Welcome to the SAGE edge site for The Public Speaking Playbook, Second Edition.

The SAGE edge site for The Public Speaking Playbook by Teri Kwal Gamble and Mike Gamble offers a robust online environment you can access anytime, anywhere, and features an impressive array of free tools and resources to keep you on the cutting edge of your learning experience.


The Public Speaking Playbook, Second Edition, shows students how to prepare, practice, and present their public speeches with the highest level of confidence. With a focus on actively building skills, Teri Kwal Gamble and Michael W. Gamble coach students in the fundamentals of the public speaking process, using brief interactive learning modules that allow students to practice—and improve—their public speaking. The highly anticipated Second Edition of this bestselling text features a more inclusive playbook analogy, exposing students to additional arenas—for example, politics, music, and business—to hone their skills and improve their performance. As students master the skills, they are also encouraged to think critically about what it means to “play fair” in public speaking, with a focus on diversity, ethics, and civic engagement.

Special thanks are also due to Suzanne Atkin of Arizona State University, Kristyn Hunt Cathey of Lamar University, Gillie Haynes of American University, and Sorin Nastasia of Southern Illinois University for developing the ancillaries on this site.
