Question:i am in college and taking a speech class. i thought i could save a little money by using the book my brother had for his speech class. his is the 8th edition and the one i'm supposed to have is the 9th. does anyone know how similar the table of contents is? does anyone have the 9th they could compare this to?
Part1) speaking and listening 1)speaking in public 2)ethics and public speaking 3) listening (appendix-giving your first speech)

Part 2) Speech Preparation:getting started 1)selecting a topic and purpse 5 )analyzing the audience 6)gathering materials 7)supporting your ideas

Part 3 ) speech preparation: organizing and outlining 8) organizing the body of the speech 9)beginning and ending the speech 10) outlining the speech
