PRACTICAL Public SPEAKING
Printed in U. S. A.
This book is dedicated to the man who needs to express himself better and to deliver his ideas more effectively. It is written for the great multitude of men who need Public Speaking for practical purposes.
It is a course in Practical Speaking, offering concise, up-to-date instruction on the one art used least and needed most by business men. It offers the student definite working principles which apply to speech problems of the twentieth century, not the obsolete, theoretical rules of the old-fashioned elocution. It is based upon the laws that govern effectiveness in the use of the spoken word.
The author has for years specialized in the practical side of the Speech Arts. As a platform speaker of wide experience, working with all kinds of audiences, he has put every theory to the acid test and discarded all which are not effective in practical application. As a teacher, he has for years conducted large classes of business and professional men. He knows their problems and their needs and has planned courses which give them exactly what they want, without waste of time. This book is planned to carry the principles of Practical Speaking to the students of our schools and universities and to the thousands of others who have the same need, but who are unable to attend classes. It appeals to all who are ambitious to improve their speaking ability in everyday life.
