Paul Halmos
This essay by the late mathematician and expositor Paul Halmos gives advice to young mathematicians on how to give public lectures, specifically at large colloquiums or invited addresses. The work is meant to let potential speakers know about common complaints regarding such talks before giving them.
The essay is equally useful for graduate students and new physicists.
