KIRKUS REVIEW

An omnium gatherum for the handling of any type of meeting, this stresses the duties and responsibilities of the person in charge, the need for preparation, the practical techniques for the smooth and efficient running of a program. Besides outlining the fundamentals of a toastmaster's job, this also provides guidance for all contingencies -- hecklers, late, or non-appearing, speakers, room ventilation, the timing of meals, group routines, etc.; courtesies toward visiting speakers; provides introductions that have been used, and actual responses; lists amusing sayings, epigrams, categorizes humorous stories, etc., etc. A good reference book of conscientious guidance.
