Fountainhead Press - Speech is both a skill and a field of study. Today, however, the rich tradition of speech communication is either reduced to a few quick mentions of Aristotle and Cicero or lost altogether. Why have we forgotten this history and, more importantly, why are we not sharing these origins with our students? Authors Joseph M. Valenzano III, Jim A. Kuypers, and Stephen W. Braden bring tradition to the forefront of public speaking instruction through the lens of skills-centered pedagogy in The Speaker, fourth edition. This text will help students understand the “why” behind the “how” of effective public speaking.
