Reference guide to rhetoric and speech structure, backed by practical examples of historical speeches. A useful tool for people who are not used to public speaking.

The first thing I appreciated was the writer’s style, obviously immensely knowledgeable but making things understandable to the casual reader. As such, it can be read by anybody interested in spoken or written speeches. The numerous analyses and examples of such speeches allow the reader (i.e., me) to understand why rhetoric has kept a strong place in today’s world.

Well written book, with lots of examples. I enjoyed the examples and the author's analysis of various speeches, but I found myself disagreeing with him trying to fit the speakers to his classifications.

This is a great book, not only for speakers, but for anyone who wants to communicate more effectively. With plenty of real-life examples, the principles of rhetoric, and how to deliver it effectively, are explained in an entertaining way. Recommended to anyone who's ever been misunderstood.
