustrated Guide to Public Speaking features a detailed section in organizing and outlining speeches where students can learn how to choose their main points, organize their support materials, and deliver an organized speech. This is followed by instruction on language and delivery, and then the types of public speaking and methods of persuasion. Learners can gain inspiration from sample speeches by notable figures like Josh Betancur, President Barack Obama, General Douglas MacArthur, and even pop star Shakira – all of which are in the appendix. Speak Up: An Illustrated Guide to Public Speaking is a truly useful guide to making and delivering speeches not just for students but for professionals, too.
