it was amazing
bookshelves: communication, writing, preaching, speaking-oratory, top-5-speaking

Humorous anecdotes and great insights culled from close study of several of our greatest orators--Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Ronald Reagan--put together by a man who served as speechwriter for five U.S. Presidents make for a tremendous read. This was lots of fun, and I learned a lot about excellent oratory and quite a few good tips that work for the written language as well. I will buy a copy and read and apply quite a few of his principles.
