This book offers some pretty good tips and advice for the new or nervous public speaker. I've never taken a course or done much personal research on the topic, and as I increasingly find myself in professional situations where I must speak in front of a group, I wanted a simple primer with some good pointers. I browsed through the selection at my library, and this one was on the less corny end of the spectrum. The three straightforward "keys" to public speaking are preparation, performance, and evaluation, and the author offers some good tried-and-true examples and applications of various techniques.
