Editorial Reviews

William Safire
Valenti has done for speaking what Strunk and White have done for writing. . . . Nobody should try to get on his hind legs to make a speech without consulting Valenti.
Warren Buffet
In a class by itself . . . Speak Up with Confidence is a must read for any public speaker.
George H.W. Bush
Everybody in public life ought to read the updated version of Jack Valenti's Speak Up With Confidence. In fact, it is a must read for those who take their case to the public.
