The author, who is an experienced speaker, has evidently given considerable thought to the preparation of the address, the nature of the audience, the peculiarities of speeches to be made on various occasions, and many similar problems with which the average speaker is concerned. His advice in general is excellent and the examples he has chosen from the available literature on the subject are exceedingly well selected. To any one who feels that a book of advice can help him in doing the job of public speaking better, this book is as good as any that can be recommended.
