Contents Notes
v-1: Speaker's reference guide -- v-2: Apt comparisons -- v-3: Day and date book -- v-4: Special occasion book. From the Blurb: Each of the four self-contained volumes is packed with unique "speech captivators" that will enable you to instantly seize and hold your audience's undivided attention. Here is just a small sample of the many outstanding features you get: Volume 1: provides a wealth of fascinating information-everything from quips and epigrams to scholarly citations-that will make your speeches sparkle, no matter what the topic. Organized alphabetically under more that 150 different subject headings, this volume contains several thousand quotations, definitions, anecdotes, witticisms, and epigrams that will spice up every speech. Volume 2: is a thesaurus of multiple comparisons, symbols, synonyms and antonyms for over l,000 words-words that are most frequently used by speakers. This quick and convenient guide draws upon literature, mythology and other goldmines of wisdom to supply you with graphic word pictures. Volume 3: is a complete almanac of speech lead-ins based on important anniversaries, events, holidays and other observances-surefire openers that will win over your toughest audience. Volume 4: highlights more than 50 special events-award presentations, graduation ceremonies, weddings, retirements and other noteworthy "personal" occasions, ranging alphabetically from accepting a nomination to welcoming a distinguished visitor. Each easy-to-read paragraph contains a separate speech angle that you can use independently or combine into a single speech. There is also an impressive array of ideas for speech outlines and introductions. Here, in short, is one of the biggest and best speaker's aids ever published. Put it to work for you and you'll have your audience hanging on your every word-starting now and for years to come!
