Praise forRaise Your Voice
"Raise Your Voice is a simple, thorough and direct introduction to writing and speaking as arguments, and it is the most elegant text I have read on the topic. The text speaks directly to the student with its use of second person, outstanding examples of rhetorical situations, pithy quotations about strong communication, numerous technology tips, and great images. "Bomberger and Silva demystify the processes, planning, and production of texts in a way that speaks directly to the student, with the instructor free to listen in. The parts of rhetoric for which professors have specialized jargon are explained without the intimidating terminology and from the point of view of the user, a student who needs to solve communication problems across disciplines and genres. "Demystifying communication is the most important mission of anyone who teaches first-year composition or speech. Raise Your Voice does that job. I plan to use this book with my students."

What Critics Are Saying
"... (Bill) Israel's book offers a penetrating view of Rove and his political methods and successes, gleaned from personal and e-mail conversations — Israel describes a dinner party at Rove's Hill Country home — and studying him during that UT-Austin course titled 'Politics and the Press.'” -San Antonio Express-News Click HERE for more details
Like many neoconservatives, Rove openly admires Ronald Reagan. However, Israel alleges that Rove’s real guru is the legendary advertiser Tony Schwartz. Perhaps Schwartz’s most famous piece of propaganda was a 1964 TV commercial for Lyndon Johnson’s presidential campaign that featured a little girl plucking petals from a daisy as a mushroom cloud rose above her. ... Over the years Rove has played a part in nearly 80 political campaigns, and in the process, Israel argues, he has perfected the art of media spin and negative campaigning. -The North Coast Journal Weekly of Politics, People & Art Click HERE for more details
