Overview

Book 3(of four) deals with Deliberative and Epideictic suits; the author mentioning that he will discuss three departments of rhetoric: Arrangement, Delivery, and Memory—leaving Style for the fourth book. In his treatment of the Deliberative speech he discusses Advantage and its subdivisions (Security and Honor). In discussing the Epideictic speech he moves into a deep elaboration of Invention, Arrangement, Delivery and Memory. Contrary to the myth that the Ad Herennium is just a book on rhetoric and language, it is a book on the art of public speaking. It is —really— a practical manual for administrators, managers, executives, paralegals, teachers, professors, judges, attorneys in general, litigators in particular—anyone who wishes to write or give a speech. Though humble in its approach, it delivers greatness.

Meet the Author

Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 – 43 B.C.) was a Roman philosopher, statesman, lawyer, orator, political theorist, and consul, descendant of a wealthy Roman family, and is widely considered the greatest Roman orator and prose stylist.
According to Plutarch, Cicero was an outstanding student, endowed with a sharp mind and deep passion for learning. So, it isn’t surprising to see why he would later write: “A mind without instruction can no more bear fruit than can a field, however fertile, without cultivation.” Given his notoriety as a promising student, he earned the distinction to study Roman law under Quintus Mucius Scaevola, founder of the scientific study of Roman law.
Under the influence of the Greek Stoics, Cicero worked passionately to include the principles of natural law into the body of Roman juris¬prudence, which later became the basis for a political theory of universal social and political truths. Without a doubt, Cicero’s passion for the law and his socio-ethical ideas are a major contribution to the evolution of political theory.
Much like Plato, Cicero had a definite obsession with the forming of a perfect republic, borrowing from Polybius, Plato, and Aristotle the idea that a mixed constitution was the best form for governing states.

Although a great author, this book does not meet my expectations in that it is only 25 pages long. There is little in here that can not be found in either Quintilian or John Quincy Adams.  As a first time Nook buyer, I find myself gun-shy in purchasing another book from Nook.
