I Think I Actually Enjoy Reading this Textbook!!

Chapter 12 offers many useful tips on delivering a speech well.  I found this chapter very informative and enlightening, particularly when explaining the methods of delivering a speech and the characteristics of one’s voice.  I also found the section about body language to be very helpful because I feel I have problems with over-gesturing and not making proper eye contact.

This chapter has opened my eyes to many helpful ideas and practices concerning public speaking.  Understanding the 4 methods of delivery helps by teaching me about the various ways I can deliver my speeches.  I found the section entitled “The Speaker’s Voice” to be very informative and interesting overall, while the section entitled “The Speaker’s Body” was not only informative and interesting but rather eye-opening to certain things I should pay more attention to while speaking.

I think I actually enjoy reading this textbook.  To me it does not seem like a textbook but rather like a self-help book.  Perhaps that is because I need so much help with this subject and find it so challenging that I focus more on what I read and absorb it better.  Then again, the book just may be written well and offer great tips and ideas on how to give a good speech.   I think it may be both.
