Product description

Review

Reading this book is the equivalent of lounging in a leather club armchair, wreathed in cigar smoke and a couple of whiskies down, alongside a companion who's being funny and clever about Homer and Hello! magazine by turns. (Charlotte Higgins Guardian)

Entertaining ... You finish this book more than ready to rock a first in rhetoric. (Hermione Eyre Evening Standard)

This is the best available analysis (Boris Johnson)

Witty and revealing ... the chapter on Arrangement alone would probably bump up most student degrees by a class, not to mention the average oration (James McConnachie Sunday Times)

Leith gives modern relevance to an ancient practice. Read this entertaining and instructive book and you will never again mistake an occultatio for an occupatio. (Ian Finlayson The Times)

Book Description

A witty, elegant enquiry into the art of persuasion
