Format: Audio CD
I ordered this CD expecting the full length audio of the listed speeches. They are mostly segments.
I compared the CD's version JFK's "Ich Bin Ein Berliner" speech to a video of the speech. The CD version sounds like a Teddy Kennedy remake. Many of JFK's pronunciations on the video do not match those on the CD. There is an obvious over-dubb of JFK's German attempt at "Let them come to Berlin."
MLK's "I Have a Dream" speech is not the one delivered in Washington DC as advertised. In the CD version, MLK says, "I have a dream this afternoon" not "I have a dream today" as it shows him saying in my video of the Washington speech. He also remarks, "I have a dream this afternoon that right here in Detroit..."
The CD insert reads, "Ronald Reagan: 'Berlin Wall'." I assumed this would be the speech from the Berlin Wall (as the insert says) where Reagan said, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall." Instead, the CD has a two-minute segment from an American TV address in which he tells of seeing the Berlin Wall.
The CD is not what I expected or would have paid for had I known the true content.

This collection of great 20th century speeches is quite inspiring. From speeches focused on civil rights to great dreams of going to the moon, to great battles against evil empires, this collection transcends politics to demonstrate how some of America's great leaders have used their speaking skills to change the world. I especially recommend this CD for someone worried about delivering speeches; it should enhance your confidence to see how some of the masters did it.

In contrast to the previous reviewer I found this collection of short exerpts of great speaches and the accompanying commentary to be very inspiring and educational. I have made it required listening for my children.
