“I am brand new to both speech and debate this year, and wasn’t really sure about impromptu. Now I can deliver a good solid speech almost every time.
The book was wonderful. I have it and absolutely love it. It really helps you when it comes to the logistics of preparation. Every single one of the questions I had about impromptu were answered. There’s even a sample speech in the back of the book. Great job Zac! No impromptu speaker should be without this book!”   -—Andrew Roblyer, Colorado Springs, CO – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
