Loved reading the excellent, and mostly inspiring speeches contained in this book! Reading the actual words of people from history is always much better than being told what happened by someone else with their own opinion and bias.

This book is a terrific resource for anyone interested in history or the art of American rhetoric. It includes text from great speeches that we all know, and speeches that are lesser known but still impressive.
