Impromptu Speaking, Second Edition provides a time-saving method and a guide for the type of speech anyone might make. The book, in particular, covers how to make short speeches in a conversational way.
Organized into four chapters, the book begins with an explanation of confidence in speechmaking. The role that sense of humor plays in a speech is also addressed. Subsequent chapter elucidates the five-point plan, which corresponds to the fingers and thumb of one hand. In studying the plan, no. 1 (little finger) always refers to the occasion, and no. 5 (thumb) always refers to the purpose of it. Then, with practice, notes are written against 2, 3, and 4 only. In the last chapter, plans and examples are given.
This book will be helpful to anyone who will make an impromptu speech.
