The Quick and Easy Way to Effective Speaking (Revised)
The Quick and Easy Way to Effective Speaking - Revised Author:Dorothy Carnegie This revision of the textbook that Dale Carnegie wrote for his courses has been based upon my husband's own notes and ideas. The title is one which he himself chose before his work was interrupted by death. I have tried to keep in mind his basic philosophy that effective speaking is more than "saying a few words" to an audience: it is the reveal... more »ing expression of a human personality.
Every activity of our lives is communication of a sort, but it is through speech that we assert our distinctiveness from other forms of life.
When we are unable to say clearly what we mean, through nervousness, timidity or foggy thought processes, our personality is blocked off, dimmed out, and misunderstood.
Business, social and personal satisfactions depend heavily upon our ability to communicate clearly to others what we are, what we desire, and what we believe in. And now, as never before, in an atmosphere of international tensions, fears and insecurities, we need the channels of communication between peoples kept open.
It is my hope that THE QUICK AND EASY WAY TO EFFECTIVE SPEAKING will be helpful in all these ways, both to those who wish merely to function with greater ease and self-confidence in practical pursuits, and to those who wish to express themselves more completely as individuals seeking a deeper personal fulfillment. -Dorothy Carnegie« less
