I liked what Alda did with this book. It picked up right where his last book ended, but took off in a completely different direction. The book incorporated a number of speeches that Alda has given to various crowds. He not only does a great job explaining the speeches, what they mean to him, and what he thinks they can mean to others, but also gives wonderful descriptions of how nervous he was to give individual speeches and the work he did to overcome these nerves. More than taking any individual life lessons from this book, I took from Alda that if you take the time to think, research, and plan, you can always find something to say or do that may have an important impact on others.
