Reviews

"The Teen's Guide to Debating and Public Speaking" by teacher, coach, and speaking competition organizer Claire Duffy is the perfect instructional introduction to public speaking and would admirably serve as a textbook for junior high and senior high debate classes and programs. Speaking well builds confidence and opens up a world of opportunity, in education, leadership, careers, and community and political engagement. In an increasingly competitive world, being a convincing, passionate, and persuasive speaker is essential to standing out from the crowd. In "The Teen's Guide to Debating and Public Speaking" Duffy not only demystifies the process but makes it fun. Students will learn all about the best ways to prepare for a debate or speech, the persuasive power of reason, the art of argument and rebuttal, and, when worse comes to worst, how to be gracious in defeat. Including practical tips from the pros and helpful step-by-step examples, "The Teen's Guide to Debating and Public Speaking" is the essential handbook for making every spoken word count and will prove to be an enduringly popular and highly valued addition to school and community library Public Speaking/Debating instructional reference collections. It should be noted for personal reading lists that "The Teen's Guide to Debating and Public Speaking" is also available in a digital book format.
