If you are a preacher, read this book. I wouldn't say it is the definitive preaching book, but I would say that it is a great book on preaching.

I enjoyed the content of this book, it seems a very accurate description of the wide state of preaching in the church presently. I found the flow/structure of this book a little hard to follow.
