A Guidebook to Presentation Speaking, 7th edition, has been significantly expanded to follow the template of the Five Canon approach. Presentation speaking has been chosen as the title because presentations are used more frequently than public speaking. Presentation speaking includes situations where speakers use both verbal and nonverbal communication to send messages to audiences creating relationships with people who are usually present. Public speaking is a specialized form of speaking used in organizations, communities, and government settings.
