Icebreaker A Manual for Public Speaking
This is a book I bought for class,although I didn't think I needed it. I already considered myself a good public speaker and was only taking the class to get an easy A and get a little closer to a diploma.
I was wrong. Without being overly intimidating for someone unfamiliar with public speaking, it contains information that can benefit even the most polished speakers.
This book is laid out in a logical format and gives instruction on not just how to speak in public, but different kinds of speeches and occasions where each is appropriate.
One of the lasting things I took away from this book was audience analysis. It is easy to understand your audience when giving a presentation at work, but what about an unfamiliar audience at a regional conference? This book provides good instruction on figuring out how to appropriately reach almost any audience.
