Admit it. You are starting to sweat as you read this. Later you will have nightmares, all of which feature a microphone, a crowd of expectant faces, and you in your underwear. Kangas Swyer (U. of Nebraska, Omaha) describes the causes and effects of speech anxiety, and ways to conquer fear through training of both mind and body. She explains how to combine techniques such as deep breathing, cognitive restructuring, desensitization, and visualization to learn to manage speech anxiety if not eliminate it altogether. She includes scripts for progressive muscle relaxation and mental rehearsal which you may, if you actually prefer, practice in your underwear. This volume includes a CD of relaxation exercises and techniques. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
