Presenting to the class or delivering a speech to a large crowd can create anxiety, fear, and stress. Adapted from the best-selling text, The Art of Public Speaking, First Canadian Edition, will equip readers with tools and strategies to allay their fears while captivating audiences in various contexts, from the classroom to the workplace. Stressing the importance of public speaking in both the academic career and in the workplace is a challenge as students often don't realize that writing for the ear is different than writing for the eye. The scope of the text includes different public speaking situations (e.g., business meetings, web casting, teleconferencing, meetings, trade shows, etc.).The Art of Public Speaking walks readers through the steps and skills involved in crafting and delivering effective oral presentations. Bringing the theory to life, the authors include numerous engaging Canadian examples relevant to a variety of disciplines and careers. Examples and speeches draw on current topical issues (free trade, corporate spying, genetically modified food, etc.) that are important to Canadians and to post-secondary students. Whether a novice or a professional, every student will learn how to be a better public speaker through Lucas' clear explanations and thorough coverage. Ultimately, this text helps students learn practical oral communication skills that enable them to navigate through life with greater confidence to achieve personal and professional success.

"You are the message." What does that mean, exactly? It means that when you communicate with someone, it's not just the words you choose to send to the other person that make up the message. You're also sending signals about what kind of person you are--by your eyes, your facial expression, your body movement, your vocal pitch, tone, volume, and intensity, your commitment to your message, your sense of humor, and many other factors. The receiving person is bombarded with symbols and signals from you. Everything you do in relation to other people causes them to make judgments about what you stand for and what your message is. "You are the message" comes down to the fact that unless you identify yourself as a walking, talking message, you miss that critical point. The words themselves are meaningless unless the rest of you is in synchronization. The total you affects how others think of and respond to you.

The Last Word investigates the debased art of eulogy. Through insightful, surprisingly playful readings of famous eulogies (from a scene in Love Actually to Jacques Derrida’s heart-rending essays on the deaths of his peers), Cooper argues against the socially sanctioned desire to avoid thinking about death that results in clichéd memorials, honoring neither the living nor the dead.
