HOW TO MAKE BETTER SPEECHES

An excellent, well-rounded book, covering all the salient points, but offering nothing particularly new or revolutionary. Sound advice on the importance of having something to say, of organizing the material, considerations of voice, posture, development of techniques of using pauses, shifting pace, keeping material flexible. The advice is strongly against memorizing anything but- possibly- a beginning, an ending, and the main outline points. Part of the book takes up problems of introductions, presiding, running a forum, a discussion group; speaking on the radio.
