The Art of Public Speaking is a book by American writer Dale Carnegie, first published in 1915. A classic book from a recognized master on the topic, Carnegie lays out for the reader different strategies to improve and develop their oratory skills, and teaches that the best way to become a confident, effective public speaker, is simply to do it. Practice, practice, practice. And while you're at it, assume the positive, have something to say, forget the self, cast out fear, be absorbed by your subject, and most importantly, expect success. Fair warning, this book, while it might be useful to someone looking for tips on how to perform public speaking, does have a lot of things that aren't exactly relevant today. It also has a LOT of speeches by various people.

This book has 159,872 words, 282 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1915.
