Some Parts where really inspiring, others where added because the writer thought she had to. I mean why on earth would someone read a speech for Bush.

Recommends it for: People who like speeches
This book is a compilation of the greatest speech that was ever told. With exceptions such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a few dialogues, and some answers to simple interview questions, most of the text is speeches made by the most important people of our time.

Speeches that Changed the World (Bounty Books, 2006; 192) edited by Emma Beare is a collection of speeches, interviews, dialogue and one-liners that are supposed to have marked an epoch in time.

Shelves: history
serious, somber, statesmanlike.. wait a minute, there are also exchanges, even one-liners from famous & not-so-famous people in extraordinary situations like "Houston we've had a problem" and "give me the ****ing money" (Bob Geldof) on top of the usual suspects like MLK's I have a dream and JFK and the Gettysburg and Galileo. It's curiously organized under themes such as "Ancient history", "love", "war" and "sport"... So we have the Dalai Lama, Lady Di ("there are three of us in this marriag ...more

Another Christmas gift, full of fantastic presentations ranging from MLK to Clinton to Elzabeth I, Woodrow Wilson, John Brown, the Daili Lama, Patrick Henery, Napolean, the list just goes on and on. What a compilation.

The book is all about what makes an orator great or influence others. Is it the choice of words, their feelings, passion or knowledge? I enjoyed it.

The Usual Suspects are present, such as Lincoln and MLK, but some "speeches" are literally one liners
