The Little Book: A Beginner's Guide to Finding Your Rhetorical Voice helps students communicate with confidence in their speaking and writing. The material facilitates self-discovery and critical thinking as students learn to assess the validity of their ideas and express them with clarity and integrity. The early chapters introduce the concepts of rhetoric and sophistry as well as the importance of finding one's own rhetorical voice. Students learn that well-thought-out rhetoric is an expression of solid critical thinking and they also learn how to structure a rhetorical act. Later chapters address making appropriate word choices, building a sound argument, and the importance of analyzing an audience. Blending philosophy and communication, the book teaches specific skills such as using Aristotle's three proofs, defining intent and purpose, and constructing logical claims supported by credible evidence. The Little Book: A Beginner's Guide to Finding Your Rhetorical Voice supports students in their university course work and helps them make the transition from college student to professional -- communicating effectively and persuasively. This book is intended for undergraduate courses in public speaking and professional writing.
