    This is the best book I've ever read on how to present yourself and your ideas to an audience. The book is also very helpful to audience members. If you plan on listening to a single political speech this decade, read this book. You will never watch politicians the same way again. If you ever wanted to know 'how to get what you want' and you are gonna have to speak to others to get it, buy this book.
