Author of "How to Speakin Public," "Great Speeches and How to Make Them," "Complete Guide to Public Speaking," "How to BuildMental Power," "Talks on Talking," etc., etc._ PREFACEAs you carefully study the successful methods of public speakers, as briefly set forth in this book, you willobserve that there is nothing that can be substituted for personal sincerity. Unless you thoroughly believe inthe message you wish to convey to others, you are not likely to impress them favorably.It was said of an eminent British orator, that when one heard him speak in public, one instinctively felt thatthere was something finer in the man than in anything he said.Therein lies the key to successful oratory. When the truth of your message is deeply engraved on your ownmind; when your own heart has been touched as by a living flame; when your own character and personalittestify to the innate sincerity and nobility of your life, then your speech will be truly eloquent, and men willrespond to your fervent appeal.GRENVILLE KLEISER.New York City, August, 1919.CONTENTS
PAGEPREFACE vSUCCESSFUL METHODS OF PUBLIC SPEAKING 11STUDY OF MODEL SPEECHES 55HISTORY OF PUBLIC SPEAKING 91EXTRACTS FOR STUDY, WITH LESSON TALK 117HOW TO SPEAK IN PUBLIC 145SUCCESSFUL METHODS OF PUBLIC SPEAKINGYou can acquire valuable knowledge for use in your own public speaking by studying the successful methodsof other men. This does not mean, however, that you are to imitate others, but simply to profit by theirexperience and suggestions in so far as they fit in naturally with your personality.All successful speakers do not speak alike. Each man has found certain things to be effective in his particularcase, but which would not necessarily be suited to a different type of speaker.When, therefore, you read the following methods of various men, ask yourself in each case whether you canapply the ideas to advantage in your own speaking. Put the method to a practical test, and decide for yourself whether it is advisable for you to adopt it or not.Requirements of Effective SpeakingThere are certain requirements in public speaking which you and every other speaker must observe. You mustbe grammatical, intelligent, lucid, and sincere. These are essential. You must know your subject thoroughly,and have the ability to put it into pleasing and persuasive form.But beyond these considerations there are many things which must be left to your temperament, taste, andindividuality. To compel you to speak according to inflexible rules would make you not an orator but anautomaton.The temperamental differences in successful speakers have been very great. One eminent speaker usedpractically no gesture; another was in almost constant action. One was quiet, modest, and conversational in hisspeaking style; another was impulsive and resistless as a mountain torrent.It is safe to say that almost any man, however unpretentious his language, will command a hearing inCongress, Parliament, or elsewhere, if he gives accurate information upon a subject of importance and in amanner of unquestioned sincerity.You will observe in the historical accounts of great orators, that without a single exception they studied, read,practised, conversed, and meditated, not occasionally, but with daily regularity. Many of them were endowedwith natural gifts, but they supplemented these with indefatigable work.Well-known Speakers and Their Methods
