Comment
Confidence in Public Speaking Nelson Public speaking textbook from a course I did long ago.
Public Speaking Module Berger   Public speaking coursepack from a course I did long ago (same one as the other public speaking book).
The Communication of Ideas Royal Bank of Canada This is an odd collection of how to write, use words, speak in public, etc. put out as a public service by a bank, of all things. Now over 40 years old even in this 19th printing, one can use the advice still, but it would have to be regarded as incomplete - and of course the social context mentioned has changed.
