A local community college professor decided to fight back. "The price of books for our students is just getting higher and higher and, combined with the rising cost of tuition, it's killing these kids," said Peter Jason, Ph.D. "Remember, students are one of the poorest groups of people in America. Almost half of them have at least one part-time job. In fact, one of my students has three jobs. She is a part-time sales clerk at a clothing store three days a week, then works three evenings a week as a pizza cook, and on weekends she does manicures at a beauty salon. And she still manages to have a high GPA and go to school full-time."

Textbook prices are traditionally high. Adding to that problem, many college instructors change textbooks year after year; they either upgrade to a new edition or switch to an entirely different textbook. This further hurts students because if an instructor no longer uses a particular textbook, that book has no resale value.

Dr. Jason decided to make life a little easier and a lot cheaper for his students by writing his own book on public speaking. "Many books have an increased price because of bells and whistles: CD-ROMs, lots of color photographs, and lots of graphics. I talked to my students, and many of them, like me, prefer to keep things simple. So, during a sabbatical a few years ago, I wrote my own textbook. I made sure that it wasn't long-winded. I called it Successful Public Speaking: How To Be Brief, Concise, and to the Point.

"Compared to most other public speaking primers, mine is half the number of pages, and one-third the price. That is, $30 instead of $90. Plus, it is published in a three-ring binder format. So, when I wrote a second edition last year, students only had to buy the 35 new pages and delete 35 of the original pages. For only $7.00, they had upgraded to the new edition. I've had great feedback from my students about this loose-leaf concept. Maybe the word will get out, and more writers and publishers will try it."

Sách không mọc trên cây

Một giáo sư dạy tại đại học cộng đồng quyết định đấu tranh lại. "Giá sách cho sinh viên càng ngày càng cao, và kết hợp với học phí tăng, đó là đang giết những đứa trẻ này," tiến sĩ Peter Jason, nói "Hãy nhớ rằng, sinh viên là một trong những nhóm người nghèo nhất Mỹ. Hầu hết phân nửa họ có ít nhất một việc làm bán thời gian. Thực tế, một sinh viên của tôi có ba việc. Cô ta là một nhân viên bán hàng bán thời gian tại một cửa hiệu quần áo ba ngày một tuần, rồi còn làm ba tối một tuần đứng nấu pizza, và cuối tuần làm móng tay ở tiệm làm đẹp. Và cô vẫn có điểm GPA cao và đến trường toàn thời gian."

Giá sách có ghi chú thường cao. Thêm vào vấn đề, nhiều giáo viên trường còn đổi sách hàng năm; họ nâng cấp sách mới hay đổi sách hoàn toàn. Sinh viên bị thiệt vì nếu không dùng sách đó nữa, quyển sách không còn giá trị bán lai.

Dr Jason quyết định làm cho cuộc sống dễ dàng hơn và rẻ tiền hơn cho sinh viên bằng cách viết sách xuất bản công cộng. "Nhiều sách tăng giá vì những cái chuông và còi: CD-RÓM, nhiều hình ảnh, và nhiều biểu đồ. Tôi nói chuyện với sinh viên, và nhiều người trong số họ, giống tôi, cũng muốn làm đơn giản. Nên, trong thời gian du khảo vài năm trước, tôi đã viết sách. Tôi đảm bảo nó không tháo lâu. Tôi gọi nó là Thành Công xuất bản: Làm sao ngắn gọn, súc tích và đi vào vấn đề.

"So với những lần xuất bản đầu tiên, sách của tôi phân nửa số trang và phần ba giá. Là, $30 thay vì $90. Thêm nữa, xuất bản loại bìa còng ba lỗ. Nên, khi tôi viết tái bản, sinh viên chỉ cần mua 35 trang mới và thay 35 trang gốc. Chỉ với $7.00, họ nâng cấp lên phiên bản mới. Tôi nhận được phản hồi tốt từ sinh viên của tôi về quan niệm rời này. Có thể thế giới sẽ thoát khỏi, và nhiều người viết sách xuất bản sẽ thử nó."

Một giáo sư ở trường cao đẳng cộng đồng địa phương quyết định phản công. "Giá bán sách cho các học sinh của chúng tôi tăng lên từng ngày và, kết hợp với việc tăng chi phí học phí, điều đó đã giết chết những đứa trẻ này," Tiến sĩ Peter Jason nói. "Hãy nhớ rằng, các em sinh viên là một trong những nhóm người nghèo túng nhất ở Hoa Kỳ. Gần một nửa sinh viên có việc làm bán thời gian. Thực ra, một trong những sinh viên của tôi có ba việc làm. Cô ấy là một nhân viên bán hàng bán thời gian làm việc ba ngày một tuần ở một cửa hàng quần áo, sau đó làm việc ba đêm một tuần như là một người thợ làm bánh pi-za, và cuối tuần làm thợ chăm sóc móng tay ở một cửa hiệu chăm sóc sắc đẹp. Và cô vẫn đạt được điểm trung bình học lực cao và đến trường toàn thời gian."

Giá bán sách giáo khoa thường có truyền thống cao. Bổ sung vào vấn đề đó, rất nhiều trợ giáo ở các trường cao đẳng thay đổi sách giáo khoa theo từng năm; họ hoặc nâng cấp lên ấn bản mới hoặc chuyển sang sách giáo khoa khác hoàn toàn. Điều này làm cho sinh viên khó khăn hơn vì nếu một trợ giáo không sử dụng một cuốn sách giáo khoa cụ thể, cuốn sách đó không còn giá trị để bán lại nữa.

Tiến sĩ Jason quyết định làm cho cuộc sống của các sinh viên dễ chịu hơn một chút và rẻ hơn rất nhiều bằng cách viết một cuốn sách của riêng ông về diễn thuyết trước công chúng. "Nhiều cuốn sách có giá bán tăng cao vì kèm theo các phụ kiện như: các đĩa CD-ROMs, rất nhiều ảnh màu, và nhiều hình ảnh minh hoạ. Tôi trò chuyện với các em học sinh, và rất nhiều em, giống như tôi, thích những thứ đơn giản hơn. Do đó, trong suốt kỳ nghĩ phép cách đây vài năm, tôi đã viết cuốn sách giáo khoa của mình. Tôi bảo đảm cuốn sách không dài dòng. Tôi đặt tên cho cuốn sách là Để thành công khi diễn thuyết trước công chúng: Bí quyết phát biểu ngắn gọn, súc tích và đi thẳng vào vấn đề.

So với hầu hết những cuốn diễn thuyết trước công chúng đầu tiên , cuốn của tôi có một nửa số trang, và một-phần ba giá thôi. Nghĩa là, chỉ có 30 đô-la thay vì 90 đô-la. Thêm vào đó, nó được xuất bản dưới dạng giấy được đục lỗ có vòng kim loại xuyên qua để dễ dàng tháo, ráp. Vì thế, vào năm ngoái, khi tôi viết ấn bản thứ hai, các sinh viên chỉ cần mua 35 trang mới và bỏ đi 35 trang ban đầu. Chỉ với 7 đô-la, các em có thể nâng cấp lên ấn bản mới. Tôi nhận được rất nhiều ý kiến phản hồi từ các sinh viên về khái niệm tháo-ráp này. Có lẽ sách sẽ xuất bản rộng rãi, và có thêm nhiều tác giả và nhà xuất bản sẽ thử xem thế nào."
