KIRKUS REVIEW

This won't make a speaker out of a dummy, but it will help the utterly untrained and experienced speakers alike to analyze their own methods and, possibly, improve their technique. About a quarter of the book covers the basic points on how to prepare and deliver a good speech, and the author illustrates his points -- all well taken. Then the bulk of the book is a collection of apt quotations, jokes, wisecracks, epigrams, amusing definitions, interesting brief bits from famous lives, colorful phrases, and a great number of quotations, topically arranged.
