Collected here are more than 50 of the world’s most momentous and insightful speeches, drawn from a vast range of historical eras and from persons of all walks of life.

Along with a transcript of each speech, a biography of the speaker is provided along with an explanation detailing why each speech was significant and its impact on the world. Evocative and inspiring, this is a fascinating collection of some of the greatest words ever spoken by mankind.
