Section I. - General Suggestions for Speakers, Section II. - Public Speaking Self-Taught at Home, Section III. - The Speaker at his Task, Section IV. - Materials for Use in Preparing Speeches.
It has been prepared chiefly for those who do not understand the Art of Public Speaking.
The manner in which the book is prepared makes it possible for one to be his own teacher.
The emphasis is upon Section II, which provides Two Methods for learning, at home, how to meet the inevitable time when one shall be called upon unexpectedly to "Say a few words" or upon short notice to "Make a speech."
However, Sections I, III, and IV contain practical assistance, in Advice and Material, for those who are already competent speakers.
