When was the last time your students actually raved about a speech textbook?

Smart, compelling, fun, and affordable, Speak Up connects with students through great writing, useful guidance, and hundreds of custom-drawn illustrations that bring speech to life. Instructors appreciate the book's serious coverage of concepts and theories, fascinating real-life examples, and visual explanations that clarify complex ideas. And all this comes at less than half the price of competing texts.
Read the preface.
“I love this text book! I like the way it reads. I like the coverage of topics. I love the illustrations.... It is the perfect mix of theory and application. The examples are relevant and the illustrations are perfect for getting students to actually read the text.”
-- Sandra K. Bowen, Fayetteville Technical Community College
