Product Information

Originally published in the 1910s, this is a classic textbook for the course in extemporaneous speaking during that era, offered at the Department of Public Speaking, Swarthmore College.

In all professions the thing that lifts an individual above his fellows is usually facility in self-expression. Leadership is the reward of the man who possesses the power of effective speech. The aim of the course is to equip the college student with the capacity for leadership that comes with the ability to impress one's personality on other people by means of the spoken word.

The course is planned especially to meet the needs of the non-professional or informal speaker who desires to cultivate facility in clear, convincing and effective expression, whether in private conversation, in business, or in any of the social, political, or professional organizations with which he may be connected.
